We need the Word of God. I couldn't imagine my life without Jesus Christ. When I was eight years old I was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer. My father is a preacher and my mother very strong in her faith for Jesus Christ. Having faith was all they could do. The doctors told my parents that I had two years to live. My parents knew all they could do was pray and believe that God would heal me.

Chemotherapy was brutal! The pain I saw in my parent's eyes. I remember the doctors drawing bone marrow from me all the time. When I wasn't in the hospital I was wearing a plastic cup that was cut in half to protect my butterfly needle which was inside the top of my hand. Why would God let my parents go through this? To make them strong! To help them with their ministry!

To make a long story short, I am forty years old today. Yes, the doctors told my family I was going to die, but I am here today. Isn't God great? I will always live my life for him. He gave me everything! He gave me life, twice!

I have also turned my life over to the ministry. I am a preacher myself. That shows you the work of our savior. I have been ordained for 3 years now. Isn't life wonderful when you have Christ in it?

What about your life? What are you doing with your life today? You just don't know how many blessings you could receive. Life is much better with Christ. There is someone that gave his life for you that you may have eternal life. His name is Jesus! Ask him to come into your heart today!

How do you think we are here on this earth? Did we just magically appear? I know my God created me! If some people would just read the word of God they would know he is real. The Word of God is better than having all the money in the world. It gives yhou strength when you are weak.

First I'd like to say that I am happy to hear that you defeated this dreadful disease. That being said, If God Is responsible, why did you suffer through Chemotherapy? Does medical science get any credit?

The Problem Of Sin - If God is so Powerful, Why is there Sin?
If God is a just, omnipotent, omniscient, and loving God, He would not allow evil in the world. However there is evil in this world, thus God either does not exist, or is not just, omnipotent, omniscient or loving. This is the argument many non-believers cling to in their rejection…
