John Whitcomb: September 19, 2016

This week on Encounter God’s Truth, Dr. John Whitcomb discusses how we need to prepare our own hearts before we attempt to show others that the Bible is true.

I’m your host Wayne Shepherd, inviting you to stay with us for Part Two of a message called “The Need for Christian Evidences.”

Dr. Whitcomb takes us to 1 Peter chapter 3, which states:

“In your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that,when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.”*

Dr. Whitcomb has many years of experience in teaching the Bible and apologetics, and you can find much more about that when you visit us online at WhitcombMinistries.org.

We begin today with some review from last time, as our speaker explains what he began to learn about witnessing in the years following his own conversion.

So here’s Dr. Whitcomb now with the conclusion of his message: “The Need for Christian Evidences.”
