We begin this week with a tribute to Rich Andresen, Chairman of the Board of Basic Gospel, who passed away this past Sunday. He loved Basic Gospel, he loved and blessed the staff in many ways, and he was a treasured and effective leader. We will miss Rich but we rejoice that he is now in the arms of his Savior. James in Denver called to ask how to lead a friend to Christ but doesn't want to attend church. Andrew asks why so many people continue to teach "tithing" instead of New Covenant giving. Jim in Dallas is not a Christian and bases his decision on Revelation 12:9. David asks about making estate decisions; he wants to leave a portion to charity but thinks that his children would be upset.

Ray in San Francisco asks why most gospel teachers complicate the message. They seem to always add works to the mix. Why don't they teach 'saved by grace, through faith'? Bob Davis brings up a recent article reporting that in England doctors are encouraged to call mothers 'pregnant people' in order to avoid offending transgender people. Samuel asks about Romans 10:9, "because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Is this a test for others to gauge someone's condition, or a test to examine ourselves? Mitch asks about "the just will live by faith, not by sight". Is that speaking to looking for signs from God or is it speaking about the meaning of faith?

Phil responded to a call he heard about divorce and remarriage. The caller was concerned that he was committing adultery. Johnny's email asks if God will forgive him for being divorced and remarried. Is he going to hell? James asks about 1 John 1:9. Is this passage speaking to confession of sins in order to receive forgiveness? This is often a stumbling block passage. Bob gives a clear explanation of this passage. Tony called inquiring about President Trump, asking if he's a believer or not. While we can't answer his question with certainty, President Trump does seem to be relying on a panel of spiritual advisors and indicates that he is a strong advocate for Christianity.
