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!
We begin this broadcast with a call from Peter asking if someone doesn't believe in the 6-day creation story, can they really be saved? Louise is in a season of "bad news". She is worried and wonders if God is mad at her. Bob reminds her that God is bigger than her anxiety and bigger than her worry and reassures her that God is not mad and that He desires to carry her anxiety and worry. Janelle is deeply disappointed in the church body who has not reached out to her in the midst of a family emergency. Finally, Bruce asks if the Holy Spirit is being taken away from our country. These calls highlight the importance of having a live, call-in broadcast so that people can receive insight and encouragement in the trials of life. Enjoy this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend!
This week we hear from Eugene who wonders how he is qualified to share the message of Christ when he still struggles with sin. Rose asks for help in releasing long-held anger towards a friend. She worries that God won't forgive her if she can't forgive her friend. Brad called to encourage listeners that they truly can know and experience life in Christ. He reminds us of Hebrews 12:2, "keep your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith". Ralph asks if we are still bound by the 10 Commandments. Andrew explains that the law is not dead - but, as believers, WE are dead to the law. Andrew says, "If you are flirting with the Law, you are cheating on Jesus. Jesus Christ is enough for us." And, finally, Richard Peifer shares his thoughts about freedom. Everything in the world tries to drive us back to bondage. But, we have freedom in Christ! Enjoy this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend!
This week we meet Calvin who is experiencing anxiety because of his fear of death. He describes himself as "like a tornado - all twisted up". Next, Allen calls with a heartfelt grief and concern for all the children who have died, whether by abortion or other causes. He wonders if they have eternal life. Steve asks about the judgment seat of Christ - if all our sins are forgiven, why is there a judgment seat? We end this edition with Linn who wants to know the true difference between a believer and a non-believer. Hint - it's a matter of the heart! Enjoy this edition of Basic Gospel Weekend!
