John Whitcomb: April 9, 2018

Dr. John Whitcomb concludes his life story, “The Conversion of an Evolutionist,” on this week’s edition of “Encounter God’s Truth.”

He will share more of the account of his own conversion—and principles that he has drawn from that experience that have guided him through the years, and can still encourage us today.

We will turn to Acts 17, where the Apostle Paul proclaimed the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ to the philosophers of Athens on Mars Hill—and to Acts 20, where we see the model that Paul gave us in the city of Ephesus for carrying out the Great Commission.

Dr. Whitcomb first brought this message to the people of Grace Bible Church in Elkhart, Indiana, and with host Wayne Shepherd we are thankful to them for being able to share it with you here on “Encounter God’s Truth.” It is part of our new series called “Basic Biblical Distinctions.”
