John Whitcomb: April 16, 2018

How are we to minister and teach the Bible in a world filled with error, confusion and compromise—a world of unbelief? With whom should we identify ourselves in Christian ministry, and how do we handle the rejection of the gospel? How can we be involved in both protecting and perpetuating the revelation that God has given to us in His Word? And how does God expect us to handle His Word in a world of professing believers who do not all agree on the Bible’s meaning? How can we genuinely help people that we love? Dr. John Whitcomb begins to answer those questions today on “Encounter God’s Truth” with a message on “God’s Truth Circles.” It is from our new series called “Basic Biblical Distinctions.” This theme of “God’s Truth Circles” is a paradigm that Dr. Whitcomb has developed and taught over many years to help his students cultivate a greater understanding of both theology and its proper application in practical ministry. Of course, it is based in the reality that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. With host Wayne Shepherd, we thank Grace Bible Church in Elkhart, Ind., where Dr. Whitcomb first delivered these messages, that we are able to bring them to you here on “Encounter God’s Truth.”
