Today there was a radio station taking comments about the family who were trying to keep their “brain dead” child on life support. People were calling in calling the family arrogant and selfish for trying to maintain that slight hope for a miracle. Even the radio host was commenting that there has been no case in the history of mankind where a brain dead person had regained consciousness. He did not understand why the family was holding on to such a hopeless situation.
But are we forgetting about the resurrection of Jesus Christ? If doctors had monitored his brain waves after taking him off the cross, they would have found him “brain dead”. But according to the Bible, he came back to life and continued his ministry.
It is ironic that people, who have so much faith in the Bible, have such opposition to a family’s belief in a miracle. Can they be the arrogant and selfish ones?
