Never Will I Leave You

Tue Apr 22, 2014 - 3:00pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Andrew Farley, Bob Davis

Today is marked on the calendar as "Earth Day". I thought is would be interesting to talk about faith vs. science. How can we hold firm to our beliefs and intelligently discuss science? We can study matter, but ultimately we need to know where something came from. It comes down to origins. We know it all comes from God. * Please explain Hebrews 13:5. "Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'" * Since there are many probable facts and prophecies in the Bible, is there a book with those recorded? * Joel talks about the age of earth in the light of God time vs. human time.

Overwhelming Evidence

Mon Apr 21, 2014 - 3:00pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer

We celebrated what basic Gospel is all about yesterday. The fact that Jesus Christ is raised from the dead is hope for us. Hope beyond the grave. Life has been restored in us. The life lost in Adam and been replaced in Christ. But how do we know that Christ is resurrected? One of the sources is the eye witness accounts. * Please explain 1 Corinthians 3:17 "If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy that person; for God's temple is sacred, and you together are that temple." * Eugene talks about the resurrection and shares his insight. * Why did Paul warn Christians to not quench the Holy Spirit? 1 Thessalonians 5:19

It is Finished!

Fri Apr 18, 2014 - 3:00pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis

On this special Good Friday edition of Basic Gospel, Bob tells the story of Jesus' trial and execution as God demonstrated His incredible love for us as Christ took our sins on Himself, paying the ultimate price so that we could share in His righteousness and resurrected life. Richard gives insight into the Old Testament sacrificial system and what it meant to the Israelites. He goes on to compare the Old Testament and it's many sacrifices to the one perfect sacrifice of the New Covenant. *** This program was repeated for the 3:30 broadcast. ***

You Were Included in the Resurrection

Thu Apr 17, 2014 - 3:30pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis, Andrew Farley

With the resurrection three words come to mind, hope, life, and power. The resurrection has implications in our life here and now. I hope more and more believers will let it be the center issue of our daily lives. * Romans 2:13 and 3:20 seem contradictory. What is the difference? * I've been involved in both AA and NA and have over twenty years of sobriety. How do you address a group who has so many different beliefs? And how do you address those who argue against a God that would condemn "good people" to Hell. * How do I live the full Christian life? Have we strayed away from the early church?

Hope, Life, and Power

Thu Apr 17, 2014 - 3:00pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis, Andrew Farley

I think we're in the most exciting week of the calendar for Christians. The resurrection of Jesus is good news for those who turn to Him and receive Him. Apart from His resurrection there is no hope. Resurrection gives us Hope, Life, and Power. * Do you agree that David was a man after God's own heart? So why does David ask forgiveness if there is he had such a close relationship with God? * When I'm at home I'm confident of my salvation, but at work it feels like I'm lost.

Encouragement in the Body

Wed Apr 16, 2014 - 3:30pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis, Ted Cole

Romans 5:10 sums up the entire Gospel in very few words... "For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!" * Where did the reality of resurrection take hold of you? * Ted shares about his home group that meets once a month to encourage one another in Christ. * How hard is it to host a home group? * Join us for STAND2014 June 19-21 at The Hope Center in Plano Texas. stand2014.com/ * Lorelda expresses the importance and her joy for the resurrected Christ as we celebrate Easter. * How do we deal with a pastor found in adultery?

Love Your Enemies

Wed Apr 16, 2014 - 3:00pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis

Romans 5:10 "For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!" Jesus died so that when He was raised we too could share in His life. * If we have to deal with sin everyday, do we have to repent for those? * Do you think the movie "Noah" was strategic in removing God from the film? * Please explain Matthew 5:44-46 "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven..." * Robert shares how Jesus removed his desire to sin.

The Resurrection Changes Everything

Tue Apr 15, 2014 - 3:00pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis, John Lynch

John Lynch joins the Basic Gospel team today to discuss the STAND2014 conference coming up in June 19-21. Join us by registering online at stand2014.com * We've been talking about the resurrection this month about how it impacts our lives. John shares what the resurrection means to him. "Because of the resurrection the same grace that saved me is the same grace that lives through me. The implications of the resurrection I've been learning has been astonishing to me. I have a new shame-free identity. He has taken that away. One of the greatest things I'm getting in touch with is not only being loved by God, but being able to love God." "It's as if God says, 'you are my responsibility and I know how to mature you.'" "When I wear a mask only the mask gets loved." *** This program was repeated for the 3:30 broadcast. ***

A New Command I Give You

Mon Apr 14, 2014 - 3:30pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis

The evidence of the Gospel is seen in us who have come to Christ. And it's seen in a very practical way. In John 13:34-35 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." * What do you think of the up rise of this new apostolic reformation? * Jude 3 "Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God's holy people." * I know we're not supposed to lie, but I hear people say "everybody lies". Yet I'm frustrated with lying. * How can we be sure that we're pursuing things in the Spirit or the flesh? * How do I effectively study the Bible in the midst of all the distractions in life?

The Full Extent of His Love

Mon Apr 14, 2014 - 3:00pm US Central

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis

This is the most significant week on the Christian calendar. I love how the Gospel writers layout this week as it starts with Jesus riding on a donkey and the palm branches laid out. They were looking for a king to rescue them. But He came to become Lord and King of our life. * I'm a new Christian. I've started reading the Bible, but am feeling overwhelmed. * In the Torah the Israelites where instructed to let the land rest in the seventh year. Should we continue to do that today? * In the Torah the Israelites where instructed to let the land rest in the seventh year. Should we continue to do that today?
