John Whitcomb: October 7, 2019

God is very serious about building His church, and He also desires that those who lead it will be committed to purity of life and doctrine. Today on “Encounter God’s Truth,” theologian Dr. John Whitcomb will show from Acts 5 what dramatic action God took at the dawn of the church age to demonstrate the importance of holiness in His church. Dr. Whitcomb is concluding his message called “Hypocrisy in the church,” as he also finishes Volume One of our series, “Acts: Witness of the Early Church.” He closes the message with a sobering exhortation—yet one that definitely reflects the tone that Luke, the author of Acts, set forth as he described this incident that culminated in the premature deaths of Ananias and Sapphira. Host Wayne Shepherd and Whitcomb Ministries wish to express our thanks once again to Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, for recording these messages and granting permission for us to air them here. We trust that they have been a blessing to you—driving you toward the certainty that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.
