David in Brooklyn, NY asks how God is involved in our pain and suffering. God is sovereign and all-powerful so is He the author of the horrible things in our lives? God is not the author of evil, never tempts us with sin. Difficult circumstances serve to highlight God's promise that He will work all things together for good. We will experience trouble, trials and tribulations but we have hope in the midst of those things - the work and person of Jesus Christ. Mike in Oregon asks about Calvinism - why does Calvin get so much credit? Many theologians have studied his writings. What we need to remember is that if we are going to know anything about Jesus, it will be revealed to us by the Holy Spirit. Maryann in Kentucky called to thank Basic Gospel for the teaching and to encourage the listeners to prayerfully consider supporting the ministry both financially and through prayer. Clay asks about Zacharias - why was he rendered speechless? Gwen is struggling with trusting God. Circumstances are tough and she wonders why God is not intervening in her trials. Bob helps her focus on the fact that Jesus is bigger and God's love for her. Thanks for joining us today and we pray you will find something in this broadcast to help you stand in truth!
We have 4 very interesting questions in this week's edition. Anthony asks about divine healing. Is it available to believers and how do we acquire it? Dan called to get our position on Judaism. Is it a faith of salvation? Richard's answer clarifies that salvation is only through Jesus, not the Mosaic Covenant. It's a fascinating conversation. Teresa asks about the Word of God. Is it essential to read it daily? Bob explains that reading the Word of God is a privilege, not a duty. A heart of faith will not feel obligation but a desire to learn more about Jesus. Finally, Stephen tells us he is feeling `beat up' by his pastor. His question is, "Isn't the pastor's role to feed the sheep, not beat them up?". We pray you find these questions interesting and that they help you in your daily life! See you next week!
We begin this broadcast with a call from Peter asking if someone doesn't believe in the 6-day creation story, can they really be saved? Louise is in a season of "bad news". She is worried and wonders if God is mad at her. Bob reminds her that God is bigger than her anxiety and bigger than her worry and reassures her that God is not mad and that He desires to carry her anxiety and worry. Janelle is deeply disappointed in the church body who has not reached out to her in the midst of a family emergency. Finally, Bruce asks if the Holy Spirit is being taken away from our country. These calls highlight the importance of having a live, call-in broadcast so that people can receive insight and encouragement in the trials of life. Enjoy this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend!
