Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P488 (11-01-19)
Several callers asked common questions that people wrestle with today. How should I pray? Should I continually ask God for something over and over again? Should you wait and just trust God to work? How do I share the word of God, the gospel with my friends? Should I just let my actions speak louder than my words? What about persevering to the end? Is that what believers have to do to be sure they are saved? Is abortion sin? What if I am a believer and I have committed that sin? What do I do now?
Bob shares truth from scripture to help these callers in the situation they have found themselves. There is no sin that you and I as believers cannot commit. Like all of us, when we are ashamed of our sin, we want to hide, possibly out of fear of how others will respond to that sin. It is so important for us to recognize that those sins we commit, and will commit, had been placed on the back of God never to see them again, from His standpoint.

Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P5 (10-29-19)
Bob George is camping on Romans 1:16-17, the key to understanding the book of Romans. Paul is saying he is not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God for salvation for everyone, first for the Jew, but for both the Jew and the Gentile.

Now, what kind of questions should be asked? What is the gospel? Why is Paul not ashamed of the gospel? What is salvation? What is righteousness, and what is this righteousness specifically from God? Are they different? How is this righteousness revealed? How is this righteousness received by faith? What is faith? Faith in what? In who?
Many a person has asked these kinds of questions. Why am I here? What will happen to me when I die? Why can I not do the things I want to do and the very things I hate to do, I do anyway? Why am I empty inside? These kinds of questions are asked because man is born spiritually dead. When the first person, Adam, created by … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P477 (9-27-19)
Nick from Loredo, TX
Nick: I was listening to someone preach the other day. He said you cannot be a cafeteria Christian. What he meant was that you cannot be a Christian that just picks and chooses scriptures and live accordingly. It is either all of the scripture or none of them.
Bob: Well, that is not true. You certainly do not want to be living under the Old Covenant when it has been replaced by the New Covenant. I do not know what his theology is. Let us take two scenarios. If he is saying that we are just as much under the Old Covenant as the New Covenant, then that person is out to lunch. If the Jews could not live under the Old Covenant, we cannot live under it either. That is why God came to replace the Old Covenant. The Old Covenant is obsolete, old and aging and will soon disappear. We do not live under the Old Covenant. We live under the New Covenant.
Hebrews 8:13 13 By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated
