Guest: Dr. David Jeremiah
In 1994, Dr. David Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Ministries, was diagnosed with cancer. While he wasn’t afraid of dying, he was afraid for his family and their future. On today’s edition of Family Talk, the author of When Your World Falls Apart, recounts his health journey with Dr. Dobson and the role that faith played in his recovery. During times of pain and disillusionment, Dr. Jeremiah believes the church needs a theology of adversity. The Christian life does not guarantee smooth sailing, but King David reassures us in Psalm 46, that "God is our refuge and strength."
In a poem by Helen Steiner Rice, she wrote, "Sometimes we come to life's crossroads, and we view what we think is the end. But God has a much wider vision. He knows that it's only a bend." On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. David Jeremiah and Dr. James Dobson use the poet’s words to illustrate the mystery of faith. Dr. Jeremiah, who battled reoccurring cancer, staunchly refutes the belief that Christians won't and should not experience pain and suffering. Whether you’re facing cancer, divorce, broken vows, or a prodigal child, remember that God’s grace is truly sufficient for every need.
