Do you or someone you know have a disability? Is it really a disability? The world tries to dictate normality to us, but not everything we call a disability is. However, no disabilities are a result of the sin of the parents. In this week’s question, I explain why.

But we won’t do any of this if we don’t know what this spiritual cancer is or how subtle and destructive it is.
