These interesting questions make up this Basic Gospel Weekend edition. Donna asks what is God's reaction to our sins. Bob explains that we are children of God, He assures our hearts that the punishment for that sin went upon Jesus, He shows us the consequence of our sin and encourages us to be reconciled to those we offended, and He continues to teach you to say "no" to sin and "yes" to Jesus. Kenny asks for clarification of the unpardonable sin. Brian's question is about passages in Revelation which seem to indicate that you can lose salvation. Bob brings Jesus front and center in his answer. John's email is about the possibility of converting from Judaism to Christianity. George expresses his appreciation for the ministry - the resources he received were the catalyst for understanding God's grace.
In this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend, you will hear two people receive Christ. What a wonderful privilege we have to present the Gospel and see it connect with hurting hearts. Jeremiah asks "Is it only through Christ that you can be saved?" Antoine asks about the Holy Spirit - do we receive the Holy Spirit at salvation? Then we hear from Eddie who says, "I am trying to do the right thing. I know anger is holding me back. I need help." Bob and Andrew explain that Christ paid the punishment for all our sins and he wants to live through us. Who is bigger? Your sins or Jesus Christ? Invite Jesus to be the answer to your problem. James calls to ask if habitual sin can cause a person to lose their salvation. Bob gives James some good news - once we're made alive, we can't go back to death. Jesus has promised he will never leave you or forsake you, he has promised to complete his work in you, he has promised that he is going to conform you to the image of Christ, and that one day he's going to come back and take you to be where he is. Because God is righteous and faithful, he is going to deliver on each and every one of those promises. Then we hear from Gwen who says, "I know intellectually who God is, but I don't feel a personal connection to him." Bob explains salvation to Gwen who prays an emotional prayer and receives Jesus Christ. If the Gospel message penetrates your heart as you listen to this special broadcast, please let us know!

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!
