Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P480 (10-10-19)
Bob received calls from several listeners, answering questions in the world today as well as the practical issues. Bob explains the gospel message and applies that to the practical problems people face today. Bob addresses the practical issues of life, such as anger issues stemming from fear, marital problems, and living in freedom from religious tradition, by the practical message of the gospel, Christ in you, the hope of glory. We are born dead and in need of life. That is not a religious thing. That is a very practical message God came to bring to man through new life in Christ Jesus.
The reason Gloria is struggling in marriage is because she is unequally yoked to a non-believer who does not have any indication he is willing to live with her, being adamantly opposed to the message of Christ Jesus and is abusive to her. God’s word provides instruction to a believer that he has freedom to leave a non-believer to live in peace. God wants us to live in peace. Yet, if a non-believer is willing to live with you, is not opposed to you being a Christian … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 77 (09-25-19)
In the gospel of John, near the end of Jesus life on earth, Jesus is providing comfort and instruction to his disciples. He tells them he is going away. Because he tells them that they are filled with grief. But he is explaining that he will send them the Holy Spirit, who will live in them and be in them forever. They are not able to understand these things, and Jesus told them that. The reason that they could not understand is because it is not until Pentecost when they receive the Holy Spirit.
That is true of all us until we are born again. It is like putting a jigsaw puzzle together. You know what a piece of the puzzle looks like real well, maybe 4 or 5 pieces together. But until you put the whole puzzle together, you are missing something. The Holy spirit will lead you and guide you into all truth. God wants us to be born again, and start with the milk of the word. All of us have to start out that way. But then grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 76 (09-24-19)
Bob George continues sharing from the 16th chapter of John. Jesus came to speak truth into the hearts of men. Sadly, even today, not everyone receives truth. The Jews today deny Jesus is the Messiah. They rejected him as the promised Messiah, whom the prophets told was to come into this world to take away sins. Most Jews today do not even know the bible. They hardly know anything except the Passover and things you celebrate, but nothing about Moses, yet they all agree that Jesus is not God. You have the Muslims who would rather believe Mohammad over the words of Jesus, and even think they are doing a service to God by killing Jews and Christians. You have the atheist, who is a fool, saying there is no God. You have the mystics who say that truth does not really matter. “Just love one another”, they say, yet fail to realize that it is impossible to love perfectly as God demonstrated His love to us. Then you have the Catholics, who would rather trust their traditions and what the pope has to say, who deny the finality … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 75 (09-23-19)
Briefly turn to the 15th chapter of John. Then we will continue in the 16th chapter. Recall Jesus is talking to his disciples, close to the end of his life on earth, heading to a cross. He is telling them about his going away and that it is better that he goes away. There are many things Jesus taught them over these three years with them but they were not understanding. The disciples would ask, “Why are you going away?” and “How can it be better for us that you are going away?” They were not able to understand. They were filled with grief, not able to bear what Jesus was telling them.
Jesus is comforting them and providing instruction concerning difficult times ahead but also providing hope of a future, of peace that surpasses understanding. He tells them that a time will come that they will be kicked out of the synagogue. He does not want them to have unrealistic expectations of the future. But he also tells them that when he goes away, he will send the Holy Spirit to be in you and to be … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P475 (9-20-19)
Ernest from Strausburg, PA
Ernest: I have a quick question on 2 Timothy 2:12.
2 Timothy 2:12 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us;
Ernest: What does that mean?
Bob: A person who denies Christ, Christ denies them. He accepts our non-acceptance. You say you do not want anything to do with God. Then He says that He will not have anything to do with you either. It would be like a person who says, “I do not want to be around this person”. Then he says, “I do not want to be around you then”. (Of course, God is patient and waiting for a person to change their mind, longing to be gracious to him.)
Bob: Now talking about Christians. If you are faithless, then he will remain faithful for he cannot disown Himself. When you come to Christ, you have not denied Him because you came to Him by faith. But you can be faithless, that is, you can choose to not continue to walk by faith. In the midst of that, He will remain faithful … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
