Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P480 (10-10-19)
Bob received calls from several listeners, answering questions in the world today as well as the practical issues. Bob explains the gospel message and applies that to the practical problems people face today. Bob addresses the practical issues of life, such as anger issues stemming from fear, marital problems, and living in freedom from religious tradition, by the practical message of the gospel, Christ in you, the hope of glory. We are born dead and in need of life. That is not a religious thing. That is a very practical message God came to bring to man through new life in Christ Jesus.
The reason Gloria is struggling in marriage is because she is unequally yoked to a non-believer who does not have any indication he is willing to live with her, being adamantly opposed to the message of Christ Jesus and is abusive to her. God’s word provides instruction to a believer that he has freedom to leave a non-believer to live in peace. God wants us to live in peace. Yet, if a non-believer is willing to live with you, is not opposed to you being a Christian … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 83 (10-09-19)
Jesus did not die on Friday. He died on Thursday. Just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale for three days and three nights so too was the Son of God in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.
Matthew 12:40 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Now it says in verse 31. It was the day of preparation. The next day was to be the special Sabbath. That is what we just talked about. Preparation on Thursday, Special Sabbath on Friday, the first day of the feast of unleavened bread. Then the next day, because the Jews did not want to leave the body on the Sabbath, the regular Sabbath day, they asked Pilate to have his legs broken.
John 19:31-37 31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the

Bob George shared from John chapter 4 on Jesus encounter with a Samaritan woman. The Jews hated the Samaritans and the Samaritans hated the Jews. It was not customary for a Jew to even go through Samaria let alone talk to a Samaritan. But Jesus would meet with a Samaritan woman. After talking about living water, she asked Jesus to give her this living water. Jesus told to her to get her husband and come back. When she said she had no husband, Jesus told her she has had five husbands and the man she is living with now is not her husband.
John 4:19-20 19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”
She said to Jesus, “You are a prophet for how could you know these things. Then, being ashamed, changed the subject. We, Samaritans, worship on this mountain called Mount Gerizim. Yet, you Jews worship on Jerusalem. In today’s language, it would be like saying: “You people claim you have the only church … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 13 (04-29-19)
Bob George explains from the book of John what it means to be born again. When you are born again, scripture tells us that Spirit of God comes to live in you. In Romans, you read that without the Spirit of God you do not belong to Him.
Romans 8:9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.
You cannot be born again unless born of the Spirit.
John 3:34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.
Jesus came to this earth, as God in the flesh, totally emptying himself of his divine attributes in order to show us what full dependence on the holy Spirit as a man looks like. Still fully God, Jesus came to speak the words of God.
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 11 (04-23-19)
Bob resumes the study of the gospel of John. He introduces John chapter 4, but first, he revisits John chapter 3. This is one of the most important chapters because it teaches us how to enter a brand new relationship with Christ Jesus. We not only come to him to be our Lord and Savior but also to be our teacher.
Bob shares again how man is already dead in sin, born in the nature of Adam. Man cannot give spiritual life to man because he does not have spiritual life in himself. But a man was sent from heaven to explain heavenly things to man. God sent Jesus to redeem man from the consequences of sin, which is death. Satan deceived man and man chose to believe the lie. Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy but God sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, not to condemn the world, but to save man through him. Man was condemned already. Man is dead and in need of life.
