Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P26 (07-21-21)
What Is Faith?
Faith sounds like a churchy word, but have you ever pondered what that means? Is it faith in the mystical, the mystical body of Christ? Is it faith that God exists? What exactly is faith? A better question is in whom should you place your faith in for what really matters. If I know I am a sinner, and that sin is what caused my death, then not only do I need forgiveness of sins, but I need life, for sin is what caused my death. Who is the only person who can and did accomplish that for me? Who alone has already forgiven my sins and has offered me life?
Forgiveness cannot give eternal life. It can only be a necessary preparation for eternal life to be given. For if Jesus did not eternally take away the sins of the world, then eternal life could not be given, because the next time man sins he would die again. Only LIFE can give life, and the only person with life in His name, who has no sin of His own and who was raised from … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Have a Firm Foundation in the Truth of What Jesus Has Already Done!
Listen as Bob George explains the meaning of these passages in Hebrews that the immature in Christ, those without a firm foundation in what truth is, of what the gospel is, continue to stumble over. Oftentimes so many preachers, the legalists, do not want to teach grace, because if they did, then they cannot control you. For if you are controlled by grace, by the Spirit of God who lives in you, then you are not controlled by them. That is also why Bob George ministries is not on more radio programs because of this. Yet this message of truth, of the complete gospel, of total forgiveness, of being made complete in Christ, of growing in grace, must be told. As Jesus said that the truth is what sets you free. If that is so, then error is what binds you.
The passages in Hebrews that so many people fail to understand correctly are Hebrews 10:26-31, Hebrews 5:11- 6:3, Hebrews 6:4-6, and Hebrews 6:7-12. When you understand them correctly, then you will also … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Quit Sinning Against the Knowledge of Truth!
As Bob has said numerous times, all of us have been taught error from various denominational persuasions of men. The scripture that continually comes up in certain circles of Christendom is in Hebrews 10:26-31. People often think that to mean that if I do those dirty dozen or those nasty nine sins, deliberately, then I am going to hell. Many get fearful of this passage because they do not have proper understanding, because they do not understand what Jesus accomplished at the cross. People should be fearful, if they are sinning against the knowledge of the truth and after receiving the knowledge of the truth. The truth is people do not understand or realize he is talking about the sin of unbelief. He is talking about sinning against the knowledge of truth.
Now, if someone understands the truth, but deliberately and stubbornly says, “I do not care” and I am going back to the day of atonement or to my confessional booth to a priest to get my sins forgiven or as a Protestant quoting 1 John 1:9 to keep short … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P23 (07-14-21)
It is so important to understand what God Himself says is the gospel that saves. In 1 Corinthians 15, we read that it is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Nothing else. There is no baptism, church attendance, speaking in tongues, going to a confessional booth, seven sacraments, quoting 1 John 1:9 to keep yourself in fellowship, saved. Those latter things are things taught by the traditions of men. The word of God does not say such things. Your confidence in the gospel must be in what God Himself says it is, and that you have allowed the Holy spirit to reveal that truth to you. Your confidence must not be in the denominational persuasions of men, or what any pastor, priest or man says, for they could be teaching error.
So what did Jesus accomplish by his death on a cross? What did Jesus say after he gave up his spirit, after shedding his blood on a cross? It is finished. What is finished? Did not the author of Hebrews tell us that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin? Yes, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P22 (07-13-21)
Where is your confidence placed? Is it placed in our possessions? They could all be burned up in a fire. It could be here today and gone tomorrow. In your job? You could be fired tomorrow? You could be replaced by a smarter, younger employee, or a dictator could come to power and take all your land away. So what is the power of confidence we have who are in Christ Jesus?
Hebrews 10:32-39 32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. 33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. 34 You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. 37. For,
