Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P580 (10-16-20)
Truth is so important to grab a hold of so you can walk in the way God intended. On today’s program, two callers called, that highlight how when truth is not understood or grasped, you are unable to walk in the new life God has given you. There are those people who will not think it worthwhile to hold onto truth, and have been deceived by the thinking of the world, and are lost. Sometimes people call in on behalf of a son or daughter or granddaughter who has been ensnared, and are asking for counsel in how to reach their loved ones with truth. Then there are those who have not quite grasped what salvation is, and because of their faulty thinking, such as the fear of losing salvation, they are unable to walk in true freedom.
Glenn asked a simple question but really opened up to expose a more serious problem in his belief system. For many years he was enslaved in fear and depression over guilt over a past sin of fornication. Bob graciously helped guide him to truth so he could walk in new freedom.

Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P579 (10-15-20)
The older you get, you will be at a funeral of a mother or father or close friend. That is a part of life. That was not God’s design for people to die. That came about when the first created beings sinned, and so sin and death entered the world.
But, God, out of His deep love for us, provided a solution so that we can be raised to new life in Him. If you grasp the depth of His love for you, of His taking away your cause of death, called sin, then you can appreciate the cross. For you realize how depraved and hopeless you are, and have come to grips that not only are you a sinner, but you are separated from your creator, who loves you so much. When you realize He died to take away your sins, and then rose again so you can freely come to Him, to receive new life, His life you were unable to live. You accept the life in Christ Jesus that is full of joy and peace and patience and kindness. You respond to that and receive Him, His … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

The Lord said to us so we have the privilege of choosing to let Him live His life in and through us. But we also have the choice not to do so, but it would make no sense to do so. We are no longer under the law but under grace. That does not give us a license to sin, for we can do that without the law. Indeed, the law is what stirs up sin. But under grace, when you are truly born again, you have this attitude of gratitude, of the deep mercy and mercy of God towards you ,that you are compelled to live in the new way of the Spirit, who lives in you.
So God called us to be sanctified, to be set apart from the world, for His good purposes. But, when we are not thinking correctly, having errors in our heads, we need to be renewed with truth. For Jesus said that the truth will set you free. Oftentimes, what trips us up is circumstances that come to us all, trials and tribulations, that if our mind is off of Christ and onto … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P66 (09-16-20)
As we think of attitudes of heart that God wants to form in us, think about the attitude in Christ Jesus, who said, “Not my will but your will be done” and so he proceeded to carry out the will of the Father, which was to sacrifice himself on a cross to take upon the sins of the whole world. Now, that is contrary to the desire of the flesh that wants to save our lives. Recall the words of Jesus to us, “What good is it to gain the whole world and yet forfeit your soul?“ or “Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for my sake will save it.”
Our flesh does not naturally want persecution, hardships and trials, yet we know they will come and we know the things the Lord told us about concerning end time events, and the birth pains we must endure. So when we pray, do we pray like Jesus, and say, “Lord, I know what I want to happen, but Lord, it is not my will that I want. You know … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P65 (09-15-20)
As we read in Philippians, concerning the attitude in Christ Jesus, there are three basic attitudes that God wants to form in us, the attitudes of servitude, humility and dependency on the Father. When we come to Christ by faith in his death, burial and resurrection for us, we are on the starting line, where for the very first time the Spirit of God is placed in us. The mind of Christ is what we now have, to discern the things of God.
We need the mind of Christ so that our minds can be renewed with truth to replace the error of the world, the philosophies and the thinking of the world that has kept us in bondage and is contrary to the life God has given us. We are instructed to renew our minds with the new mind God has freely given us, to be able to walk in the new life. We have this option to participate in the divine nature. We are to have this attitude that if not for the grace of God, there go I.
