Featuring: Larry Jones

Published: June 9, 2018

Minister Larry Jones has a passion for God and people. So when Larry was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013, he did the only thing he knew how to do: “FACE THE FACTS” and believe God. Join the hosts as they chat with Larry about how truly living by faith in the face of illness does not equate to denial, and that the good news is the “FACTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.”

Show Notes:

Minister Larry Jones doesn’t pull punches when it comes to the truth. Diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013, Larry had just gotten married, and wasn’t about to accept what was before him: “It was something else as far as me accepting [cancer], first of all,” he says. “What do I do? Am I gonna die? No, I’m just gonna believe God. I’m gonna just deny the fact. And that’s one thing we can’t do. God can’t do anything if we deny the fact.”

Taking ownership of his diagnosis helped Larry to move forward by faith and realize that God was planning to use him through every step of his cancer journey. He says it’s especially important for people of faith to realize that God works in and through people’s lives in various ways: “I have seen and heard individuals struggle with ‘I’m a man/woman of faith and power. I don’t need a doctor.’ And they suffer terrible consequences because they confused the idea of walking by faith and doing nothing from the natural perspective.”

Being a minister and a patient in a cancer environment was the paradigm shift that brought clarity to Larry’s purpose. “When I got here [Cancer Treatment Centers of America], I felt spirituality here. I felt God here. I told my wife, ‘It feels like being in church.’”
