John Whitcomb: May 18, 2020

This week on “Encounter God’s Truth,” we bring you a repeat broadcast in which Bible scholar Dr. John Whitcomb concluded his classic study called “Steering Clear of Shipwreck”—With assistance from host Wayne Shepherd, we present this unique address to increase your confidence that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. Speaking before a group of pastors and church leaders, Dr. Whitcomb wove together principles from a number of texts of Scripture as he confronted us with this probing question: “How is your conscience before God?” Our speaker instructed us as to how we should go about fulfilling our Lord’s Great Commission to reach the entire world with the complete message that He has left us in His all-sufficient Word. We also learn about the personal qualifications needed for anyone who would strive to be part of this endeavor. Whitcomb Ministries invites you to share this faith-building program with all who will listen. We appreciate your participation in this ministry.
