Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P525 (04-02-20)
These are the common questions that people ask today when people do not understand the grace of God, the finality of the cross and being made complete in Christ. People have called in because they are burdened down by what they have been taught as far as what they should be doing as a Christian. Many are taught they should tithe for they have heard they would be robbing God if they do not or that they would be missing out on a blessing. Others are incorrectly taught that they must confess their sins, or repent of their sins before God, as in Revelation 2 or 1 John 1:9, when they sin, due to a faulty understanding of what repentance is and what it means to live under the grace of God as a child of God. Others are incorrectly taught that you must only take of the Lord’s supper in a worthy manner, and to eat only until you have confessed your sins to God. Others are told you must get busy for Jesus, not knowing what it means to rest in Christ and abide in Him. Others are … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Listen as Bob George answers practical questions in the world today, about Christian psychology, excuses of men, and turning your back on God, false converts, false teachers, denominational creeds or persuasions rather than the truth of the word of God, and what is it that Jesus spoke about in the sermon on the mount. Bob addressed in more detail why Jesus came to earth, what his mission was, and why Jesus taught what he taught as someone born of a virgin, under the law, to fulfill the law and to uphold the law for us. I thought this was worth repeating so I will quote what Bob had shared.
Bob: Most people do not understand the purpose of why Jesus taught on this earth. He taught because he was headed to a cross to bring salvation. His teaching prior to salvation did not bring salvation. It identified the condition of man and therefore prepared them for salvation. His goal was the cross and the resurrection. He went to the cross to take away the sins of the world and then the resurrection to bring life from the dead, to bring … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Listen as Bob counsels with a person who is on the verge of divorce. The focus is really on a heart problem, not a marriage problem. The goal is not to get back married but to find out what truth is so reconciliation can take place. That is the counsel Bob gave. Listen as Bob explains several passages of scripture in detail. Another issue he also addressed was law and grace. What was the attitudes in the scriptures for? Was it so we can live up to those standards? No. That is impossible for man to do. The key to living is to first become born again and then learn to allow the Lord to teach you what it means to let Him live His life in you and through you. When you are born again, you are a child of God. The attitude of your heart is to love God, to know what the Lord desires. When you know experience the love of God, you are not seeking to destroy one another.

Several callers called to get advice. These questions vary from practical advice on sharing truth with people, to questions on clarification of what a passage in scripture means, and even about why you are facing depression when trying to fulfill a life-long dream you have in making a living in what you really enjoy doing.
How do you share truth with someone who just always wants to find reasons to find things to debate you on? How do you talk to people who have knowledge on various books that conflicts with what is written in the scriptures, or about information missing during the early years of Christ, or about all religions being equally valid?
What does it mean in 2 Peter 2 or in Hebrews 6 about a dog returning to its vomit or a person being enlightened and now he is worse off than he was before? How do you deal with life where people are into all kinds of denominations but they do not have the same doctrine?

Many questions can be answered once you really understand what salvation is, what the complete gospel is, what biblical repentance unto salvation is, and that there is a New Covenant of grace we are now living in. Salvation is being saved from the consequences of sin, which is death, by the gift of God, which is the resurrected life in Christ Jesus. There is an Old Covenant of law that has been set aside. The Jews were under that system of law. The Gentiles never were. But all were under sin, and know right from wrong, conscience bearing witness to that. The real issue is not sins anymore, since Jesus took all the sins of the entire world upon himself, so God will never see sins again. Yes, sin caused our death, for the wages of sin is death, but the issue really is that man is spiritually dead and in need of life.
Understand also that the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John really belong in the Old Covenant, since those books are about the life of Christ Jesus on earth. The New Testament was ushered in only … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
