Would You Encourage A Born-Again Christian To Accept A Heart Transplant?
Why not? I'm a Christian and if I needed a new heart, why would I not take one?
People donate body parts because they want to give of themselves so that someone else can have the life that they can't have any longer... which in itself is a very noble and loving thing. Charity is a virtue... not a sin. Accepting a charitable gift when in desperate need is not a sin, but a gracious acceptance of love and life.
Think about this: Being Born-Again is all about "second chances" isn't it? How is a second chance at a physical life any different?
Question to Spock: "Did you change your mind?"
Spock said, "What was wrong with the one I had?"
I don't see the relevance. A born again believer is born of the Spirit. So, when the Bible speaks of a NEW heart, it's not talking about the blood pumping organ. If the organ needs a transplant, and one is available, replace it.
If it's a question of faith, IE, should he/she BELIEVE God for a miraculous healing, that's up to the person. We could encourage them to believe, but give them the right to say, "I don't know if my faith is that strong".

There are a lot of people who call themselves Christians, but from a simple reading of John chapter 3 we find that the Lord Jesus said emphatically: 'You MUST be born again!' John 3.7.I am a born-again Christian, born again about 20 years ago. I have the assurance that my sins are forgiven; and I...

I am a staunch Christian and have met and talked with many a born again Christian. I had no nerve to ask them to their face if they continued sinning. Very forgettable and forgivable sins like say, a little gluttony: one little bite off that Black Forest you love. Is it still sin in their eyes?Can...
