Lord have mercy

Orthodox Christianity for Absolute Beginners

Someone near and dear to me has been diagnosed with a very invasive and aggressive cancer. They go to their first chemo appointment on Thursday.

It’s been a theological as well as physical struggle for them due to the false teachings of many modern churches that what Jesus did on the cross canceled out sickness, poverty, suffering and death. This is NOT biblical and yet these theological lies continue to permeate Christianity destroying people when they come against hard times because they have not learned the truth about such things.

For now, there is a great deal of hand holding, prayer, and tears in my life. It’s all ok because even better than all of that is the comfort and joy we receive through the Spirit of God. God walks us through the valley of the shadow of death, and we fear no evil for He is with us. Amen.

Lord have mercy.
