A Matter of the Heart

All roads lead to Philippians 3. It sets the stage for our purpose and reason for being in life. “For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God.” Romans 2:28-29
* Clay calls about Matthew 11:11-15 “For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John, and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. ”
* Ron asks about 1 Corinthians 6:12 “‘All things are lawful for me,’ but not all things are helpful. ‘All things are lawful for me,’ but I will not be dominated by anything.” * I was baptized when I was young. Does that baptism save me.

True Freedom in Christ Alone

A special Independence Day broadcast from Basic Gospel. — I love the 4th of July. It’s a wonderful experience for us as Americans that enjoy this freedom everyday. But on a much deeper level there are many who are looking for freedom in their souls. In John 8:31, Jesus tells us if we hold to his teachings, we will be his disciples. When we hold to his teachings, we will know the truth, and that truth will set us free. Freedom is what Christ has in mind for each and every one of us. This freedom can only come through Jesus Christ. When we come into this freedom, we shouldn’t use it to serve ourselves, but use our freedom to serve one another in love. Are you in bondage to sin? Would you like to be free from that bondage today? Accept Jesus’ words as true, know that He is our savior, and you will be set free from the bondage of sin.

Of First Importance

Here in the United States of America we are celebrating the founding of our nation. It’s a reminder of the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. Let’s look again at the Gospel message. The message matters. Within this message is the wisdom of God, the power of God, and the freedom in God. “Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, and by which you are being saved …” 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

Our Fixed-Point is Jesus

Larry Alex Taunton joins the broadcast today to discuss his newest book, Around the World in More than 80 Days. Bob and Larry look at the question “What’s Happening in America?”. Philosophies are taking root in America today that are changing culture in church, politics, and the corporate arena. We must have a fixed point of morality to stay the course. Our fixed point is Jesus Christ. The church and certainly our culture has moved away from the fixed point leaving people more easily influenced and susceptible to cultural Marxism and the prosperity gospel. The use of language is one way to change the culture. It will be presented as something necessary and good but in fact is exactly the opposite. Knowing the general article (Jesus) will expose those that are counterfeit. * Connect with Larry Alex Taunton: https://larryalextaunton.com

Stability in Christ

“You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:17-18 Our stability in life comes from our knowledge in Christ and his promises to us. * United: https://basicgospel.net/united/
