Dr. John Whitcomb: July 27, 2015

How old is the earth? What population would we expect to find in the world today if the earth is young and was created directly by God as described in the book of Genesis? What technology did Noah and his sons employ in building the ark at the time of the Genesis Flood? And how does the Bible deal with the origin of the so-called races of people? Listen to this edition of “Encounter God’s Truth” for answers to these and other questions from special guest speaker Ken Ham, the president of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. He is continuing his message called, “The Seven C’s of History,” which was first delivered at Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, Wisconsin, which allows us to broadcast it here. Following Ken’s talk, host Wayne Shepherd calls on Bible scholar Dr. John Whitcomb to bring us the first segment of a lesson regarding the rapture of the church. Altogether, this program demonstrates our purpose in a marvelous way. It is to explain that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. Would you please consider telling a friend about our broadcast? Thanks so much for listening!
