God performed the first human transplant when He gave Eve, Adams rib.
I know people who have benefited from organ transplants, and those who have provided organs to save another's life.
I haven't met anyone who regreted either decision.

What do you think happens to your organs when you die and are buried? What about if you burn to death (perish the thought.) Or eaten by a wild animal?

What if you had an organ or a limb removed for medical reasons while you were living and that organ or limb went the incenerator with the rest of the medical waste?

Why do you think donating an organ to save someone's life or increase the quality of their life would be any different?

Does this mean that those who are alive at the time of the Rapture will retain their existing bodies, whereas those who have died will be given new bodies?

In answer to the question...body parts are like automobile parts. They have no life of their own. Your liver is essentially the same as any human liver. If you get a new oil filter for your car, it doesn't change the VIN number. In the rapture, whatever happens to the persons body, happens to whatever organs are inside him.

emg--Sounds much the same as the U.S. Here, a person may carry a donor card. Or, in some states, your desire to donate may be noted on your drivers license. Exactly WHICH organs is determined by the transplant team at the time of your death. It's strongly recommended that a person discuss their decision with family. Here it is assumed to be the choice of the individual. But in practice, a medical team would not force anything on an unwilling next of kin.

Ryan, A person who does not want to be resuscitated or remain on life support, must have that desire written as a "medical directive" and have made it available to the medical team. Otherwise they WILL be on life support if at all possible. Same with donation of organs. That is done only with advance written permission of the donor ( or at the time of death by a parent or legal guardian, if the donor is a child).

it is a great idea..no use me taking my all in the box when some else can use it...hey, when Jesus comes back, we are all going to have new bodies yaaay..who wants an old crinkly body anyhow...I cant wait for that day...

I am not familiar with the U.S. system. Can someone explain it please? Here in the U.K. we have an opt-in system. We are free to carry or not carry donor cards stating what we are happy to have removed and re-used on our death. However, the final decision remains with nearest of kin. There are suggestions that we should have an opt-out system in the hopes that this will result in more available organs but where the nearest of kin will fit into that I know not.

"People should be compensated for their work in harvesting organs from the deceased." They are. Here in the U.K. it's called the doctor's salary.
---emg on 8/20/06


Lee- Nobody sells organs. It is illegal to do so (not to mention unethical.) An organ donation is just that..a DONATION. The transplant surgery, however can be very costly,if not covered by insurance. The anti-rejection drugs given the recipient after the surgery, some times for an extended period of time, are expensive, too.
---Donna2277 on 8/19/06




The medical community is doing their job. If you choose to donate parts from your previous vessel the medical establishment has a team of people prepared to remove parts quickly and get them to those who are still alive and in need.

I don't see any problem with organ donation. But this issue does bring out some interesting questions, like:
I would'nt want my bodyparts ripped out without a fair chance of surviving a long coma.

I agree with this. But what about people that don't want to be on life support. I bet those organs are highly sought after.
---Ryan on 8/19/06


It requires time and surgical training to remove organs from a corpse. People should be compensated for their work in harvesting organs from the deceased.
Britain is a little more socialistic in their medical coverage. People pay for their medical coverage through a higer tax rate than their U.S. counterparts.
I am in this world but I am not of this world.

I see nothing wrong with it, look at it as your final act of helping someone. I won't be needing my eyes or kidneys or anything after I die so let them go to someone who can use them.
---bethie on 8/19/06


I am pleased to say that in the UK, we do not have profit making companies involved in marketing organs. So organs donated go to something like a national organ bank and they are used by hospitals for treatment of patients, who do not have to pay for them.
Similarly, our Blood Service is on a no pay basis.
---alan8869_of_UK on 8/19/06


What bothers me about organ donations is the huge amount of money medical companies make in selling organs. You donate, and they reap in the big bucks.

Mima ... are yuo saying that it matters that you have all your organs put in the grave with you? Or that you will be made new, even if some of them have been given to someone else?
---alan8869_of_UK on 8/19/06


As an answer to your question I offer Revelation 21:5 "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new." Certainly that would include your organs if the need arises.
---mima on 8/18/06


If I could totally trust the hospital I'd be a donater, it's just that I always have this thought in the back of my mind that the doctor would rather take my organ to experiment/learn than to save me!
---sue on 8/18/06


Organ donation is wrong because the person can still have a chance for life that organ has to come out of the body in working order and the person has to still be warm and on a life support machine. The documentries surrounding this topic made me throw away my application I would'nt want my bodyparts ripped out without a fair chance of surviving a long coma. (Just my Opinion on my life).

Organ donating isn't wrong. Organs doesn't save anyone. And just because they have someone else's organ in them, that don't mean they automaticly go to heaven. I had my right kidney removed in May. I don't miss it, and I surely don't miss the pain. I don't know what they done with that bad kidney. but I thank God that a person can live with just one kidney.
---Rebecca_D on 8/18/06


Organ donation is not wrong, although I don't personally like the idea for myself. Regarding the organ during the Rapture --- it is not the organ that saves. And you won't be needing your organ in heaven. I imagine there will be people in the Rapture without arms and legs too!
---Helen_5378 on 8/18/06


It is your soul that has been saved, not your body.
---emg on 8/18/06


Giving someone your organ is prolonging their physical life (in theory, cause if it's your time, there's nothing man can do to stop it), not their spiritual life. They could have Billy Graham's organs for all we know, and it still wouldn't get them a ticket to heaven. We accept the Lord into our souls, not our physical hearts, that's just an expression we use.
