Recently Bob Christopher addressed a hard passage - Hebrews 6:4-6. Is it possible to "fall away" from grace and lose your salvation? That's not what the writer of Hebrews is teaching. Context is important. Dwight asked for an explanation of 1 Corinthians 13:3. Does this mean that we need to give all we possess to the poor but do it without love, does it mean nothing? Kade asks if there will be no marriage in Heaven, will he and his wife have no relationship at all? Veronica's question is about the role of the Holy Spirit in our glorified bodies.

One of the questions we get most frequently concerns the Lamb's Book of Life. Is it possible for a believer's name to be removed from it? Richard gives an extensive answer. Derron asks about 1 Corinthians 6:9-20. A lot of religions use this scripture to condemn believers. Is that a correct interpretation of that passage? Steve asks if we believe that the rapture of the church will happen before the second coming of Christ? And do you believe that Jesus will reign for an actual 1000 years in Jerusalem?

Are recent events fulfillment of prophecies in the Bible? Most prophecy speculation is rooted is fear. In Christ, we can look forward to security, confidence, blessing and hope in the future. Carl asks about capital punishment. Does the Bible speak to that? Kristin asks about church discipline. She is concerned that a church "kicked out" a member for sexual immorality. What makes that sin worse than any other? Don't we all sin and isn't the church to reach out to them in love? Bob addresses a common question we receive: What is the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit? If you are a believer, there is good news in the answer!

We begin with Matthew 7:21-23. In this passage Jesus states that to some he will say "Depart from me, I never knew you". Could that happen to you? Bob Christopher has good news! Ryan called to discuss his faith in the face of terminal brain cancer. Should he use his writings about his journey to generate income? Scott's question is "If money is the root of all evil, why do churches ask for it?" Bob and Richard have a frank discussion about the role of giving for a believer. Is it a requirement or a response to what God has done? Tim asks if babies and mentally challenged people are alive spiritually until the age of accountability? Is there Biblical support for that position? Peggy asks "Will God ever stop chasing us?" God's desire is for none to perish as Bob explains.

1 Peter 3:18-22 is one of the most comforting and victorious passages in all of the Bible. There is nothing for us to fear as far as suffering is concerned. We can be certain of our life even in the midst of circumstances. * A Minnesota listener wrote about his divorce. She is making her new partner a part of their children's lives. She has shown no remorse. He is torn in regard to forgiving her. * Tom asks about John 6:44 and speaks to the issue of "drawing". Does God draw some and not others? * An email question asks what is the purpose of Christ interceding for us in Heaven? Don't the accusations of Satan fall on deaf ears?

1 Peter 3:7 can be a confusing passage. It is often used to command husbands on how to treat their wives. The passage is really about the inside-out nature of our relationships. Tom asks about John 6:65 which says "no one can come to me unless it is granted by the Father." A California listener asks if his tithe has to go to a church or can he give to a charity or ministry like Basic Gospel. Giving is not an obligation; it's a response to God's leading. Ron asks if we will be held accountable for the number of people we lead to Jesus? Is there a "quota" that believers must meet?

This broadcast begins with a "hard passage" from the Bible. The kind of passage that makes you scratch your head and ask "What in the world does this mean?". The first is 1 Peter 1:1-6 which talks about wives being submissive to their husbands. Many look at this through legalistic eyes and make it just another list of rules and regulations. That's not what it is at all. David in Hawaii asks about salvation not being complete until you are baptized with water. Tom asks whether 1 John 1:9 was written to believers or non-believers.

Glory called to ask about movements such as the New Apostolic Reformation, emergent churches and contemplative prayer. Are people involved in movements like these on dangerous ground? Jose' asks about fear of God-what is it and is like a father who punishes his child? Chris in Virginia asks what to do in his life regarding `being a voice' for the gospel?

Ryan from Canada called to thank Basic Gospel for the clear message of forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Ryan has a terminal diagnosis. His dad came to Christ because of Ryan's faith. His encouragement is to support the ministry because of how the gospel has impacted three generations of his family. Tom's question is what is the theology of the Bible? Brad called to share his story of how he has learned to "be a voice" for the gospel through Basic Gospel. John asks for an explanation of sanctification. What is it and how do we become sanctified? Mary Jo asks how to forgive others without letting them take advantage of you? A YouTube viewer asks about eternal security - can we truly say that once we are saved, we don't have to worry ever again about our salvation?

Our first caller asks about her marriage. After 54 years of marriage, her husband wants a divorce. He is in early stages of dementia and she doesn't know what to do. Mike emailed us with a question about how to minister and show compassion and love to the people he encounters in his job as a policeman. The job and his faith seem contradictory at times. Jan asked about the teaching he heard about power in a woman's long hair. Deron asks about Jesus' taking our sins at the cross. Is that why Jesus cried out "Why have you forsaken me?" Did the spirit of God temporarily leave him? Tom is coming out of self-imposed legalism. The New Covenant seems too simple. What's the catch?
