Q. I just read your answer about cremation which confirmed what I always thought about cremation being okay, but wanted to know what your beliefs were on organ donation. I would be an organ donor if I could get over the feeling that when the Lord resurrects our bodies, I will have given away part of mine. I know this must sound ridiculous, but was wondering what your studies have led you to believe. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts.
A. There’s no biblical prohibition against organ donation. After we die our bodies soon decay into dust and are beyond reconstitution.
In the resurrection, God provides new perfect bodies for all who’ve died, whether parts of our old bodies are missing or not (1 Corinthians 15:52).
