Anne Graham Lotz Explains Why Cancer Is Not Necessarily a Punishment for Sin: “Sin Doesn’t Deserve Cancer, It Deserves Death, and Jesus Took That for Us On the Cross”

This year, about 268,600 women will receive a diagnosis of invasive breast cancer, along with 62,930 diagnosed with non-invasive breast cancer. And more than 2,000 men will also be diagnosed with the disease.

Sadly, some of those men and women will see this diagnosis as a punishment from God. But that’s simply not true, Anne Graham Lotz tells host Marti Pieper on the “Hope Through Cancer—Breast Cancer Awareness” series on Charisma News.

What does she say to those who face this disease and experience this crushing fear? The first thing the author, speaker and daughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham would do, she says, is make sure that person has a right relationship with God. And she says it’s never too late to do that.

“You have to turn to Him and come to Him at the cross and ask Him to forgive you and come into your heart, give you eternal life. And He’ll come into you in the person of the Holy Spirit, which is [my] new book, Jesus in Me, that the Holy Spirit is Jesus in you and in me.
