God’s Delight

In a recent oped in the New York Times, Dr. Jarle Breivik, a professor of medicine at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences at the University of Oslo, argues provocatively that “we won’t cure cancer.” The three-time doctor who has spent his life studying the development of human cancers argues, “We are essentially temporary cell colonies evolved to relay life to the next generation, and as long as we are human, there will always be another cancer.”

Now if that is true, then why should anyone do cancer research? And more to the point for us who are believers, why should Christians do cancer research—or, for that matter, care about education or public policy or the arts? Do we have a good answer to that question?

Today’s passage points the way.

Title: God’s Delight

Text: Isaiah 62
