Is Organ Donation OK?

Q. I know there is no mention of body parts donation in the Bible. Is it spiritually acceptable for a christian to donate his body parts or is it a personal decision? Does God Bless such donations?

A. As far as I know there is no Biblical prohibition against organ donation. Our bodies are only temporary dwellings, and after our death we’ll have no further use for them. They’ll be buried in the ground and will quickly decay. It’s the soul and spirit that are eternal. If it isn’t done for self glorification, I suppose God could bless an organ donation as an expression of love and compassion toward another person.
