#17: On Dying Well Part II
Play • 43 min

In this episode, J.P. and Stan continue discussing a path toward ethical clarity through the complex conversations surrounding death and dying.


In this podcast we discuss:

  • Is death a process or an event?
  • What are the major distinctions and implications between the two views of how the body and soul are “connected”?
  • What is the difference between having consciousness because of the soul and being alive because of the soul?
  • How do we evaluate issues in medicine in light of J.P. and Stan’s understanding of the soul-body relationship?
  • Can our identity be sustained until the final resurrection, even after the death of our bodies?
  • What is the “intermediate state” and how do different views of what the soul is explain what happens to the person during that state?
  • When we’re faced with end-of-life decisions for ourselves and others, what kind of questions should we ask?
  • How can we move from “hoping” in a future glory to acknowledging the bodily resurrection as a reality?
  • Why does an accurate understanding of the proper use of the body leads to flourishing?
