Introduction

Explain the beliefs Christians believe about their responsibility for people at the beginning and the end of their lives. One of the most important things on which the Christian faith is based is the respect and responsibilities associated with life. Christians believe that it is sacred, as it comes from God - and only God, as he is the creator has right do destroy his ultimate creation - life. Creation of life was a great act of love from God, but he not only given life to us, he also gave us the power to create life as well.

Later, it will have its own babies and will repeat the process and raise them according to God's teachings. At the end of his/her life, he/she should again experience great care from other people helping him/her in the last days of ones life. Clearly, any action preventing life from taking its natural course would be against will of God - each of us has a special mission which God expects us to fulfil. ...read more.

Conclusion

Jesus taught people about "loving your neighbour" - Christians are supposed to treat life of every person with respect and help them if they are able to. By "neighbour" Jesus meant anyone - regardless of skin colour, age, sex or any bigger or smaller differences.

Christians believe that by respecting life and using abilities given to them by God they will gain the eternal life - after all, if we look at what is God teaching us about just by respecting life we do everything God expects us to do. Ten Commandments? Each of them is about respect for life, given it to be ourselves, parents or our neighbours. ?? ?? ?? ?? Lukas Kmiecik - GCSE RE ...read more.
