Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P612 (02-26-21)
Many callers, as they are growing in Christ, as we all are, have questions. If you have been in Christ for some time now, there are certain questions that are commonly asked, which if you do not understand the context or the difference between law and grace or the difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, some passages might be confusing to you.
This is certainly true of those who grew up under some kind of religious teaching where foundational truths were not taught. Oftentimes people are taught to memorize certain passages of scripture as a child, such as through an AWANA program or some other church program for youth. The problem with scripture memory is if the passages before and after a memory verse are not read, or not understood in its context, false teaching occurs. So, in many cases, a renewing of the mind has to occur so people can grab a hold of truth.
One of the questions asked in relation to the Lord’s prayer is this. Will God forgive us if we do not forgive someone who sins against us? People also often recite … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P5 (02-16-21)
You cannot separate the word of God from the person of God. They are so intertwined. When God says something it is a total reflection of who He is. You cannot separate who He is from what He says. They are one and the same, unlike us. God is not like us. When someone asks us, “How are you doing?”, we say, “Fine” when we know very well we are not fine. We can be phony. God is never phony. When God speaks, it is always truth.
The scriptures are the very words of God and Jesus, who is God, quoted from His own words. When scriptures prophecy something is going to happen, it happens as recorded in the scripture. Scriptures spoke of what is going to be fulfilled in Christ long before the unfolding events happen, and those events happen just as the Word says it will happen.
Throughout His earthly ministry Jesus validated the Word of God as the absolute standard of truth. The gospels record Jesus making almost 160 quotations from or allusions to the Old Testament. Three-fourths of the books in the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P513 (02-20-20)
It is heartbreaking to see the consequences of sin, the condition of death, in the lives of people. Listen as Bob answers a call of someone who is struggling, His wife is on the verge of destroying her life and marriage through addiction to alcohol. Bob applies biblical truth and practical advice to get him the help he needs. He exhorts him to make those decisions, to be firm in confronting her that we are getting help immediately: “I love you too much to see you destroy your life. ” It is heavy stuff this man is going through, and his wife enslaved in this pattern of thinking and behavior.
Is that not the heart of God? Here is God, looking down on His creation, saying, “I love you too much to see you destroyed forever.” He sent His Son to do something for us we could never do for ourselves. It is not a shame to admit you need help, that you need to call upon someone to give you the answer you need, the truth you need to hear, so you can receive new life, and begin a … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P430 (4-11-19)
Bob George answered calls from several believers who wanted clarification of truth. There are many things people hear from the church world today. Oftentimes what they hear is confusing and contrary to what they have been reading in God’s word. There is a tendency to trust what a pastor says over what can clearly be revealed from God’s word. Remember, the Holy Spirit is your teacher and He will guide you into all truth. Take heed to His word.
Michael was puzzled about these parents who take their kids to psychologists to get treated for behavioral issues like attention deficit disorder. Where does that all come from. Bob tells people to go to the manufacturer. Who created our bodies and knows how we are made? God. Then go to God and find out about how our mind, will and emotions work. Yet, oftentimes, the first person we see is a psychologist, and more often than not, he does not even know the Lord. Why go to the ungodly for counsel?
