What Christians Should Know About Physician Assisted Suicide

Always to care; never to kill.

Dr. Erik Clary: Post-Doctoral Research Fellow for the CFC

For many here at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Erik Clary is no stranger. A former faculty researcher in the Department of Surgery at Duke University Medical Center, Erik left the medical academy in 2005 to pursue MDiv studies at Southeastern. Honing in on a call to academic ministry in the field of Christian ethics, he pursued additional studies leading to an MA degree in Bioethics from Trinity International University in Chicago and, most recently, a PhD in Theological Ethics from Southeastern. For the PhD work, Erik’s dissertation addressed the ethics of withdrawing artificial nutrition and hydration from people diagnosed as being in a persistent vegetative state.
God made man in the image of God. That is the reason we are not to murder other men. Physician assisted suicide is worthy of consideration based on the Biblical laws Christians are to obey.
