Theology of the Body: Seeing Medicine as a Gospel Imperative
Most Christians today readily understand that the Gospel of Christ relates to our hearts, our spirits, our souls and even our minds. But many are at a loss when it comes to the body! Yet the message of the New Testament is clear that the Gospel has huge implications for how we think about and treat our bodies. Pope John Paul II and others in recent years have been challenging the global church to rediscover the importance of our bodily existence here on this earth and the implications this has for life and ministry. This workshop aims to highlight what the Bible teaches about the body and specifically to focus on the implications of this truth for Christians in the medical profession.
