I’ve really enjoyed Ray Comfort’s ministry.  Early in my Christian life the Lord has used him to teach me a lot about evangelism.  I am grateful to hear his sermon many years ago titled “Hell’s Best Kept Secret.”

Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron has also worked together to produce a video by the same name.  Ray Comfort ministries have made that available recently this month on Youtube!

Here it is:

May God use this to equip more believers in witnessing to people by appealing to people’s conscience and pointing them to their need for a Savior in Jesus Christ!

After watching the video if you want to look up further resources concerning the Way of the Master you may check out the following:

In the middle of our series on “Missions, Culture and Being Biblical” I thought it was good to post this review of a book on sharing the Gospel. Conquer Your Fear, Share Your Faith Evangelism Made Easy

This is a good book for readers who need an introduction to biblical evangelism.  Those who are familiar with Ray Comfort’s book “The Way of the Master” will not find anything radically new in this book but it is a book I still recommend to refresh one’s evangelism method if you subscribe to “the Way of the Master.”  This work features different chapters going back and forth between the author Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort.  The law of God is described and explained as to why it is a powerful tool in evangelism.  Both authors’ joy for sharing the Gospel will leap out of the pages and hopefully will stir the reader to witness.  I appreciate the practical tips and pointers throughout the book.  In particular, the book changed one of the tactics of my evangelism where in the past I use to ask people “Have you ever told a lie?” but now I ask people “In your life time, how many lies do you think you have told?” as a practical way of making someone think more about the severity of their sins with lying; I find the authors’ advice to be helpful because it avoid the hurdle that some people have that a few lies are no big deal.  I also appreciated the personal stories that Cameron and Comfort shared in the book and some of them are stories I haven’t heard of before.  I enjoyed hearing Kirk Cameron’s story of how he came to faith—and also how he discovered the Way of the Master and meeting up with Ray.  I also enjoyed the account of both authors having a meal with Bill Bright, the founder of Campus Crusade and them talking about biblical evangelism towards the end of Bright’s life—and how Bright affirmed the authors concern for a clear Gospel presentation that’s biblical.  It is a good book that I would highly recommend both to veteran evangelists and those new to sharing their faith.  I appreciated also that this book is not just about open air preaching and sharing to strangers—the book also discussed about sharing to family.

I thought this short book by Ray Comfort was good in exposing God’s people to biblical evangelism.

Towards the end of last year, I reviewed this book here in which I later found out that Ray Comfort was giving one free copy to those who request for it here.  Today, while I was going to order a copy for a brother in our church I found out that Ray Comfort’s ministry has made this into a free PDF for download!

After much debating that has been going on regarding the use of the Ten Commandments in evangelism, Dr. MacArthur has responded to Evangelist Ray Comfort in regards to Pastor Jesse Johnson’s seminar at the 2012 Shepherds’ Conference.

If you are interested in listening to the seminar Pastor Jesse gave, here is the link:

The Way (s) of the Master

Also, while Pastor Jesse was giving his seminar, Dr. Richard Mayhue also gave a seminar that covered the Ten Commandments.  Here is the link to that:

Still Written in Stone?

After reading many posts regarding this matter and seeing the different views, I am thankful to both Evangelist Ray’s and Pastor Jesse’s conversations regarding evangelism. I have learned much from both men.  I pray that anyone involved in this discussion would be teachable, humble, gracious, and not militant regarding this matter.  It would be a disaster if there was division over this matter.

As a result, it is critical that we admit where we are weak at; and be willing to receive correction when we are wrong.

Our allegiance is not to a script, man, well known ministry, or a prolific well-known Christian, but to the Word of God.

With that said, please read Dr. MacArthur’s response to Evangelist Ray and please feel free to share your thoughts on this matter.

As we shared earlier, this year’s recommended Christmas Christian Book List on Christian Worldview and Apologetics Discipleship also includes a book on Biblical evangelism by Ray Comfort.  Be sure to check out other books we suggested.  Below is my review of “God Has A Wonderful Plan for Your Life: The Myth of the Modern Message”

Purchase: Amazon

They say one should not judge a book by it’s cover–but with this book by Ray Comfort, the cover speaks volume, illustrating while the irony and tension of the unbiblical nature of the contemporary Evangelical evangelism method of saying “God has a wonderful plan for your life” with the picture of the stoning of the first Christian martyr Stephen. The contrast of Biblical teaching of evangelism and the modern “God has a wonderful plan for your life” message couldn’t be ever capture more beatifully in picture–and pictures are worth a thousand words. Contrary to what many Christians might say today when they evangelize, the Bible does not promise a wonderful plan for the non-believer’s life…as the nonbeliever would understand or plan it. Against this “genie in the bottle” gospel, Ray Comfort brings out the teaching concerning the use of the law in sharing the gospel. Comfort’s work communicates this “Way of the Master” well: He is to the point, clear, sprinkle with use of Scripture and use many illustrations to explain what he means. The current evangelical landscape is so filled with bad popular approach to evangelism that I know many are hostile hearing about the use of the law in evangelism. I am always amazed at how winsome Ray Comfort is in articulating the biblical method of evangelism despite many who are upset with this method. Many of the content will be familiar in this book for those who are familiar with Ray Comfort’s other work or videos. What I like was the appendix–which addresses those in Campus Crusade who recognize that this “God has a wonderful plan for your life” line is one popularized by Campus Crusade. Comfort makes the good case with documentation from CCC’s founder Bill Bright, that towards the end of his life, Dr. Bright would be in agreement with the use of the law in evangelism and the need to do so. Very valuable appendix.

Should Christians participate in Halloween?

As a Christian, I do not think dressing up and wearing things that glorify death, murder, violence, the occult and the magical is a thing that glorifies God.

As a Marine who have seen death and gore in Iraq, I’m sometimes more shock at people wanting to glorify such gory violence and think it is neat.

However, I think someone knocks on your door, that’s a God-given opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus–that we are sinners, that Jesus died for those sins of those who would trust in Jesus as LORD and SAVIOR, that this is by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone–whether they are Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons and people selling you something.

Thus, I believe Halloween is a great time to give out candies–and the Gospel by giving them gospel tracts.

This is a great opportunity to share the Gospel!  This is a picture of what we are doing:
