Is Cancer Caused by a Demonic Spirit?

It was a matter of life and death for me to find out the answer to the question, “Is cancer caused by a demonic spirit? Please understand. I had stage 4, inoperable cancer.

“Is cancer caused by a demonic spirit?”

The answer is NO.

Here’s why.

Many people today are healed from cancer without a demon being cast out

My mentor, Bill Henderson helped thousands of cancer patients overcome this misunderstood disease.. Bill used purely natural, yet proven alternative methods. The Bill Henderson Protocol is famous today for helping people to alkalize their bodies as a primary way to defeat cancer.

Spiritual giants have tried to heal cancer by faith alone–and generally failed

I was speaking at an international Ministers Conference in Mexico City in about 2019. At one of the sessions there was sustained prayer for ministers who had cancer. The prayers of faith were fervent. This was a highly Godly group of dedicated men and women. The men and women ministers offering the prayers were Spirit-filled. The recipients were also Godly people.

After the session, I met briefly with a couple of the leaders of the conference. I was grieved as I spoke, “You know that most of the pastors they prayed for are going to die.”

I could say this with knowledge because I had been recently healed from cancer. I knew that cancer was not caused by a demon. I knew that a lifestyle change was required for most of the men they had prayed for. You can get the Spanish edition of Answer for Cancer here.

I knew that toxins were a major culprit in the cancer battle. I knew that some simple lifestyle modifications were required to produce cancer healing.

My personal quest–I asked men gifted with deliverance ministry

When conventional medicine (chemotherapy) failed, I turned to alternative treatments. Eventually I started improving, but was bothered by the question, ” Is cancer caused by a demonic spirit?” If I had a demon, I wanted to be free from it and it’s effects.

So I asked several men that I respected, men who had a proven faith or deliverance ministry. Not one could spot a demon in my condition. Finally, I asked one minister. He prayed over me and announced with such authority and finality, “No, you do not have a cancer demon.” I never asked again.

So What Causes Cancer?

Toxins. Environmental toxins. Dietary toxins. All sorts of toxins overload our immune system and cause 90 to 95% of cancers.

The WHO (World Health Organization classified outdoor air pollution as a leading cause of cancer in humans. “The air we breathe has become polluted with a mixture of cancer-causing substances,” said Kurt Straif of the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). “We now know that outdoor air pollution is not only a major risk to health in general, but also a leading environmental cause of cancer deaths.”

A President’s Cancer Panel issued a landmark report suggesting that public health officials have “grossly underestimated” the extent of environmentally-induced cancer among the 1.5 million Americans diagnosed with the disease annually. A significant number of annual cancer deaths in the U.S. are caused by environmental pollutants and occupational exposures; lower-income workers and communities are disproportionately affected by these exposures (American Cancer Society, Facts and Figures, 2006).

My book, Answer for Cancer lists many of the toxins in common cosmetics, processed foods, herbicides, pesticides, etc. that are in our homes, food, workplaces and air.

No, cancer is not caused by a demonic spirit. Regardless of the cause, God can lead to the healing solution. What He did for me, He can do for you.

Why is this “demon myth” so dangerous?

Because it does not go to the root of the problem. To think cancer is caused by a demonic spirit is similar to popping a pill. It assumes “if I just get rid of the demon, I don’t have to do anything else.” This myth deceives sincere believers into thinking they don’t have to make any changes in lifestyle. As a result, they die.

Almost all cancer healing requires a lifestyle change.

Please do not misunderstand. I am not saying demons cannot or do not affect cancer. Maybe someone needs a spirit of laziness cast out so they will exercise more. Maybe someone needs a spirit of overeating or gluttony cast out. What we eat does affect cancer. But to think cancer is caused by a demonic spirit is fallacy.

To cure cancer, we have to go to the root of the problem. Several years ago, a Godly and influential minister in our city was diagnosed with brain cancer. Many church people prayed earnestly for him. I didn’t know how to help him at that time. Apparently, he made no lifestyle changes. When he died, people mourned. But his death affected the faith of many. It discouraged people. “Why pray, if God doesn’t answer?” they reasoned.

Take heart, Everyone! Cancer is curable. For starters, let’s let go of the myths. There is hope for all.
