We have 4 very interesting questions in this week's edition. Anthony asks about divine healing. Is it available to believers and how do we acquire it? Dan called to get our position on Judaism. Is it a faith of salvation? Richard's answer clarifies that salvation is only through Jesus, not the Mosaic Covenant. It's a fascinating conversation. Teresa asks about the Word of God. Is it essential to read it daily? Bob explains that reading the Word of God is a privilege, not a duty. A heart of faith will not feel obligation but a desire to learn more about Jesus. Finally, Stephen tells us he is feeling `beat up' by his pastor. His question is, "Isn't the pastor's role to feed the sheep, not beat them up?". We pray you find these questions interesting and that they help you in your daily life! See you next week!
Raymond asks for clarification of the Great White Throne Judgment. Revelation 20:15 holds great news for believers! Yenni is experiencing great doubt about God's promises after a bout with depression. Why is this happening? Bob encourages her to let the finished work of Christ and the revealed Word of God renew her mind. Steven feels "beat up" by his pastor....shouldn't the Body of Christ be a place of encouragement? We end this week's edition with calls from two men both named Jose' - the first is a believer but remains paralyzed by fear of letting God down. The second Jose' called to encourage him to hold on to the truth of God's love. Thanks for listening!
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!
This edition of Basic Gospel Weekend addresses some deep, thought-provoking questions. Jess asks for clarification on Jesus coming back to bring vengeance on those who don't obey the Gospel. The answer lies in belief and faith. Sab from England asks why God killed and destroyed people in the Old Testament. Martha asks why she hears such conflicting information about sin and wonders what grace really means. Kevin is distraught about all the trials he is going through and wonders why God would allow it to happen. Bob leads Kevin to think about truth - that God loves him and sent Jesus to die for him, not to punish him. Kevin stands today as a forgiven person and can trust God. Peter emails his question about the unpardonable sin - is it rejection of Jesus in the past or a continual rejection? We pray this edition will help you more fully understand the life we have in Christ!
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.
We address questions that are often posed to Basic Gospel in this edition. Nick challenges our position on forgiveness - doesn't God chasten His children when they sin? Don't we need to ask forgiveness? Hazel poses a question about the validity of the 10 Commandments in our life today - don't they still apply? Anthony asks, "How do I keep the joy of the Lord when I am under such stress and pressure in my workplace?" Danny received grace and mercy when he broke the law in his youth. Should he not file charges against those he apprehends in his current job as a security guard? Bob clarifies our position on these issues and gives Anthony and Danny practical, powerful encouragement in dealing with their job issues.
David called seeking information on how to get to know Jesus in a personal way. He feels lost and struggles with unbelief. Bob explains that salvation is not a self-improvement program, it is receiving the life of Christ. We call it "first life, then change". After understanding this issue, David prays to receive the life of Christ! As you listen to David's call, if you join him in receiving the life of Christ, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you resources to help you in your journey of grace!
Our friend, Sab, from the United Kingdom, is concerned about his family and friends who were Hindu. What happened when they died? A powerful and important question to explore. An interesting question from Jennifer - how is the wisdom of God different from the wisdom that Eve desired from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Jerry asks how the leadership of the church be chosen? Peter asks for clarification on rejecting the Holy Spirit - is it your past rejection or future rejection?
We pray you enjoy this edition of Basic Gospel weekend and that it is helpful to you in your journey of grace!
This week we present an overview of what we at Basic Gospel call The Power of 8 - 8 fundamental truths that believers need to fully understand in order to fully experience the grace of God. The 8 truths are:
Also, Mike calls asking how to forgive his wife for past affairs, Joaquin called to speak about the impact of Simple Gospel Simply Grace and asks how to reach out to others with the Gospel message, and Rich called to clear up confusion with his faith. This edition is full of powerful truth for all believers and we pray it will impact your life!
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! We want to walk with you as you discover the grace of God. Contact us at email@example.com.
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!
