Cancer and the Christian

Friday, August 22, 2014

Guests: Jeff Schurrer and Tamara Windahl, Christ-Followers, Cancer-Battlers

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10).

The C-word.  Cancer.  The very thought of it makes most people shudder.  Over one million people are diagnosed with cancer each year in America—children, the elderly, and all ages in between.

There are many kinds of cancer that afflict almost every part of the body: lungs, skin, liver, brain, colon, prostate, and more.  Some of the causes of cancer are known (smoking, diet, environment), but much more is still unknown about this often deadly disease.  Worse, treatments for cancer can be as debilitating as the illness itself.

Cancer is a life changer … and for Christians, a real faith tester.  This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we are going to hear from Jeff Schurrer, who is currently in the throes of battling cancer, and Tamara Windahl, who survived several bouts with the disease.

How can we find strength and hope when we face the trial of cancer in our own lives?  How should we encourage others in the midst of their severe trial?  We will try to answer these questions and more this weekend as we discuss “Cancer and the Christian.”

TCW Minute: False Teachers (Aug. 18-24)

Why is it important to point out false teachers?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

In Peters’ second letter, he describes false teachers as those who secretly introduce destructive heresies, with many following and being exploited by them and the way of the truth being maligned.

It’s a grave mistake to look the other way when anyone twists Scripture, especially as it relates to primary doctrines such as God’s nature, the divine inspiration of the Bible, and the true gospel of Christ.  Too often we excuse drops of poison on these issues if the teacher speaks truth on other things or has an influential ministry.

Rather, let’s be like the Bereans, who examined the Scriptures daily to see whether the things they were hearing were true.

Hear about some prominent false teachers at TheChristianWorldview.org.

This weekend we’ll discuss the difficult trial of cancer.

5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders? 5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders?

1. Realize that no man and no ministry is infallible or beyond accountability.  “Celebrity Christians” are saved sinners like everyone else and are under the same standards of God as everyone else. 2. Learn from three or more sound teachers, not just one.  Avoid being a “fan” of just one man or ministry. 3. Prioritize being a part of your local church.  This is where God has designed us to be taught, have fellowship, take communion, and pray (Acts 2:41-41). 4. Be like the...

How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer? How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer?

1. Does the Bible say anything explicitly or by implicitly about the decision you’re facing? For example, the Bible is clear that a Christian should not marry a non-Christian.  (1 Corinthians 7:39 A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.) 2. Abide in Christ.   John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  In other words, the closer...
