What does Christianity say about being an organ donor?

is it against Christianity or not a big deal or what. Because both subjects mean a lot to me.

  • Do unto others as u would like done to u. If u were going to die today without a kidney and one was donated to save you, how can that be wrong?

  • Hmmm that is truly an excellent question-I have never thought of it and wouldn't even know where in the Bible to find the answer. Either way I am both because both mean a lot to me as well. Please, if you find the answer, let me know-and I will do the same for you. But it has to be be scripture for me or I don't buy it:)

  • The Bible is not specific on this matter, but it says..no greater love has one man for another that he lay down his life for a friend. Organ donations and blood transfusions are ok in my book. When my SIL needed a kidney transplant, I was going to get tested to see if I was a match. She wouldn't let me...not because of religion though. If my husband or my kids needed an organ, you better believe I'd be the first in line to get tested.
