Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P57 (03-18-20)
God has come to live in us to will and to act according to His good purposes. When we insult a brother in Christ, we are really insulting Christ for whom Jesus died and rose again. He is a member of the body of Christ. Does it make sense to hurt your own body? No. So let us learn to encourage one another and do things that lead to peace and mutual edification. So God lives in us to form new attitudes of the heart. God deals with those things inside the heart that no one sees. Those wrong attitudes, if not corrected, is what leads to those outward actions that hurt one another.
God is our counselor. He is our teacher, our instructor. He renews our minds with truth. Truth is what displaces error, and if you have a critical spirit, then your mind needs to be renewed with truth. Do you not know you are a member of the body of Christ, and you are a part of the body? So why criticize the body? Why steal from your own body? Serve your body, and take care of your … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Listen as Bob George answers questions from various callers across the country.
A pastor said that in Deuteronomy 22:5 that it is sin for a woman to put pants on. Why would someone say that?
Deuteronomy 22:5 5 A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.
Whoever that guy is ought to get a life. Back in those days, men wore robes, which would be called like a dress, or floppy pants. What is he doing in Deuteronomy anyways? If he knew the Lord, he would be in the New Covenant. If the guy is lost, what is anyone doing listening to him, if he is lost. The last thing I would want to listen to is a lost pastor. People pick and choose verses they want to speak on and take it out of context. That happens quite often among those who are lost, devoid of spiritual understanding. They live by the letter of the law, and that kills and does not give life.

Listen today as Bob addresses the common questions that are still asked today. The practical issues people struggle with today are answered with the message of the totality of the cross, of being made complete in Christ by believing the complete message of the gospel.
There are questions that people in church ask, such as what about the unpardonable sin or falling away after hearing truth, as in an improper understanding of Hebrews, where people think they can lose salvation. There are questions asked, even church-going people, such as whether premarital sex is sin. There are questions people ask about the second coming of Christ, but are getting tripped up over simple things they have heard that are simply not true. People have either not come to Christ in the first place or have not grown in the Lord. Why is that? They do not take the time to allow the Holy Spirit to teach them truth through His word. The only way truth is revealed to men is through the Holy Spirit. Those without the Holy Spirit cannot discern the things of God.

How hard it is to grasp this concept of grace! When you are lost, you just cannot understand that there is nothing you can do to make yourself acceptable to God. But many believers also struggle with this concept of grace that is spoken of in the New Covenant that God ushered in after his death, burial and resurrection. Even your best efforts fall short. Why? You are striving in the energy of your flesh, and not living under grace.
The reaction that a lost person often has upon first hearing a message of grace is, “What do you mean there is nothing I can do to make myself acceptable to God? I have tried to obey the law.” A believer also does not always fully understand grace either. Often, upon reading God’s word, their mind is confused for awhile. They have not understood the words of Jesus in the Lord’s prayer, what Jesus said when he said, “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Often times, so many modern churches today co-mingle law and grace. That compounds the problem and hinders people from growing in grace. Recall in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Christ is the head of the church. But as people come to know Christ, they need to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. So a local body of believers is formed. It takes time to grow, and to protect the body of Christ, more mature believers, who have demonstrated by their life and conduct and their teaching that they correctly handle the word of truth, and are able to explain the meaning of God’s word, such men are appointed. Now, the role of each member of the body is to let the Lord teach them the meaning of the word of God, for it is really only the Holy Spirit who can reveal truth to men. And also because all men live in the flesh of ours, where sin dwells, often churches have a multiplicity of leadership, so as to guard and pray for one another.
Recall the shortcomings and struggles of the early church, so we can learn from that. The apostle Paul often asked for the prayers of the believers, that he would explain the gospel clearly as he ought. Yes, and there … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
