Christian Nursing 101: Human Personhood & Dignity

When I was asked to review the book, Lighting the Way: A Handbook for Christian Nurses and Midwives, I was excited to see how my Christian colleagues “across the pond” encouraged nurses and midwives. What you quickly discover is some of the health care issues we face in the States are similar to those of our colleagues around the world. Thus, I wasn’t surprised with an article on how society’s idea or worldview of humanity is rapidly changing. The chapter on personhood gave me a more alarming philosophy of the actual dehumanizing of mankind. Usually we see where scientist and creationist are tweeking with the DNA for a better human, almost like a special ordered human being. But, Wyatt’s article discusses selecting and deselecting some attributes that will no longer be classified as humans. An article like this and others, send me to my knees pleading with the Lord, “Please come quickly!” Do not let us become any more depraved and wicked, rejecting your ways and your laws (Romans 1).

I would love to hear from you!
