Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis

Thanks to all of those in NYC for their hospitality and a wonderful event with WMCA at the American Bible Society and then the wonderful service at Beulah Baptist Church with our friend Timothy Ryals. * On Friday we talked about the fear of death. But the hope we have in Jesus allows us to live freely today. Through His resurrection He broke the power of death. * Why did God give dominion over the world to Satan? Ephesians 2:1-10 "As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air..." * Is Christianity a religion? * Where there people created before Adam and Eve? * I'm going through a time in my life that I just want to hide. I don't trust man and I don't know if I even trust God. Is God big enough to handle my anger at Him? Ephesians 3:16-19 "I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being..."

Can they be a pastor? * Knowing we are all one in Christ * Why does God allow such devastating weather that harms people? * Man has a sin problem and what is the only answer?

Let Jesus Set You Free

Richard Peifer, Bob Davis

Luke 13:10-17 "On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, 'Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.'..." If you want to have the same experience this woman had, come to Jesus and let Him set you free. * How do all the events we see happening today relate to the end times? * What does James mean by faith and works? * I used to know that I knew that I knew I was saved. But over the last few years I've lost the assurance of my salvation. What does it mean to respond to faith in God's call?

The Hope We Have in Christ Jesus

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

Bob Christopher, Richard Peifer, Bob Davis

Peter wrote this at the end of his first letter... "Cast all your cares on Him, because He cares for you." This world is full of anxiety. So often we forget that God is in the picture. When we cast our cares upon Him that's when we can truly rest in Christ. * The name Jehovah is a translation from Yahweh. Is this the original name for God? * I'm confused about Romans 3:31 "Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law." Do we ignore the law? * Bob will be in NYC July 24 at the American Bible Society. basicgospel.net/events * My husband recently left, but I still talk to him everyday. I'm so anxious everyday.

What can I do to help her? * How do you separate submitting in a holy way vs. submitting to the enemy? Are we supposed to accept abusive behavior?
