Welcome inside the studio. You may have noticed that Bob Christopher was away this past week on vacation.
I’m sure he is taking the time off to do yard work — mowing, edging, trimming shrubs and, since spring seems already to be here (it’s actually been here since August), he is no doubt on his hands and knees digging in the dirt, planting flowers, doing repairs around the house. And going shopping with Jeanna — I’m sure of it.
So with Bob away, it was Richard and me and I am very thankful to have two excellent Bible scholars to work with inside the studio, both of whom are excellent with callers. So thanks to Richard for very capably holding forth during BC’s absence.
Okay, let’s see who has called recently…
Our first call this week is from Antione in Los Angeles who refers to a sports figure with whom many Basic Gospel friends will not be familiar. In fact, neither was I until Antoine pointed out the importance of finding and holding onto our identity in Christ Jesus rather than identifying ourselves by what we do.
The call refers to Ronda Rousey, a previously undefeated American female mixed martial artist, who lost a fight for the first time in November, and had subsequent thoughts of suicide.
Let’s pick up the call now from Antoine in Los Angeles:
Expressing concerns over certain conversations with her boyfriend, Sylvia made the call to Basic Gospel for some guidance. Let’s hear that conversation:
From Fairfax, Virginia, we received a call from Chris with a question many have — true believers walking away from God. Let’s hear how Bob Christopher and Andrew Farley answer:
How to share Christ online without being overbearing. That’s a concern to Tony, from Middletown, Delaware.
Well, that’s it for another week. I hope you have found these calls interesting and helpful in your daily lives.
