Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P585 (11-05-20)
As people grow in Christ, you will have questions. Someone might ask, “I thought you would stop sinning once you are saved. Am I not saved then, since I am still sinning?” I think if you thought that, you will find out very quickly that that cannot be true, that you stop sinning. You will begin to sin less, but none of us will ever walk in complete faith in God, and that is the essence of sin. Anything that does not come from faith is sin.
So it goes back to understanding what Jesus accomplished at the cross, when he shed his blood once and for all, and about our fallen nature we inherited in Adam, and coming alive in Christ Jesus. When Jesus died on the cross, he took away forever our sins, and the sins of the entire world, from the eyes of God. He took the full weight of death required for all sin. That is why when we are in Christ, there is no longer any condemnation for sin. If you are not in Christ, that means you remain dead in your sins because you … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P543 (06-11-20)
What advice would you share with a new believer? Would you tell him to get busy, and be sure to tithe, and make sure you pray, and to go to a prayer meeting and visitation, and to do this and do that? Or, would you point him to Jesus, the head of the body, of whom he is now a part, and allow him to learn how to receive instruction from Christ Jesus? Would it not be wise to encourage a new believer to read the word so that he has tools necessary so that no man will deceive him, and to know the nature and heart of God, to know what God has done for him and what he has in Christ?
Listen as Bob provides wise counsel to various believers who have called because they are confused about what they hear from various denominations. They ask questions about if a believer should be asking God for forgiveness when they sin, and what about 1 John 1:9, and what about speaking in tongues and about baptism of the Holy Spirit. Bob gently, but firmly, guides several callers on questions … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P6 (04-29-20)
Do people really understand what faith is? Is faith something you concentrate on for God to do something, that you could cause God to act? No, that would put you in the position of the initiator. We were born dead, and now as a born again believer, apart from Him we can do nothing. We are responders. We respond to what he has already done, and in what he has said and has already given. You have been given everything you need for life and godliness. That does not mean you live in independent from God.
2 Peter 1:3 3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
Adam chose to live independently of God, and that is how sin and death entered the world, and so all men died. Now, as a child of God, a new creation, we learn to walk in dependency upon someone who loves us perfectly, in the one who created us and knows how we were meant to function, with the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P60 (03-25-20)
As believers, we are being sanctified even as we are sanctified. Sanctified means that you are set apart for the purpose God created you. God made you into a new creation, a child of God, with His Spirit living in you. We have the mind of Christ so in our thinking we are to think differently than the world, who knows not God nor has the Spirit. So we are already sanctified. We are to walk by faith in accordance with who you are, a child of God.
God also wants us to grow, to allow ourselves to become sanctified in this world we live in. God wants to renew your mind so you live in accordance with His good purposes for you. So we are to think soberly and guard our minds.
Romans 12:1-2 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able
