John Whitcomb: September 30, 2019

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked”! As host Wayne Shepherd reminds us, the fear of God can have a very healthy effect on both believers and unbelievers. That is our focus this time on “Encounter God’s Truth,” with Dr. John Whitcomb continuing his study of “Hypocrisy in the Church.” This Christ-honoring radio outreach of Whitcomb Ministries reminds you each week that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. As we near the end of Volume One of our new series, “Acts: Witness of the Early Church,” we are considering how God worked unique miracles—of both judgment and blessing—through the apostles in Acts 5. The point of this passage is to explain how the Lord was setting the tone to display His authority in His church, and to demonstrate the seriousness with which all people were to take it. The sin nature that each of us possesses is an awful thing, and sin can have horrible consequences. Dr. Whitcomb delivered these messages at the Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, and we thank them for supporting our efforts to broadcast them.
