Dr. John Whitcomb: August 3, 2015

God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! One way that Whitcomb Ministries explains that theme on this weekly broadcast, “Encounter God’s Truth,” is by answering questions. This week special guest speaker Ken Ham is going to address some very profound questions, such as: How do we share the gospel with today’s culture? Do people in our postmodern world understand what we mean when we talk about concepts such as God, sin, salvation, heaven and hell? And how can we show them that the Bible is grounded in real history? Ken Ham is the president of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter, and we so appreciate Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, Wisconsin, for allowing us to broadcast his message called, “The Seven C’s of History.” Host Wayne Shepherd and Bible teacher Dr. John Whitcomb end the program with the conclusion of a talk about the importance of the doctrine of the pre-tribulational rapture. We trust that this week’s program will be a blessing and encouragement to you!
