Sent Home to Die
Way too often I hear this scenario played again and again. This time it involves a man who has been attending our church for the past few years. He has a brain tumor. Doctors have decided that it's not worth operating or treating. He has a bum leg and he's poor, therefore, they have decided, he might as well just go home and die. He, of course, has not been told what the diagnosis is nor is he given any choice as to whether his life is worth living or not. The indifferent doctors have made the decision for him. He is at home...and any day now he will die.
