Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P548 (06-26-20)
Today’s callers asked for help in regard to marriage issues and even about how to quit smoking. A lady called on behalf of her older sister who is seeing another man. Another person asked for clarification on a passage of scripture in regards to a passage in regard to adultery and marriage in Matthew 18:8-10. A person called about clarification on a passage of scripture, in Colossians 1:21-23, that seemed to indicate you could lose your salvation, even though he knows you cannot. Then there was this question that you still her quite often today, “Is a Catholic a Christian?”
Many of the questions these callers asked can easily be answered when, first of all you have the Spirit of God living in you, and you know the difference between the old covenant of sin and death, before the cross, and the new covenant of grace, after the cross, that we are under today. So when Jesus is saying things in the gospel of Mathew, Mark, Luke or John, he is saying things to people living under an old covenant, and the new has not yet come.

Listen to how heart-breaking it is when believers are caught up in sin, but even more so when they are not approached in grace, but rather with condemnation. God instructs us to come with an attitude of restoring a brother who is caught up in sin, to come in an attitude of humility and grace. Listen as Bob explains the scriptures in Genesis, of Noah’s drunkenness, and his sons response to that, of Jesus teaching in Matthew, of taking at most two or three witnesses, and that only after the person refused to repent and who remained proud and in rebellion, of Jesus gracious response to the woman caught in adultery, and Paul’s instruction to us in Colossians, and the example of Paul to the brother who boasted of having sex with his father’s wife, how that was necessary to protect the body from infection.
Listen to Bob share with a father whose daughter is a lesbian, who is flaunting that sin, and wanting to bring her lover home with her. Bob shares truth in scripture that that is sin, and to not flaunt that sin in front of me … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

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?
Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P55 (03-16-20)
There is nothing we can do to make ourselves acceptable to God. Now that is difficult to grasp by many people. Why is that? Is it because they do not know what sin really is or what righteousness really is? Most people tend to evaluate themselves next to how other people are doing. After all, they say, “I never murdered anyone one like Adolf Hitler”. They see sin in categories, where actions are greater than attitudes, committing adultery is worse than lust or murder is worse than anger or jealousy. Many view sin as a numerical counting system, where adultery gets you 10 points, stealing 9, and the other things we do a lot more of, such as lying, gets you one or two points. So many people think as if God grades on a curve, that somehow if your good outweighs your bad, then you will make it into heaven.
But that is not how God operates. God is so holy he cannot look upon sin. Sin is defined as anything that does not come from faith. The attitudes of the heart are treated just as if you committed the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Various callers ask specific questions, such as what does it mean to be born again, about prophesies of Isaiah and Jeremiah, about the millennial reign for the church; the latter rain and the coming glory of the church. The last caller asked if a woman can be a deacon. Listen as Bob answers these questions.
The following is a synopsis of the first caller, answering the question of what it means to be born again. Listen to the audio if you have interest in what Bob shared from scripture in regards to the other callers’ questions. Being born again is the most vital question that must be understood properly.
A person called because he wanted to know what it means to be born again. He was raised Roman Catholic, and was a practicing Roman Catholic most of his life. But now he has been going to a non-denominational Christian church for many years now. That is where he heard about being born again. He wants to be assured of what that means. When he listens to Christian radio, he hears different things. Some pastors preach that people who think they … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
