Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P573 (09-24-20)
Believers, of all walks of life, ages and various circumstances of life, problems common to all, call in to get advice and answers and clarity of understanding. You grow up hearing things all your life and you begin to hear different things from various people, denominations of churches or people, and something just does not seem right to you, but you are not sure where to look or find the answers to life you are looking for. Sometimes you hear a teacher explain things, and that can help, if he has grown in the Lord himself for some time and has learned from the Holy Spirit so he can pass onto you what can be of help to you. But ultimately, you have to get into the scriptures yourself for the Lord to teach you, so you can test and affirm what anyone says is true. The Holy Spirit will do so, if you are in Christ, because He has promised to guide you into all truth.
So listen now, as Bob shares truth from the scriptures with various callers. If you are wondering if you have backslidden to the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

You cannot escape troubles in this fallen world, and many people have gone through horrendous things in this life, abuse of all kinds, beaten and rejected by a spouse, or molested by a close relative, and they carry hurtful and very painful memories and scars. But God wants us to be set free with truth, to turn our eyes to Him and live in His wonderful grace. We choose not to recall those painful memories, except to the degree that we can comfort others, who are going through the same things we did, with the same comfort we received from God.
So let go of the past so you can live in the present. And at times, even the present circumstances you are in, you are an overcomer in Christ, who promised to cause all things to happen for the good to those who love Him and are called according to His good purpose. It is not that he will make bad good, but He will cause all things to turn out for your good. For example, if someone is so hard of heart, such as an unbelieving spouse, and … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

As believers, we struggle at times with all kinds of life issues. A common issue is marriage, and especially so when one or the other spouse is not a believer. AS a born again believer, we have the Spirit of God living in us, and so we have access to God’s wisdom through his word, to renew our mind so our behavior is in accordance with who we are. But a non-believer does not have that resource, and therein lies the conflict. That is why the word of God instructs believers not to be unequally yoked, for what does light have to do with darkness.
Many times people call in to ask questions about sin and forgiveness. What do you do when you sin as a believer? Why do I still sin if I am saved? Those are some of the common questions people ask. These are symptoms of not fully understanding what Jesus provided for you at the cross. When Jesus died, he took away the cause of our death, which is sin, in order that life might be given. The wages, what we deserve and earn from sin, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Listen as people call in for answers to the practical issues in life, a struggling marriage, a divorce, how to get close to God, or tough decisions when you know you are dying of cancer. It is so wise to listen. Everyone should be slow to speak and quick to listen. As you do, you gain insight into what a person is really struggling with and get a sense of the attitudes of their heart. At times, you do not know how to answer, and so biblical counseling is the best advice you can offer. But the one person who knows you better than anyone else is the Lord Jesus Christ. Many times, we contribute to our own problems. We do not inquire of the Lord. We are vulnerable to making mistakes because we have been through a previous bad marriage, and are lonely. So, at times we make dumb choices, and enter another difficult marriage. But in all these things, we do not live under the law but under grace. In Christ, there is always hope. That does not mean that a marriage will always be restored or that … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P548 (06-26-20)
Today’s callers asked for help in regard to marriage issues and even about how to quit smoking. A lady called on behalf of her older sister who is seeing another man. Another person asked for clarification on a passage of scripture in regards to a passage in regard to adultery and marriage in Matthew 18:8-10. A person called about clarification on a passage of scripture, in Colossians 1:21-23, that seemed to indicate you could lose your salvation, even though he knows you cannot. Then there was this question that you still her quite often today, “Is a Catholic a Christian?”
Many of the questions these callers asked can easily be answered when, first of all you have the Spirit of God living in you, and you know the difference between the old covenant of sin and death, before the cross, and the new covenant of grace, after the cross, that we are under today. So when Jesus is saying things in the gospel of Mathew, Mark, Luke or John, he is saying things to people living under an old covenant, and the new has not yet come.
