Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P632 (05-07-21)
People in all backgrounds are looking for purpose and meaning in life, whether you were brought up in a religious background or were in the habit of rejecting God, calling yourself an atheist. But there comes a time where you realize that this yearning in your heart for acceptance and love is not working. In that process, you hear a message about Christ or you pick up a bible and start reading. There you learn that Christ is the answer all along.
As you are getting your mind renewed, you may be confused for a while, because, if you came from a religious background, you are beginning to wonder about what you had been taught. Things just do not make sense. A pastor commits adultery. That in itself is alarming to you, when he is supposed to be a believer, and believers are not supposed to do that,and certainly not a pastor, whom you are relying on. Another pastor is preaching about tithing. And you are not even sure if that is what you are supposed to be doing or not. The church you grew up in never mentioned tithing. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P631 (05-06-21)
People can grow up in any number of evangelical denominations and not really understand what salvation is, the meaning of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, what that really accomplished for mankind and for you personally. If you were to ask a person what salvation is, some will say it is a process you have to go through while others will say it is that Jesus died for my sins, and that is it. Others will even say you can lose your salvation. People who say such things do not know what salvation is. So to help a person, first you have to know what salvation is, what truth is as revealed by the Spirit of God from the scriptures. Then to engage the person in conversation, you might ask him, “What is your understanding of salvation?”
To a person who says salvation is “Jesus died for my sins”, and that is it, Bob often responds by saying, “That is your problem. You have got half a gospel. Let me explain to you. Do you want me to explain to you the fullness of the gospel?” The gospel … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P35 (04-27-21)
The bible is a unique book and it answers life’s most important questions. Who is God and what is He like? What does He expect from us? Who are we? Why are we here? It answers those age-old questions. In the word of God, you will also find the elements necessary to live above circumstances instead of being buried under them. The bible gives us counsel on how to get along with family and friends. And even how to get along with our enemies.
The bible is an autobiography of God, a study in human behavior. It is an historical account. It is a counselor’s manual, a textbook on life, and a looking glass into the future. It is a storehouse of riches. I think even more importantly it is a love letter from the Lord Jesus Christ.
When you have let the word of God speak into your heart to not simply know about God, as if just simply a book of information, but to intimately know God, then that transforms your life. The reality of a living God who loves you, who wants to … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Sometimes we can get off focus on what is really important in life, what God has called us to do in regard to being fishers of men, to reach out with love and truth for the souls of men. We can spend endless hours trying to figure out end time prophecies, and as interesting as that might be, the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Yes, we should read Revelation and not avoid it, but everything in proper perspective. God’s word certainly tells us that anyone who reads the words of the prophecy and takes it to heart what is written in it is blessed. So He certainly wants us to read it with that in mind. God wants us prepared but not scared.
Then there is our neighbor or relative who does not know Christ. If you got a call from a friend, who at one time in his life rejected God, or even mocked the things of God, but all of a sudden there is a change in attitude in him. He is being drawn by the Spirit of God, expressing to you an … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P30 (04-14-21)
As we live in this world today, how much more are you aware of the increased evil in our day, than even what was observed in Bob George’s time here on earth? Are you surprised by it? Should you be? Was the world ever our friend? So how are you responding to the difficult trials and tribulations you are facing today? How solid a foundation has been laid in Christ Jesus in your life?
Did Jesus warn you about the days ahead when he walked the earth, even about the events that are unfolding before our very eyes? Consider what was written down in Matthew 24 and 2 Timothy 3. What were His last words to us before ascending back to His Father, that we will be able to stand in the day of evil? Consider what He said in John 15 and 16. What was His prayer for us? Consider what He prayed in John 17. What did He give us, that if we grab a hold of that truth, and depend on Him, and believe His words, respond in faith, that we can rise … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
