Dr. John Whitcomb: September 21, 2015

God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. We know that—but how do we convince other people who do not believe it? That is our focus in a brand new series of messages here on “Encounter God’s Truth.” They were originally recorded live as Dr. John Whitcomb delivered them to a conference at Appalachian Bible College in Mount Hope, West Virginia. Today, Dr. Whitcomb begins a sermon entitled, “Basic Biblical Answers.” We are considering the profound issue of how we must present the Bible to non-believers in this postmodern, post-Christian culture. Our teacher opens by using illustrations from the disciplines of science and history to exemplify the challenges that evolutionists face, which we must probe as we proclaim the gospel to those who do not yet believe in Christ. Please join along with host Wayne Shepherd as we open this series on “Biblical Apologetics.” This would also be a great opportunity to share our program with a believing—or unbelieving—friend.
