Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P26 (07-21-21)
What Is Faith?
Faith sounds like a churchy word, but have you ever pondered what that means? Is it faith in the mystical, the mystical body of Christ? Is it faith that God exists? What exactly is faith? A better question is in whom should you place your faith in for what really matters. If I know I am a sinner, and that sin is what caused my death, then not only do I need forgiveness of sins, but I need life, for sin is what caused my death. Who is the only person who can and did accomplish that for me? Who alone has already forgiven my sins and has offered me life?
Forgiveness cannot give eternal life. It can only be a necessary preparation for eternal life to be given. For if Jesus did not eternally take away the sins of the world, then eternal life could not be given, because the next time man sins he would die again. Only LIFE can give life, and the only person with life in His name, who has no sin of His own and who was raised from … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Have a Firm Foundation in the Truth of What Jesus Has Already Done!
Listen as Bob George explains the meaning of these passages in Hebrews that the immature in Christ, those without a firm foundation in what truth is, of what the gospel is, continue to stumble over. Oftentimes so many preachers, the legalists, do not want to teach grace, because if they did, then they cannot control you. For if you are controlled by grace, by the Spirit of God who lives in you, then you are not controlled by them. That is also why Bob George ministries is not on more radio programs because of this. Yet this message of truth, of the complete gospel, of total forgiveness, of being made complete in Christ, of growing in grace, must be told. As Jesus said that the truth is what sets you free. If that is so, then error is what binds you.
The passages in Hebrews that so many people fail to understand correctly are Hebrews 10:26-31, Hebrews 5:11- 6:3, Hebrews 6:4-6, and Hebrews 6:7-12. When you understand them correctly, then you will also … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P21 (07-12-21)
Turn to Hebrews 10:19-25. As you do so, ponder over all that the first ten chapters of Hebrews just got through telling you. If you have not read the book of Hebrews before, read it again and again in its entirety, asking the Spirit to teach you what it means. When you understand God’s love for you, what kind of response should that produce in you?
Have you come to understand you are a forgiven person, that all your sins were taken away by one act of God in sending His Son to die on a cross for you, and that while you were still enemies of God in your mind, He died for you. You came to the end of the law for righteousness, realizing the law put you to death so that you died to the law, so you can live under grace. There is no more sacrifice for sin. It is finished.
You realized you had no righteousness of your own, hopeless and spiritually dead to God. So you received what God came to give you, His life placed in you. You are washed. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
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
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P648 (07-02-21)
Listen as people call to get answers to their questions. Every now and then, you have a caller who asks, “What must I do to be saved?” or says “I am having doubts about my salvation.” Many people have doubts about their salvation for any number of reasons. And wherever you are right now, we all start out the same way, without the Spirit of God living in you. That is, we are all born dead spiritually and are in need of new life.
When you are reading the gospels, you are reading a record of the life of Christ while he was here on earth. What was his destiny? He came to die on the cross and give you and me eternal life in Himself. In order to do that, He had to prepare us and show us what our condition was. He had to show us we are sinners. If we do not see ourselves as sinners, what would the cross mean to me? He had to show us we are dead. If I did not know I was dead, why would I need life? The teachings in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
