From Gene Edward Veith:

The Israeli parliament has passed a bill legalizing euthanasia, as long as it is performed by a machine. A timer will be put on life-support machines, which, without intervention, will simply turn them off. The device is similar to a "Sabbath Clock" that allows observant Jews to manage their machines without working on the sabbath.

"Parliamentarians reached a solution after discussions with a 58-member panel of medical, religious and philosophical experts.
"The point was that it is wrong, under Jewish law, for a person's life to be taken by a person but, for a machine, it is acceptable," a parliamentary spokesman said.

"A man would not be able to shorten human life but a machine can.""

Notice how legalistic moralism leads to logic-chopping loopholes, to missing the weightier purpose of the law, and thus to immorality.

Grace is not common.

How true! If ever you read the Talmud—the supreme book of Jewish orthodoxy—you will find that it is replete with such loopholes. Little wonder our Lord condemned the Pharisees for their traditions which contravened God's Law!


I tell you, this man went down to his house justified.
