Christianity and Organ Donation

The Christian faith is based on the relevation of God in the life of Jesus Christ. Throughout his life, Jesus taught people to love one another and he proved his love for the world upon the cross. In keeping with this, Christians consider organ donation as a genuine act of love and a way of following Jesus’ example. This act of love then becomes part of a faith journey that is motivated by compassion to help someone else and demonstrates a sence of social responsibility.

Sacrifice and helping others are consistent themes in Christianity, which teaches the principle of seeking for others what you hope others would do for you. Enabling life to be lived as fully as possible is consistent with the teaching of the Son of God, Jesus Christ:

“…freely you have received, freely give”
Matthew, chapter 10:8
