John Whitcomb: March 4, 2019

Are you concerned about how you handle God’s Holy Word in this fallen world? On this edition of “Encounter God’s Truth,” Bible scholar Dr. John Whitcomb takes an in-depth look at the eternal nature of that Word, and thus how we are to approach it in the manner it deserves as we go about our ministries. Dr. Whitcomb calls this series “God’s Truth Circles.” It is material he has presented for years, now expanded for broadcast in this format. This timely lesson is called, “The Cost of Compromising Truth.” Later, host Wayne Shepherd asks Dr. Whitcomb how listeners can evaluate the teaching they might hear through all kinds of media and technology to know if it is valuable Biblically. God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! It must be our guide, for it alone can build our faith—and that is why we are excited that you are joining us to learn more about it from Whitcomb Ministries.
