God Without Religion

How do we break free from self-made religion? How do live life in Christ apart from a bunch of rules? Are we going to put our confidence in the Bible-belt or what the Bible actually says?
* Chadrick asks about the final judgment and the separation of sheep from the goats in Matthew 25. * UNITED October 15-17, 2021 https://basicgospel.net/united/
* What about corporate fasts (and praying for something specific)? My sister-in-law has asked us to fast until noon everyday and pray for her husband in the ICU. Are we just going through the motions?

* “Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?” Galatians 4:8-9

A Whole New Identity

The only way we’ve can be drawn near to God is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Why do we have feelings that we are distant from God when He has taken up residence in us? “Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.” 1 Peter 2:11 * If salvation is by grace alone, why isn’t everyone saved?
* Judas Iscariot was one of the disciples chosen by Jesus, but he betrayed him and committed suicide, should we believe that Judas made it to heaven?
* So many Christians believe that the lost will suffer throughout eternity in hell. Just imagine it! Time with no end. How absurd. What could it possible accomplish?
* Why did it take so long to fully understand God’s grace. Was it the Holy Spirit that revealed this to me?

To Him I Live

How do we overcome the desires of the flesh? “But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16 We’ve learned that real life – meaningful life is found in Christ, learning to enjoy his life forever. We can declare we are dead to the flesh and alive to Christ.
* If Jesus is God, how can you explain John 5:26 where He said that the Father granted Him life?
* Trying to understand the true meaning of the term “anti-nomianism”. Does it apply to true, pure grace believers? * UNITED Conference – October 15-17, 2021 https://basicgospel.net/united/

God’s Desire

God’s desire is for us to be with Him. He’s made the way for us through Jesus Christ. But we continue to struggle in this world. Why do we keep doing the same things over and over again? Is God frustrated with us? Are we far from God? It’s often a Romans 7 trap. Fortunately there is a solution.
* If someone has had a genuine transformation in Jesus can they still get punished for a crime they committed 20+ years ago?
* If a person seeks for a prayer for prosperity should I instead share him about being contented in Christ? * UNITED Conference – October 15-17, 2021 https://basicgospel.net/united/ * Does Jesus chose who his sheep will be? John 10:26

Close to God

There are many ways we come up with to be closer to God. But we don’t have what it takes to get us there. “What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. For I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, ‘You shall not covet.’ … ” Romans 7:7-11 The Gospel draws us near to God and enables us to be close to Him. Close to God both in location and relationship. * UNITED Conference – October 15-17, 2021 https://basicgospel.net/united/ * Is it wrong to drink beer? What about wine?
* Why did Jesus tell us to baptize people in the Great Commission? * Is it okay if I don’t speak in tongues?
* Jesus asks if communion is for Christians only? Is it an exclusive club?

You Belong to Another

“Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God. …” Romans 7:4-5 Once we were apart from God, but in Christ we have drawn near to God and are clean and close. * UNITED Conference – October 15-17, 2021 https://basicgospel.net/united/ * Will the Rapture take place before the antichrist is revealed? * Why is Hebrews 10:24-25 so important to us?
* How do we know what we are asking is according to His will? What’s His will?

Salt and Light

We discuss the 20th anniversary of 9/11. We received a phone call on that tragic day and were asked the question “What if that had been me?” That’s why the gospel message must be proclaimed far and wide. We need a sense of urgency to share the message of Jesus Christ.
* Bob shares from the heart about the division in our world today. Satan uses fear to control and enslave people. Pay attention to what’s going on and stand your ground. Be salt and light in the world and receive Christ Jesus. * Sean shares his thoughts about 9/11 and the fate of those who perished. * Don asks about James 5:15. Is it about believers or unbelievers?

Location and Relationship

Every human being wants to know how to be close to God. Eternal life is defined in John 17:4 – it is knowing Him relationally, from the heart. We are in Christ and Christ is in us. That’s the closeness of location. But there’s another kind of closeness – that of friendship through the heart. That’s the closeness of relationship. * What does it mean to obey God?
* Why did Jesus say “Go and sin no more?”
* How can Jesus breathe the Holy Spirit to the disciples in John 20:22-23 when it is not yet the Pentecost and He had not ascended to Heaven?
* As Gentile Christians living under the new covenant, how are we to honor the day of rest? * How do i live a life in obedience to Jesus?
