John Whitcomb: March 19, 2018

Can you imagine how insights acquired in a field artillery battalion at the Battle of the Bulge can instruct us regarding the proper use of Biblical apologetics? Dr. John Whitcomb takes us back to Belgium, in December of 1944, to make this connection for us in a simple yet profound way. It is part three of his testimony, called “The Conversion of an Evolutionist.” Dr. Whitcomb is using illustrations from his own life to show us how God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end—and to teach presuppositional apologetics. Host Wayne Shepherd sets the stage for the third part of this important message, as we continue our brand-new series on “Basic Biblical Distinctions.” Dr. Whitcomb first presented this sermon to the congregation at Grace Bible Church in Elkhart, Ind. Whitcomb Ministries thanks this church for allowing us to broadcast it through the radio ministry of “Encounter God’s Truth.”
