John Whitcomb: February 28, 2019

On today’s edition of “Encounter God’s Truth,” author and theologian Dr. John Whitcomb continues his series on “God’s Truth Circles.” The topic this time is, “Practicing Truth in Love.” Dr. Whitcomb is going to show us how love can enhance our ministry of truth—for which each believer will be evaluated at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Yet, at times, love also requires us to confront error—when that is necessary for the spiritual health of a Christian brother or sister. We bring you this kind of teaching each week to encourage you with the fact that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! After the lesson, host Wayne Shepherd asks Dr. Whitcomb to clarify how Christ intended to institute division rather than peace during His earthly ministry. Our teacher responds with a heartfelt illustration from his own life.
