I was asked not to post anymore in a "Baptist Only" area because I don't currently attend a Baptist church (though I was raised in a Southern Baptist Church), so I thought I would ask this question here. I had asked in the other forum, "What would you do / how would you pray" if you were diagnosed with terminal cancer? One person said this: I asked if this would be a Biblically-correct (sound doctrine) prayer: "Dear Lord, you know I have terminal cancer. They say I'm going to die. I don't want to die from this, Lord, I want to be healed. Please heal me, if it be your will. In Jesus' name, Amen.".....to which someone replied Now, I believe that just as I want the best for MY child (health, happiness, prosperity, etc.), God wants the best for me because I am HIS child. I have a hard time understanding that it could really be God's will that I have terminal cancer (I don't, by the way.) But, obviously, many people here DO believe that it could be God's will for them to be sick. Here's my question: If you have cancer (or any other sickness or disease), and you really believe that it could be God's will that you have this sickness.....then why would you dare go to the doctor and try to be cured? Aren't you taking a chance of angering God by doing something that is totally against His will?
