John Whitcomb: July 11, 2016

It has been a historic week for Dr. John Whitcomb, who was honored to be on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony to open up the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Ky., on Tuesday.

Welcome back to "Encounter God’s Truth," which features the Bible teaching of Dr. Whitcomb, co-author with Dr. Henry Morris of the book that helped to launch the modern Biblical creationism movement back in 1961—"The Genesis Flood."

That is also the title of the message that we finish today on this Christ-exalting outreach of Whitcomb Ministries. It is our mission to proclaim that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.

From the beginning of his work on that time-honored book—going back to the early 1950s—Dr. Whitcomb really came full circle this week when he helped to open up the Ark Encounter—Answers in Genesis’ life-size reconstruction of Noah’s Ark, located near the Creation Museum.

This message was delivered last month at the Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis before the 96th annual meeting of the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship International. With host Wayne Shepherd, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to both of these organizations for allowing us to share this content with you.
