Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P568 (09-04-20)
So many people call in with questions they want answers to. Some wonder how we are meant to live the Christian life. Others wonder about end time events, like what has happened to Damasus. And in our world today, the end of the age certainly seems to be speedily coming toward the end. Time seems so short, like the rapture could occur within ten years. There are so many signs we see today, like Damascus being a heap of ruins, as prophesied by Isaiah.
But as curious as many people are toward end time events, the nagging questions people have about the meaning and purpose of life are still the same. It seems error seems to spread like wildfire and can never be quenched from being spread to the naive and those lacking discernment. The same errors are being propagated from generation to generation, from denominational persuasions of men and from the world. You still keep hearing the same questions. Is tithing for today? Why do pastors teach tithing? What is this strange teaching I hear about healing in the atonement? How can anyone find out what is true?

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.

Listen as Bob explains the difference between law and grace and about the New Covenant we live under today. When we understand the truth of what Christ Jesus has accomplished for us, that we are no longer under the law of sin and death but under grace. We are now under the law of life in Christ Jesus. By understanding such spiritual truths, we can answer some of the common questions that keeps tripping people up.
Should we confess our sins to God? Yes, to agree with God as to it being wrong, and as a child of God so you may learn truth that will set you free, and so you can walk in faith. But to ask God to forgive you of your sins is not walking in faith. That is asking God to do something He has already done. He will not go back to a cross to shed his blood all over again. To ask God for forgiveness when in Him you already have it is insulting Him and is like exposing him to public disgrace all over again. We are to worship God in Spirit … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

The subject of forgiveness comes up quite often by people who call into the Classic Christianity radio program. It is still today the most commonly asked questions. Why did Jesus say that if you do not forgive your brother, neither will I forgive you? What happens when I sin? Should I ask God to forgive me? What do I do when I sin? These are the most commonly asked questions. Then you have questions about baptism and how to live this new life God has given.
First of all, what is sin? Most people think of sin as the nasty five, the terrible twelve or the dirty dozen, where you rate lying maybe as a 2, stealing a 4, adultery an 8 and murder a 10. But what is the root of all sin? What are the attitudes of the heart, such as anger and lust that leads to the sin? Jesus even said if you look lustfully at a girl you have already committed adultery, and so too with hatred being murder. Let us go deeper than that. What did Adam do in the garden of Eden before the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

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
