Basic Gospel with Bob Christopher, Bob Davis and Richard Peifer

 

Weekend Edition 166

Bob Christopher, Bob Davis and Richard Peifer

If I have been divorced, is it OK for me to remarry? We hear that question time and time again. The Biblical framework for marriage is that a man leave his parents, become one flesh with his wife, and serve one another in love. There is no doubt that divorce is sin and comes from the hardness of the heart. God hates divorce because it brings about all kinds of pain and does harm to everyone involved. However, divorce is not the unpardonable sin. Jesus has removed our sins as far as the east is from the west. If you have been divorced and desire to remarry, commit yourself to building a strong, biblical marriage.

The Grace Guide to Marriage - part 16 - Friday, September 21, 2018

In a follow up discussion about divorce and remarriage, we explore the issue of remarriage. Is there hope for another relationship built on the foundation of Christ Jesus? The answer is a resounding "yes". You are not unworthy because of divorce - you are a child of God who has been divorced. First, figure out what went wrong in your marriage. Go to the Lord and ask him to reveal to you the mistakes that were made. If you find someone you are interested in, it is vitally important to first build a friendship and leave the results up to the Lord. People who are content in Christ can experience the oneness God desires for marriage. Let your remarriage be a reflection of the very love of Christ, the church. With Christ, there is great hope.

The Full Armor of God - Thursday, September 20, 2018

We are talking about winning at spiritual warfare. We will sometimes clash with the world and feel pressured to conform. But, we have the opportunity to stand firm. Ephesians 6:11-13 encourages us to "put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." When you are standing in Christ, you have a sure foundation to withstand whatever the enemy uses to attack you. Standing in truth, being strong in the Lord, we will withstand every onslaught. Stand firm.

Weekend Edition 165 - Saturday, September 15, 2018

Today we take a Biblical look at sex in marriage. Far from dirty, demeaning, and degrading, God created sex to be a beautiful expression of the union of man and woman. If God invented sex, then it must be good. The Bible is also clear that sex is to happen within the bonds of marriage. The world has a much different message which has cheapened sex and made it a very casual activity. But that is far from what God created it to be.
