Birdy 83: The Holy Appendix

Birdy 83

Of course you can’t be an organ donor. You’ll need them when Jesus comes back.

I was raised under a pretty extreme Evangelical theology, but somehow, I missed this crucial bit of doctrine until I applied for my driver’s license. It turns out learning the rules of the road came second to the care of the soul — and the body in the afterlife. My religious upbringing insisted the Rapture involves a physical resurrection or reassembly of the body, and if I donated my organs, I’d be putting the recipients at risk should Jesus return, because my donated parts would be taken from them to rejoin me in Heaven.
