Media @ New Hope CalgaryGod's often hopeful, time buying, sometimes life-saving, cancer butt-kicking presence via radiation therapy. What does the science in behind this field of medicine say about who God is?

"Radiation therapy is the clinical process that uses radiation for the treatment of a variety of diseases. The aim of radiation therapy is to deliver a very accurate dose of radiation to a well-defined target volume with minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissues, resulting in the eradication of the disease, the prolongation of life, and/or the improvement in the quality of life."
Jacob (Jake) Van Dyk, MSc, FCCPM, FAAPM, FCOMP, DSc (hon), Professor Emeritus, Departments of Oncology and Medical Biophysics, Western University, in The Modern Technology of Radiation Oncology, Page 2, Vol 1

“God knows what’s going on. He takes the measure of everything that happens.”
Hannah in 1 Samuel 2:3, MSG

“God’s perspective on all of this is way beyond ours.”
Professor Van Dyk on the phone this week

“Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.”
Psalm 139:6, NIV

“The interesting thing about radiation therapy… historically and still [now], is that is has involved people beyond the medical doctors; it has involved medical physicists, it has involved radiation therapists, and because medical physicists are effectively scientists, it’s had a much closer liaison with science and the science of medicine.”
Jacob (Jake) Van Dyk, Radiation Physicist Guy

“We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:12-13, MSG
