This website is established to promote medical ethics that are soundly rooted in Biblical truth. We stand with the proclamation of the Bible that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (II Timothy 3:16-17).
The Westminster Confession of Faith amplifies this total sufficiency of Scripture when it states that “The whole counsel of God, concerning all things necessary for His own glory, man’s salvation, faith, and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture…” (Chapter 1.6.).
The centerpiece of this website is the Journal of Biblical Ethics in Medicine, founded in 1987 (and published through 1994) by three physicians who believed (and still do) that no other publication on medical ethical issues is Biblically sound and congruent. We establish this website so that all students, physicians, pastors, health professionals, and concerned Christians may freely read and research these labors of a variety of scholars who have advanced and enriched the modern medical ethical debate.
We make the claim of being Biblical, and on that basis, challenge those who differ with the positions stated here to demonstrate a Biblical position of those opposing views. We are willing to publish such views on this site after proper editorial and professional review.
Any differing views, editorial comment, or manuscripts should be directed to the Editor,
