Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P24 (11-09-22)
Belief in Jesus is Not the Same as Faith in Jesus
~ “But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,” John 2:24
~ “Jesus said, If you hold on to my teaching, you really are my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set me free. Now, you see, here were some people who said it says that they believed him. But the issue is, do they really believe him? And we have to be cognizant of the fact that every place that it states that someone believed did not mean they were a believer. It says that in second chapter of John, it talks about that they saw the miracles he did and believed, believed in his name. But it says Jesus didn’t entrust himself to them. You saw Simon, the sorcerer who they said, believed and then tried to buy the Holy Spirit. Well, you see, what is that was people say, Yeah, I believe he can do something for me. And we all function to that, what have you done for me lately? So when it … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P4 (11-16-21)
The Wages of Sin is Death, But the Gift of God is Life
Most pastors are teaching a half gospel. Many teach that a person “gets” their sins forgiven when they ask God for it. Yet without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (Hebrews 9:22). Jesus forgave your sins on the cross so that He would give you life, His eternal life when you place faith in Him. Forgiveness is found only in Christ Jesus. No one gets their sins forgiven today apart from Christ Jesus. The only thing a person can do is receive His forgiveness when you receive Him and He gives you eternal life the moment you place faith in Him.
Romans 5:9-11 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P20 (07-07-21)
Have you understood what faith is? Faith must have an object. It is more than an intellectual assent to facts or some sort of faith in some mystery, that nobody knows what that mystery is. I can know that Abraham Lincoln died in Ford’s theater and by believing that, that does not have any impact on my life. I can even go to church, thinking that if I go to church then somehow God will accept me, or my good deeds will outweigh my bad. I can think that I can get all my sins confessed that built up during the week off my chest. I could be doing that whether I was going to a Catholic mass or even sitting in my own bedroom quoting 1 John 1:9, but all the while wondering if I missed confessing some sin. I could even think that I came to Jesus to get all my sins forgiven, and then still doing those confessing of sins as well. So it could be I did not have a proper understanding of the complete gospel in Christ Jesus. All of that is … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Thanksgiving Law & Grace P3 – Bob George (11-27-20)
Let us reflect on Christ and be thankful. When we ponder all that we have in Christ, how can we not be thankful? At Thanksgiving we can reflect on our nation, but what I really rejoice in is that I have been set free in Christ. To ponder over the wretched state of death I was once in, so miserable that I cried out to God for help, and He rescued me. He led me to new life in Christ Jesus. And today, I rejoice that that same grace that saved me then is the same life that continually saves me now.
I thank Him for renewing my mind, encouraging me and knowing that when I do sin, I am not condemned. Why? I am no longer under the law of sin and death. All the judgment and punishment for sin was placed on a cross so there is none left for me! And I am so grateful that I am under grace. He supplies everything I need to live. I can rest in Him, although realizing that on this earth I will still sin, never going to be in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
