The Bible Study Hour
Do you think it's possible to lose your salvation? We often perceive our standing with God to be based on how well we keep His commandments. But on this program, Dr. James Boice shows that legalism does not in fact lead to holiness, and corrects common misunderstandings of the phrase "falling from grace" in Galatians 5.
The Bible never promises that Christians will be materially rich. But Romans 5 does explain how our standing in grace swells our spiritual assets. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Montgomery Boice details four of the great riches we are guaranteed to possess in Christ.
In this country, we have our democracy, our Constitution, and the American justice system. The realities of guilt, innocence, punishment, judgment, and redemption exist in the spiritual realm as well. Dr. Boice teaches on "Justification by Grace Alone."
We know that salvation is by grace alone, but what about good works? Where do they fit in? Dr. Boice explains what he calls the deepest theology - the theology of salvation - by looking at the past, present, and future of salvation from God's point of view.
On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice combats the shallowness of our day by offering a mini course in theology. In an age Boice calls "very introspective and disgustingly subjective," we will discover the wonderful depths of election, redemption, and the application of Sovereign Grace.
Does grace coexist with the law? Clearly, the Old Testament is not graceless, and the New Testament is not lawless. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice lays out the characteristics of the reign of the law versus the reign of grace, which came by Jesus Christ.
Christmas is wonderful! It's a delightful whirlwind of shopping, decorations, family, food, gifts, and parties. Yet, more than all this, Christmas is a spiritual event. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice casts light upon three astonishing miracles of Christmas.
At Christmastime, we like to think of Jesus as the baby in the manger. Yet we must realize that before that little baby was in that manger... he always was! Next time on The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice focuses our eyes on Jesus as the light and life of men - at Christmas and forever.
Why do bad things happen to good people? Are these events outside of God's control? Or, maybe a better question would be - Why do so many good things happen to bad people? Next time on The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice talks about common grace, and why it is so amazing.
Grace is truly amazing, and yet it seems that, over time, grace loses its ability to enthrall. And after many years, amazing grace can even seem like boring grace. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice explains that grace can only be amazing when viewed against the dark background of sin.
None of us can guarantee the choices of the next generation. We can only choose for ourselves whether or not we'll serve the Lord. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice talks about choosing - choosing God now, tomorrow, the day after, and to the very end of our lives.
