Many people of faith will be distraught by the passage of Colorado Proposition 106 which makes assisted death legal under some circumstance. We continue to watch as man sets himself up to be God and control life and death. The book of Revelation paints a different picture of assisted death. The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, the Abyss opened and locust came down on the earth. “They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man. During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them” (Rev 9:4-6 NIV).
