Dr. John Whitcomb: September 14, 2015

We are “Looking Back—Looking Forward”—this week on “Encounter God’s Truth.” Host Wayne Shepherd guides us back through the first four years of our program, beginning with his first question to Dr. John Whitcomb, when Wayne asked him why he had decided to begin a radio ministry at 87 years of age. Next, we hear a testimony from Dr. John MacArthur regarding the impact of “The Genesis Flood,” given at the 50th anniversary of this book in 2011.

Those who listen to this program regularly know that we often end up coming back to the core subjects of Dr. Whitcomb’s teaching on creation, the Genesis Flood, Bible prophecy and apologetics—all in our quest to proclaim that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. Thus, we close this special broadcast with a portion of a classic message on the Genesis Flood—first delivered at Grace Baptist Bible College in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. If God allows and Christ tarries His return, we hope to bring you a much bigger celebration next year for the fifth anniversary of this radio ministry. As always, thanks for listening!
