John Whitcomb: March 12, 2018

This week on “Encounter God’s Truth,” Dr. John Whitcomb tells the story of his conversion to the Christian faith—showing how numerous lessons that he has learned through the years since that time can be applied to our lives today.

It is a personal and practical look at what God has done in the life of our speaker over many decades—and what he has gained from those experiences that we can utilize in our attempts at evangelism and upholding a Biblical defense of the faith.

Host Wayne Shepherd reminds us that this insightful presentation also reinforces the reality that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. This is latest installment in our series called “Basic Biblical Distinctions,” which was recorded live at Grace Bible Church in Elkhart, Ind. Whitcomb Ministries thanks that congregation for generously allowing us to present these talks here on the radio ministry of “Encounter God’s Truth.”
