Abstract

There exist various Christian explanations concerning suffering. Since Biblical times,
multiple formulations have been made by the religion regarding the significance of God in the
suffering process. God, is regarded as a mighty being with strong capabilities of taking care of
persons undergoing suffering. Similarly, according to religion, pain is caused due to personal
reasons as well as natural factors. Christians universally accept the Biblical concepts amid
suffering. However, medical practices like euthanasia aim to reduce the pain faced by individuals
with terminal illnesses. The paper aims to explore the Christian worldview on euthanasia

Introduction
According to Christianity, individuals who undergo suffering possess high chances of
inheriting the kingdom of God (Anderson et al., 2017). As such, during the process, the
individuals are hardened in terms of their spiritual life. Suffering thus enables Christians to
strengthen their faith and work towards inheriting the Kingdom of God. The concept of pain is
illustrated by the hardships Jesus underwent in the quest to bring salvation to man. According to
the Christion view, the suffering that Jesus faced was purposeful. Similarly, the pain that
Christians undergo is meant to bring change. The concepts of Christianity, thus, views the death
of Christ as a way for salvation to humanity.
Fallenness of the World
In the light of the Christian perspective, George can view his predicaments as the
consequences of sin...
