Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P813 (03-02-23)
What is Faith? And How Am I Saved?
~ “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.”Hebrews 11:1,2
~ Carlos “Thank you, okay. Sometimes I listen to your program on and off. And my question is about faith. And, first of all, what is faith, and is faith all I need to be saved?”
~ Bob George “Carlos, it’s not your faith. It’s who your faith is in you and I exercise faith every day we exercise faith, when we sit in the chair that’s going to hold us we exercise faith when we go into a restaurant, that they’re not serving us poison. So we exercise faith every day in something. So it’s, it’s not our faith, it’s who our faith is in. And our faith has to come into the one who claimed to be the way in the truth and the life. And the no one will come to the Father except through me, and that’s the Christ Jesus. And that’s where our faith has to be placed in the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P64 (08-08-22)
Today the Body of Christ is the Body of Believers
~ The church, the ecclesia, the True church is made up of born again believers in Christ Jesus. The church is not on the corner of walk and don’t walk. It is not someplace you go. No one goes to church. Sure we use that term in everyday talk, but the truth of the matter is that the church is all over the earth today, and the Holy Spirit has made us a part of that group, when the Spirit comes to indwell a person, they become part of the body of Christ Jesus.

Classic Christianity – Thanksgiving Part 2 (11-23-21)
Understanding the Work of The Ministry – Trusting in Jesus
Where are you in this coming up Thanksgiving season? Are you in a season of your life now where you are free to talk with your mother or your father? Or is that relationship strained? Do you have brothers and sisters in Christ whom you can be with? Well, you are blessed. God tells us to be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. What does that mean? God sees you and rejoices with you when you rejoice but He also grieves with you when you grieve. He is always available for help in time of need. And there is the peace of God that surpasses all understanding because you know Him. You have understood and entered the Sabbath rest with God. That is why we can be thankful.

Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P604 (02-03-21)
Oftentimes people grow up with religion and reject the reality of Christ Jesus. They associate Christ with things spoken in context of preachers speaking things that are simply not true. Instead of checking out what is being said as being true or not, we see no reality in it, so we reject the religion, but sadly we also reject Christ, whom we associate with in our minds. But one day, we see the reality of a changed life in someone else, who has the Spirit of God living in him. So we ask, what is it in him that is different? What kind of life does he have that I do not? Then you hear the practical wisdom he shares from God’s word. Your heart is moved. You see the practical wisdom and how people are able to walk in joy and peace. People have come to Christ that way. Christ in you was a light that shined in a dark world, but truth was made known concerning Christ, of the gospel that saves, and he believed and put His faith in Christ.
Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P51 (03-03-20)
Have you ever wondered what your spiritual gift is? Maybe you already know? Bob shares a life example to help you discern your spiritual gift. Suppose a child spills a glass of milk at a church gathering, what would your immediate response be? With this simple example, you can more readily see if you are a servant, encourager, admonisher, teacher, or leader.
Read along in Romans 12, as Paul describes the spiritual gifts and then explains their purpose. Their purpose is not to edify or serve yourself, but to serve, edify and benefit the body. So the gifts are given by God, as He apportioned them to each member of the body, to serve one another in love. Bob then turns to Ephesians 4, another passage that provides more details on the purpose of the body. Ponder also on these verses in Ephesians 3:14-20, Romans 8:9 and Matthew 28:19-20.
Bob then explains what Trinity is. The reason people have difficulty understanding Trinity is because they try to put flesh and blood on them. You cannot do that. God is Spirit. You cannot see Spirit. Bob uses the illustration of an egg; … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
