I put organ donor on my licence is that a sin?


I have also put organ donor on my licence, and I don’t believe for a moment that it is a sin. When we die, the Bible says we sleep, and our bodies are of no further use to us. If we, in death, can save a life, or even improve the lives of those who receive our body parts, we have done well.

John 15:13   Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

The Bible says that it is good to save life, and even to give our own lives to save others. That is what Jesus did on the cross, for us.

Luke 6     Then Jesus said to them, “I will ask you one thing: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to destroy?” 10 And when He had looked around at them all, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored as whole as the other.

God’s goal is to save life, here on earth, as well as for eternity. It should be our goal as well. Organ donation, which is saving lives, is not mentioned in the Bible, but if we follow God’s principles, we should be focused on saving life as He is, right here and for eternal life.
