Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P639 (06-03-21)
A common question asked is in regard to the law. What is the law? Does it include the ten commandments as well as the dietary laws? Are those laws, particularly the ten commandments, a guide for us to live by? For Christians? Should believers be teaching people to obey the law? We all fall short of the law. We all have sinned. Can we ever be made holy by what we do? These are some of the most frequently asked questions.
First, what is the purpose of the law? Was the law ever added to make us righteous? According to the apostle Paul, no one will ever be made righteous by observing the law. It is through the law that we are conscious of sin. Why then was the law given? Paul even says the law is holy, righteous and good. But then he discovers that he is not righteous, and the law only stirred up sin in him. And that is the problem. The law is like a mirror. A mirror can show you there is dirt on your face, but a mirror cannot be used to remove the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Sometimes we get bogged down in our daily lives, being bombarded with legalism or teaching that just weighs us down. The day to day mundane things we do just seems to weigh us down at times. But to know that the time we ourselves get alone with the Lord, letting Him teach us the meaning of the word of God, and see the work God is doing in us. Then, as we simply share truth that has been revealed to us, that truth not only changes our own lives, but it overflows into the lives of others. That makes living so worthwhile.
Listen as Bob George shares with a young seminary student getting bogged down in his studies in theology that seems to distract him from being taught by the Holy Spirit. At times even, incorrect teaching is being told him, and he also feels this push towards legalism. Bob shares truth with him to help him to keep focused on being taught of the Holy Spirit. He reminds him of some basic foundational truths, on what salvation is, and clarification on the meaning of 1 John 1:9, and refers … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P15 (03-10-21)
The purpose of this lesson is to enable you and me to realize that the book we hold in our hands, both old and new, is a book that was dictated out of the very heart of God Himself. As we read about what the prophets wrote down, realize that they were dictated to them by God. We read that from the prophet Jeremiah 30:1-2, what he testifies where He got the words from. These words we read in the scriptures are of divine origin. With so much testimony, the conclusion to me is evident, that the scriptures we hold in our hands truly is from God.
We also have the testimony of the New Testament that would refer back to Old Testament people and events. That testimony itself gives validity to the fact that the New Testament writers believed the Old Testament scriptures came from God. And even more so, Jesus Himself quoted from the Old Testament scriptures, giving an analogy for spiritual truth for us to grab a hold of today. For example, do not fail to enter the Sabbath rest. There is now … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

It takes time to get wisdom, and that only comes by knowing God, spending time in His word, and learning to ask good questions. A home bible study, or a Zoom meeting with other believers, can be helpful for that. But the group meeting should be organized about the word of God, and focused on getting to know the author. This is not like a book study, where you get information, like you would a history or math book. In those kinds of studies, like you would study in college, you are not trying to get to know the author. You primarily just want to get a grade and a degree. Not so with the bible. You want to know a person, and by knowing that person of Jesus Christ, you get wisdom.
In this day of Coronavirus, with all these lockdowns and censoring going on, more and more people are beginning to see more readily that the church is not a building but people, people who are born again, who have Christ living in them. That is when two or more are gathered in His name, and Christ, being … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 432 (07-09-19)
Bob George continues where he left off in John 8. The Pharisees were unable to understand the language of Jesus. They had no room in their heart for truth. You either have the devil as your father or God as your Father. The devil’s desire is to steal, kill and destroy. The believer is set free from the clutches of the devil and is eternally saved. But the devil still speaks lies. He lies to us about our past, about our future, when we project such thoughts as if they are a reality today. So if you have resentment in your heart today, are you also worrying about tomorrow? Are you unable to let go of past resentments, hurts, insults or injuries? Is so, then you are believing a lie. Replace such error with the truth and the truth will indeed set you free. Let the words of Jesus renew you and set you free. Grab a hold of the truth and let His life be lived in you and through you. Many are trapped in emotional pain because they are dwelling on the past, projecting or fantasizing about the future. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
