Why Does God Give People Cancer?

Cancer is probably the disease people fear most. Many Christians believe “God has a plan for your cancer” and that God either actively causes some people to get cancer of at least allows them to get it. Many Christians believe that God gives people cancer to punish them.

Those beliefs can be upsetting, especially if you or a loved one has cancer. Why did God bring this on you? Why did He allow it? Why doesn’t He stop it?

In this podcast, we examine the belief that God either causes or allows cancer. We start where Christians should always start–with the things Jesus said and did in the Gospels.
