Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P37 (07-13-20)
We are continuing in our study on Faith, Hope and Love. Now, in regards to belief and faith, they are different. Belief is based on what is in your head, information, but faith is what you put in your heart, a conviction you live by, and is based on truth. Belief is memorizing something, and even talking about it, but it would be like a parrot merely repeating what it heard. Now faith is a conviction of the heart, with solid convictions formed in you. Faith produces attitudes of the heart. You can place your faith on either a faulty foundation or a firm foundation. If you see a broken chair, you know it will not hold you up. If you see a solid chair, you can place your faith by sitting down on that chair. Your faith is made evident by your action. You live by your faith, the firm convictions and attitudes formed in you by what you know to be true, and are persuaded of and convinced of.

Listen as Bob explains the difference between law and grace and about the New Covenant we live under today. When we understand the truth of what Christ Jesus has accomplished for us, that we are no longer under the law of sin and death but under grace. We are now under the law of life in Christ Jesus. By understanding such spiritual truths, we can answer some of the common questions that keeps tripping people up.
Should we confess our sins to God? Yes, to agree with God as to it being wrong, and as a child of God so you may learn truth that will set you free, and so you can walk in faith. But to ask God to forgive you of your sins is not walking in faith. That is asking God to do something He has already done. He will not go back to a cross to shed his blood all over again. To ask God for forgiveness when in Him you already have it is insulting Him and is like exposing him to public disgrace all over again. We are to worship God in Spirit … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P502 (01-10-20)
One common question that gets asked quite often is about how the law of Moses applies to us today. Well, if you are a lost person, then it still applies to you to lead you to Christ, for that is the purpose of the law. The law was added so man might recognize he is a sinner, and then understand his condition of death to God, so that he might to Christ to receive new life. Otherwise, the cross of Christ has no meaning to him. The law of Moses was written on stone and is a ministry of death and condemnation. That is, the law is like a mirror, to tell you what your problem is. Although it was glorious, though fading, it does not compare to the glorious ministry of righteousness that Jesus gives to those who are born again.
For those who have been born again, the law of Moses does not apply. None of it. Not the ten commandments and not the ceremonial laws or any other laws. Why? You are no longer under the law of sin and death, but you are now under grace, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P25 (01-06-19)
We are continuing our study of Romans. We are currently in the 6th chapter of Romans. Here in chapter 6, Paul is explaining the law of sin and death in contrast to the law of life in Christ Jesus. All of us were born under the law of sin and death. We had been deceived into thinking we can be righteous by observing the law. But the more we tried to obey the law, we come to know we cannot obey it completely or perfectly. So we decide to pick and choose which ones we think we can obey. Well, I can attend church on Sundays. I can stop saying certain bad words, or at least not smoke in church. Yet, if we were are intellectually honest with ourselves, we would realize that the law can only make us conscious of sin.
Paul goes on to explain the purpose of the law. The law was added so man can recognize he is a sinner, and recognize his condition of death, death to God called spiritual death, in order that he might seek a Savior. When one considers that the wages … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Bob George discusses insights on the subject of the law from God’s word. In part one of this three part series, Bob addresses the law of love. Bob explains how Jesus fulfilled all of the entire Old Testament, including the 10 commandments but also all the of the Law, the Pentateuch with all its ceremonial laws also, and the prophets and the psalms. Jesus is God in the flesh and God is love and love is the fulfillment of the law. God poured out His love into our hearts when we were born again, a new spiritual birth where the Holy Spirit was placed in us. So, we are not under the law (singular), as described in the Old Covenant with the Jews, but we are under grace, under new laws of love with only two commands, to love God and to love your neighbor as yourself, and neither of these are listed in the 10 commandments. Bob explains further from the book of Hebrews this contrast between the Law (singular) of the Old Covenant to laws (plural) of the New Covenant. Bob checked the uses of these words and they … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
