Classic Christianity – Call-In Bob George p393 (11-15-18)
Join Bob George as he takes calls from listeners on the original People to People radio program for over 30 years. Tedd called to ask about if it was okay to date a girl who is in Catholic Church and he belongs to a different Church. Bob answers by addressing Tedd’s lack of time reading God’s word and not knowing the scriptures. Someone who is a child of God will grow as they read and ponder over God’s word letting the Holy Spirit teach him. But, in case Tedd did not know the Lord, Bob explained the simple gospel message. He then provided a practical suggestion to help both him and his girlfriend to hear truth from scriptures. The second caller, Dale, heard a sermon by a preacher that cited Luke 15 as scripture supporting the concept of a believer being able to be in and out of fellowship with God. Although the caller did not agree with the pastor, he wanted clarification from Bob on the meaning of Luke 15. Bob graciously answered by explaining a common problem in people applying scripture by determining truth from human experience. The faulty logic … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John p10 (10-31-18)
Bob explains the gospel of good news by sharing numerous scriptures and discerning questions. He starts by sharing from 1 Corinthians 15:1-5, in regards to the necessity of Jesus death, burial, and resurrection, and asks the question, “What is the gospel?” He then shares examples of men who were quite successful in this world, but how futile their life is without Christ. He shares from the booklet he wrote titled “Born Free” that provides more details on the lives of these men and their tragic ending (https://bobgeorge.net/books-by-bob-george/born-free/). So man, without the life of Christ, tries to find meaning and purpose in occupation, worldly success, sexual encounters, friends, and all kinds of things, none of which fill the God-sized vacuum in their inner being. Man’s fundamental problem is that he is spiritually dead and in need of new life, God’s life.
God gave the first created man, Adam, the choice to depend on God for life. When one reads Genesis, one reads that he was told that if he should eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he will surely die (Genesis 2:17). Tragically, he chose … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Bob George continues teaching from the book of John, reminding people of the gospel that was preached to you. As believers, we have the wonderful privilege to share that same gospel message to others. He starts by sharing the mental roadblocks that prevents believers from sharing the greatest news ever. He reminds u again of how we would respond to truth when we were first lost in sin. Did we all accept the message upon first hearing? Some did. Others did not. So why do we not share? Sometimes we look to our insecurities, perceived lack of abilities in sharing truth, or even simply our fear of man in what they might think. Bob then shares some practical advice, from personal life experiences of God’s work in him, and finishes by sharing again what the gospel really is.
Bob George shares again the story of Jesus encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well and his testimony of how his unsaved preacher came to know Christ through a simple letter that touched his heart. Bob used the passage to explain how his friend, Charles Spurgeon, did not know God, but God knew … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Bob George, on People to People radio for over 30 years, answers questions by several callers. The first caller, Sam, asks about a Muslim and what happens when he dies and then about those who have never heard, even those in a remote place. Larry, the second caller, asks about what it means to take up your cross and follow Christ. The final caller for today, John, asks a specific question about Romans 8:17 in regards to what it means to suffer with Christ?
Sam, the first caller asks about a Muslim, born in a Muslim nation, where would he go when he dies, heaven or hell? Bob explains that all countries were Christian nations at one time, and how Muhammad converted people to Muslim religion. But the real point he made was that it is not about converting someone to a religion but converting someone to Christ. He then explains more thoroughly what Jesus Christ did, that is so unique and special that no religion really addresses, the condition of man in sin and the need to come to Christ for life. Truth revealed in scripture is what all men need to hear … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
