Exodus 20:13

The Sixth Commandment "Thou Shall Not Kill" as taken from the King James Bible. Rev. Bacon looks at this command in the context of Bill C-14, an ammendment in Canada's criminal code to allow for assisted dying. In applying old testament laws to our modern lives, we must be careful to pay full respects to the context of scripture, take heed of reason, consider tradition, and understand the weight of lived experience when dealing with a decision that represents the ultimate in compassion.
