We begin with William who points us to the Word of God that no one will be justified by observance of the law. Galatians says that those who rely on the law have fallen away from grace and are alienated from Christ. We cannot justify ourselves by obedience to the law. Steve is concerned that his church teaches a mixed message about salvation - that you must keep yourself saved through works. Bob encourages him to find a church who focuses on the person and work of Christ Jesus. Francisco wants to know why the church doesn't stand up to those who are offended by the cross. Bob discusses how the church has become anemic in today's world. Our friend, Frank, called to disagree with us regarding obedience. We appreciate Frank's passion; however, we don't agree with his opinions. Bob handles Frank's call with grace and supporting scripture. It's always an interesting conversation when Frank calls! Lucy asks about Galatians 6:2 - what exactly does it mean to bear one another's burden? An anonymous writer asks if God calls all people or are some not called? Bob discusses the universal call of God and the hearts who respond. Audrey's question asks about eternal security. Bob explains what salvation truly is. Once you understand this truth, you can live in assurance of your salvation.

Howard asks what the proper Christian perspective is on alcohol consumption. Bob gives a practical, scripture-focused answer. Sam asks for clarification of Revelation 22:18. Does it mean that one can lose their salvation? Bob explains that Revelation is the revelation of Jesus Christ and is full of good news for the believer! We received an anonymous email asking about the tribulation. How will people be saved during the tribulation? It's an interesting question. Freddy called from New York to comment on his belief that you can lose your salvation if you are not obedient. Bob takes him straight to the grace of God for the answer. We will lose hope if we focus on "do's and don'ts" and not on the person and work of Jesus Christ. Chris asks for insight on an issue he has with fear of hurting other people. Andrew gives an encouraging answer straight from the Word of God. Tim wants to know if we are "obligated" to go to church. Bob explains that the issue is not one of obligation, but of encouragement.

Alicia called to say thank you. She originally called over a year ago with high anxiety about her work situation. She wanted to let us know that now the grace of God is teaching her how to deal with her work issues in a whole new way. We could hear the change in her voice and we thank God for using Basic Gospel to make a difference in her life! In Alicia's words, "What an awesome God we serve!" Kathy called asking about what she calls "faith-failure". When life is full of trials, she finds herself focusing on the problem and not the Lord. Andrew gives great encouragement for Kathy and for all of us. Nelson calls to express his opinion that we are saved by grace; however, believers must work to be obedient. Bob points him to the truth that obedience is a result of the work of grace in our lives. As we continue to respond, by faith, to the finished work of Christ, we will see the fruit of that faith in our life. Annie asks for clarification on what will happen at the Rapture. Will those who are left have a chance to be saved or will it be too late? Bob and Richard both discuss this question at length. Thanks for joining us!

Valerie called from New York asking about speaking in tongues. Her church teaches that it is evidence of being baptized in the spirit. Andrew & Bob address this often misunderstood subject. Vincent asks if God's love is different for believers than it is for non-believers? There's good news in the answer! Frank called with comments about justification. Bob disagrees with Frank's viewpoint and shares his insight. It's an important subject to consider. An anonymous email asks for definition of the conscience - what is it? Bob talks about the moral compass that resides in all of us. We address another email question asking if God calls only some people or only those who have responded to the Gospel. This is a question that troubles a lot of people - listen as Bob responds with the good news! Thanks for joining us!

We begin with Tony from New York who is concerned about the new RFID chip - is it the mark of the beast? Bob and Richard address that fear. Our friend, Mary Jo, calls asking about "the man of lawlessness" in the Bible. Is the man helping Satan or is he Satan? Andrew and Richard have interesting insight into anti-Christ. Marie called expressing concern about her new church - they seem to be inordinately focused on Satan, Lucifer, and sin instead of talking about the love of Christ. Andrew encourages her to focus on Christ, not the enemy. Chris from Virginia asks for discussion about the idea that God gets more strict (higher expectations) with believers as they grow. Listen and learn how to depend on the solid rock of God's love. Ken asks about Abraham and his gift of a tenth to Melchizadek. Was Melchizadek really Jesus? Thanks for listening to this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend!

Kenneth asks a great question to kick off this edition. What is the truth about post-baptismal sin? Richard discusses this in great detail. Richard says "The things I do wrong no longer have eternal consequence because the one thing I did right - choose Jesus. Marianne called to encourage others to take advantage of the Basic Gospel app. Valerie asks for clarification of something Richard said about witnessing to people in his own strength (selfish motives) versus following the leading of the Spirit. Mike called to share his testimony about when the grace of God really came true for him. He says, "Finally, I am trusting the Lord Jesus and am truly resting in Him". Nicole asks about addiction within marriage - how do you rebuild trust after the damage of addiction? Finally, we answer an email question regarding a passage in James which seems to say we must confess our sins. The passage is really talking about reconciliation within relationships, community, and local fellowships. Thanks for joining us!

This is a special Good Friday edition of Basic Gospel. The most significant event of human history is the Christ Event - the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

From all of us at Basic Gospel, Happy Easter! Shout it from the rooftop - He is risen!

Jeremy asks do we ask forgiveness for every sin in our life? Other ministries seem to say we need to keep 'short accounts' with God. There is good news - you are genuinely at peace with God. There is no in or out of fellowship. Bill is an agnostic and asks what is the original Gospel? Bill questions the gospel accounts. He's asking for proof that Jesus Christ is God. Richard does a great job of communicating with Bill. Veronica asks about tithing. She and her husband send support to his family members in the Dominican Republic. Is she still required to tithe? The New Covenant calls us to the "grace of giving". It is all about walking by faith and following the leading of the Holy Spirit. Earnest asks about the names of Jesus. Hebrews called him Yeshua. How did the name Jesus come about? Marcus asks for clarification on the judgment seat of Christ. If our sins have all been forgiven why would we have to come to the judgment seat? Andrew gives great clarification on this issue. You will be encouraged by his answer and will look at the judgment seat in a different way! Thanks for joining us!
