    I visit a man who is in his 70's and is terminally ill. He has recently been trading his pain medication for sexual favors from a prostitute. In my organization we have volunteer that do a variety of services from cutting hair to just sitting with a patient while their family can go to the grocery store and run errands and such. They provide much needed companionship and support.

    Here is my question: In this particular situation would it not be appropiate to enlist a volunteer prostitute (I know that is a contradiction in terms) to provide sexual favors so he can keep his pain medicine?

    Give me your thoughts.

    Don't contract out, if you are a true Christian you'll do it yourself.

    Christians hire missionaries to do their "dirty work." This could be a sacred calling.

    Sex is dirty.

    So what is your rejection of the idea of someone volunteering to give this guy one for the greater good?

    If you can get him a bedbuddy (your "volunteer prostitute" ) then it would definitely be a very good thing.

    He gets to keep his pain medication so he can die without pain hopefully. He gets a "relationship." The prostitute learns to practice charity.

    Christians don't care about pain. They only live to obey some superpowerful guy they think exists for no particular reason.

    Actually I think you will find that 99% of Christians will give thier reason as thier desire to get into heaven and avoid hell (Pain). They also hope to avoid death. Very few of them 'obey' but rather try to beg or buy thier way to thier goal.

    What about the pain of the prostitute? What if the prostitute were your daughter? What do you think that Christ would say to the prostitute or to the man in question?

    How demanding are his needs?

    Such scenarios could fall under some sort of community service scheme.

    Sure: the equivalent of placing a few drops of water on his scorched tongue. To put a man who had caught fire out of his misery, you'd probably shoot him in the head, too, right?

    What? Yes because finding someone willing to have sex with the guy so he doesn't keep spending his pain med money is the same as shooting someone.

    The point (and I do have one) is that situational ethics lend themselves to error.
