John Whitcomb: February 24, 2020

This week on "Encounter God's Truth," our tribute to Dr. John Whitcomb turns toward his influence on the modern Biblical creation movement. First, host Wayne Shepherd replays an answer from Dr. Whitcomb regarding his friendship with Dr. Henry Morris, the co-author of The Genesis Flood. Then we hear from a tribute written to honor Dr. Whitcomb by Answers in Genesis founder Ken Ham, and we also go back to listen to Ken interview Dr. Whitcomb in 2015 from high above the construction site of the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky. Finally, we conclude with Biblical teaching by Ken on the relevance of Genesis for today’s world. Credit for the audio used in this program goes to Answers in Genesis, and also to Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, Wisconsin, and we thank them for allowing us to use these recordings. They display once again our belief that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! Thanks for listening to this special edition of “Encounter God’s Truth” from Whitcomb Ministries.
