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.

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.
