A Cure for Cancer

A man was advised by his doctor that he had cancer.  Naturally he inquired if there was any cure.  The doctor advised him that in fact there was medicine that would prevent him from dying of the cancer.  He would never die from the cancer, however he would continue to deteriorate.  “What kind of a cure is that?” retorted the man.  “I don’t want it.”

Of course such a “cure” is ridiculous. But how is this different from people who imagine they can be saved from the penalty for sin while they keep on living in it?

How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Romans 6:2

 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, Hebrews 10:26
