I learned that Jesus Christ had died for my sins and was raised again so that I might experience God’s forgiveness and new life in Him. At that moment, I turned my life over to Christ. I prayed, “Lord Jesus, if You can change me, come into me and do it. I sure need to be changed."
Is this, then, what Jesus had in mind when He talked of an “abundant life”? No! But if people have never experienced anything different, they will accept their predicament as normal. They will assume “that’s just the way it is."
I knew the Bible frontward and backward, but that knowledge alone didn’t change my condition. In my experience, Jesus got lost in the Bible.
Lord, I don’t care what the organization that I used to be with taught me. I don’t care what the church I’m in or the denomination to which I belong has taught me. I want You to teach me afresh, all over again. I want to know the truth that You promised would set me free. I’m tired of listening to people. I’m ready to listen to You.
More than anything else, I wanted to know more fully the Person of Jesus Christ whom the Bible reveals. I thank God with all my heart that He led me to find what I was looking for—a return to Classic Christianity.
Christianity is not a religion; it’s a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ did not come just to get men out of hell and into heaven; He came to get Himself out of heaven and into men!
The issue in salvation is life and death. Jesus Christ, spiritually alive, laid down His life for us. Why? So that He could give His life to us!
Until you rest in the finality of the cross, you will never experience the reality of the resurrection.
There is only one way to determine your identity that cannot be shaken, one foundation that cannot be taken away from you: “I am a child of God.”
We don’t need a good self-image. We need a proper self-image—one that comes from God’s Word.
The most powerful, life-changing power in existence is the message of God’s unconditional love and acceptance in Jesus Christ.
God will never love or accept you one ounce less or one ounce more than He does right this minute. That’s a truth to build a life on!
The goal of the Christian life is not to stop sinning! It is to start trusting.
To be filled with the Spirit is to be totally filled with the knowledge of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ laid down His life for us, so that He could give His life to us, so that He could live His life through us! That’s the entire gospel in a nutshell.
We must first receive God’s unconditional love and acceptance for us before we will ever learn to love Him in return.
You may not know what will happen to you tomorrow, but you can know that the same Christ who loves you perfectly today is already there.
Listen, open the door of your heart, and discover that Classic Christianity is a Person—the living Lord Jesus Christ.

Tearing Down Walls

Though much hoped for, it was completely unexpected when, in late 1989, the Berlin Wall was torn down. That single event signaled the decline of communism world wide, the replacement of the Soviet regime in Russia, and the fracturing of the Soviet states. The world watched in rapt fascination as the people of these repressed states found the joy their new freedom gave them. Images were broadcast everywhere of the people, families and friends, young and old, climbing past the broken wall into a future where it would never darken their lives again.

That same year, Harvest House published the first edition of Classic Christianity. Though it lacked the immediate clout and attention which the fall of the Iron Curtain gained, none the less, it was just as significant to weary Christians living behind the walls of legalism. Bob George did something relatively unique with his book – he made it personal taking you on the journey that tore down his wall of legalism and led him into new joy and freedom. It has helped Christians tear down the walls of legalism besieging their faith, bringing them the joy and peace which God intended for them.

Our friend Roddy, from the United Kingdom told us this,

"Bob George's book, Classic Christianity, has been an answer to the cry of my heart, delivering me from fear of the judgment of God, healing my broken heart over my past failures, causing me to fall in love with Jesus again, giving me a thankful heart for His grace, and giving me hope for the future. I am addicted to the message of grace and want to learn all I can about it!"

That is what Classic has done on the forefront of the movement away from legalism. It has helped over 600,000 people around the world tear down the walls confining them, and will continue to do so in the lives of others. You can help tear down walls by sharing the Classic message with those around you.

In fact, I would go so far as to say that Classic Christianity represents the purest presentation of the gospel message I have ever read.”
