On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (11/12/20), Hank addresses an article in National Review, “Biden’s Pick for Coronavirus Task Force: ‘Living Too Long is Also a Loss’” by Jim Geraghty. President-elect Joe Biden announced that his coronavirus task force will include Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania. According to Dr. Emmanuel, it’s morally problematic to live past the age of 75. Whether one is feeble or not is irrelevant—and a calculation of consumption over contribution is equally irrelevant. The meaning of one’s life should not be bound up in one’s autonomy, personal happiness, or engagement in a particular activity that brings satisfaction. Rather, our purpose, and where we find our meaning in life, is in glorifying, loving, and serving the Triadic One—entering into the life of the Trinity, in which the omnipotent Father engrafts the life of His Son into us by His Spirit so that we may become partakers of the divine nature.
Hank also answers the following question:
- I am both a Muslim and a Christian. I believe that if we’re going to follow Jesus, we need to submit our will to God, which falls into the definition of Muslim. What are your thoughts?
