OK, let’s cut to the chase about CANCER:

When I was a boy, I heard about cancer… I knew it was a bad thing… but I don’t think anyone that I knew of ever actually had it.

Along came the “War on Cancer” – now, fast-forward fifty years or so, and pretty much everyone I know either has a family member with cancer, or has had cancer affect them directly in a dramatic way.

We are afraid, very afraid, of “The Big ‘C’,” and with good reason; but the reason is probably NOT what you are thinking.

First of all, we are naturally fearful of death. If we are Christians, the “edge” of that fear has been removed:

“Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.” – Hebrews 2:14-15

Nevertheless, in our humanity we still suffer from that fear. The problem is that, in our fear of death, we elevate “the fear of man” above our “fear of God.” What do I mean by that, you may ask?

God is the one who designed and created us, sustains us, and the one to Whom we ought to look first in all matters. We should have our minds saturated with the Bible and we ought to reflect on any and everything from that source as our primary “go-to” for information and decision making.

Sadly, as “captives in Babylon” our heads are filled with nonsense – idiotic notions implanted there by TV news, popular culture, magazines, things our friends and co-workers have said to us. In particular, when it comes to medicine and medical knowledge, we have elevated doctors to the status of god-hood, as demonstrated by the faith we place in them to deal with life and death matters. Is such faith justified?

The King of Babylon had a palace full of experts in all domains of knowledge; you may recall Daniel’s response to that “human wisdom” when they tried to change his diet?

“But Daniel resolved that he would not defile himself with the king’s food, or with the wine that he drank…  Then Daniel said to the steward…, “Test your servants for ten days; let us be given vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then let our appearance and the appearance of the youths who eat the king’s food be observed by you, and deal with your servants according to what you see.” So he listened to them in this matter, and tested them for ten days. At the end of ten days it was seen that they were better in appearance and fatter in flesh than all the youths who ate the king’s food. So the steward took away their food and the wine they were to drink, and gave them vegetables. As for these four youths, God gave them learning and skill in all literature and wisdom..” – Daniel 1:8-17 (excerpts)

We, likewise, ought to heed the wisdom of scripture even if it means discounting “doctor’s orders.” How do we make such a decision? Your doctor (who ought to “know better” having taken the Hippocratic Oath (“First, do no harm…”)) is prescribing noxious, deadly drugs that are very euphemistically called “chemotherapy.” These drugs are designed to intentionally destroy the very immune system God gave you to defend against cancer and other diseases! Hello!!! Does this make any kind of sense at all?

Well, yes it does — if you are a pharmaceutical company profiting in the millions of dollars off of the dying and treatment of each cancer sufferer.

I have lost all too many friends and loved ones to cancer, and the ones that have gone the quickest are the ones who ignored my pleas to reject the “wisdom” of their doctors…

Please, Dear Friend, before it is too late; please consider the marvelously designed body that God has given you! Please research the tools that God has provided to restore your health – the foods that heal, the herbs that can cleanse carcinogenic toxins from your system, the vitamins and minerals that can help to build up and strengthen your defensive immune system rather than tear it down!

Please have a serious look at these wonderful resources; do a little reading and a lot of thinking! Yes, I know that as a Christian you may be “ready to die,” but why go before your time? Don’t you still have some work to accomplish here?

Friend, I need you to “stick around” and keep me in line! So please, don’t “check out” early! :)
