We address some important issues in this week's edition. First up is Martin who asks about the warning in Ephesians to not give the devil a foothold. We look to the context of scripture to answer this question and find that this passage is really an "attitude" passage and instruction to not let emotions have control over our actions. Sonia asks about adultery - can the adulterer be forgiven? Richard explains that while we have to bear the fruit of our behavior, if a believer falls into the trap of adultery, he still has the promise of redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Jose' asks for insight into how to properly study the Bible. The simple answer is `context, context, context'! Al called to find out what the "treasures in Heaven" are. Ephesians 1:3 holds the key to that question. We end with a call from Gary asking about the often misunderstood gift of tongues. Andrew and Richard explain the scriptural definition of tongues. Thanks for joining us and we pray this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend will be a benefit to you! See you next week!
We begin this week with a question from Debbie. A woman at a bible study challenged her salvation because she doesn't speak in tongues. Bob debunks the allegation and encourages her with the true meaning of salvation. Russell is questioning his religious upbringing and asks what grace really means. An email question from a man who asks how to forgive his ex-wife for her adultery so they can have a good relationship for their children. Darrell asks if John the Baptist was not worthy to unlatch Jesus' shoes and yet the woman who anointed His feet was worthy. What makes them different? We end with Jeff's request for clarification about Hebrews 6 as it pertains to losing salvation. This is a very interesting Basic Gospel Weekend and we pray it is an encouragement to you!
The first two questions in this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend both have the same root issue. First, Lynn calls to say that sin has a stronghold in his life and he struggles with self-image. As he says, "the whole tree is rotten". Jeremy echoes that sentiment in his question. "I'm a 37 year old broken man. I've done so many dumb things. To be forgiven would be great. I want God to know I love him." Both of these courageous questions highlight one central issue - our identity in Christ. The truth is that we are children of God. He loves us and is not counting our sin against us. Next we address a "hot" topic - speaking in tongues. Bob walks Ralph through what the scripture says about tongues. Also, Ralph asks about the "greater works" that Jesus spoke about. Finally, Brad asks about remarriage. He says "I've begged God 1000 times for forgiveness. How can I let go of the guilt for remarrying. Does remarriage put me in a state of condemnation?" Bob points him to the powerful truth of forgiveness. God is not counting sins against us. He has given us new life and there is now NO condemnation. The accuser constantly turns our focus to sin - God wants us to keep our eyes on Jesus. We pray this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend will help you in your life!
This weekend edition highlights real life issues and addresses how we, as believers, can respond.
