"Paul writes to Timothy about people spreading false doctrines. And he tells him: "The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith." 1 Timothy 1:5 First and foremost it gives us a pure heart. Our old heart has been cut away and we've been given a new heart. We also have a good conscience so that we can serve the living God and a sincere faith. * Does the crown of thorns represent sin and suffering? * Join us for The Simply Grace Conference - https://basicgospel.net/events * How do I talk to Muslims? Why is Islam is such a big religion? * A Facebook viewer writes: Now, I'm able to let Jesus live through me and don't have the pressure to preform for God. It's a beautiful thing. * Is there a reason that Romans 7:25 uses "Lord" instead of "Savior"? * I'm confused between Christian religions. I'm trying to find truth.

About Bob Christopher, Bob Davis and Richard Peifer
Bob Christopher: Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Bob grew up in a Christian home and received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 13. During his high school and college years, Bob’s deepest desire was to be “God’s guy” and yet he struggled with the question of how to live the Christian life.
His "roller-coaster" experience in living the Christian life eventually led him to a bible study where he discovered what he was missing—the life of Jesus Christ.
Bob says: “Salvation isn’t a self-improvement program. Salvation is receiving and experiencing new life altogether. It’s a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ based on His love and truth”.
Bob Davis: In the summer of 1977, at the age of 33, Bob Davis met the living Christ and invited Jesus to take control of his life. Much of his first five years in Christ found Bob attending Bible conferences and seminars, listening to Christian radio, and performing volunteer ministry services.
Bob spent many years in the fields of broadcasting and audio production for Christian radio and as a result of this work, the message of grace penetrated his heart and he embraced his new life in Christ.
Bob says: “I thank God I’ve had the opportunity to serve these many years. It has been an incredible journey of learning, growth, and opportunity for ministry.”
Richard Peifer: Born in Riverside, California and raised in the Seventh-day Adventist church, Richard grew up with a keen understanding of and desire to keep The Law. Even with a degree in Ministerial Studies, Richard had to face the truth – he knew lots of theological and biblical facts, but there was no reality of the abundant life Jesus promised. He left ministry and spent the next twenty-six years in the high tech industry.
During this time, Richard and his wife, Lois, studied to discover what they really believed. The more Richard learned about the love and grace of God, the more he wanted to help others leave the bondage of legalism and rest in the finished work of Christ Jesus.
Richard says: “This statement by James Ryle has been the undergirding message of my ministry: Grace is the empowering presence of God, enabling me to be who He has called me to be and to do what He has called me to do.”
Andrew Farley: Andrew is a member of the Basic Gospel board of directors, senior pastor of Ecclesia: Church Without Religion in Lubbock, Texas, and bestselling author of five Christian books. Andrew is a weekly contributing host of Basic Gospel and shares the life-changing message of the finished work of Jesus Christ in a calm, sometimes comical, always passionate way.
Andrew says: “Basic Gospel Radio proclaims the finished work of Jesus Christ and the beautiful, liberating implications of what it means for us to live under God’s new covenant of grace.”
