John Whitcomb: May 7, 2018

Our purpose on “Encounter God’s Truth” is to proclaim boldly that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end!

Our teacher, Dr. John Whitcomb, is doing that currently in a new series called “Basic Biblical Distinctions.” It was recorded live at Grace Bible Church in Elkhart, Ind., and we thank them for allowing us to broadcast it to you here on radio and the Internet.

We are in the middle of a sermon called “Truth is Greater Than Love.” We are dealing with questions that will have a profound effect upon our Christian lives and ministries—such as how we are to find the balance between truth and love, and how we can truly show love to those we seek to serve. Today, we also consider the issue of Christians who practice truth without love—as opposed to those who seek to exhibit love, but compromise the truth.

With host Wayne Shepherd, Whitcomb Ministries thanks you for listening to this broadcast, and encourages you to share all that you have learned from it with a friend.
