How would each religion interpret the nature of George’s malady and  suffering? I

The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you  into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for  knowledge and acceptance of a diversity of faith expressions.

The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative ethical  analysis of George’s situation and decision from the perspective of two  worldviews or religions: Christianity and a second religion of your  choosing. For the second faith, choose a faith that is unfamiliar to  you. Examples of faiths to choose from include Sikh, Baha’i, Buddhism,  Shintoism, etc.

In your comparative analysis, address all of the worldview questions  in detail for Christianity and your selected faith. Refer to Chapter 2  of Called to Care for the list of questions. Once you have  outlined the worldview of each religion, begin your ethical analysis  from each perspective.

In a minimum of 1,500-2,000 words, provide an ethical analysis based  upon the different belief systems, reinforcing major themes with  insights gained from your research, and answering the following  questions based on the research:

  1. How would each religion interpret the nature of George’s malady and  suffering? Is there a “why” to his disease and suffering? (i.e., is  there a reason for why George is ill, beyond the reality of physical  malady?)
  2. In George’s analysis of his own life, how would each religion think  about the value of his life as a person, and value of his life with ALS?
  3. What sorts of values and considerations would each religion focus on  in deliberating about whether or not George should opt for euthanasia?
  4. Given the above, what options would be morally justified under each religion for George and why?
  5. Finally, present and defend your own view.

Support your position by referencing at least three academic  resources (preferably from the GCU Library) in addition to the course  readings, lectures, the Bible, and the textbooks for each religion. Each  religion must have a primary source included. A total of six references  are required according to the specifications listed above. Incorporate  the research into your writing in an appropriate, scholarly manner.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA  Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is  required.
