Ray Comfort – what's wrong with his gospel?

Still as popular as ever (Lk 6:26), Ray Comfort calls his company ‘Living Waters’, but is it?

  • Ray Comfort is a deceiver, selling a false gospel. No one has ever received eternal life by attempting to keep the law, and no one ever will. Jesus did not die for us to open the path for us to save ourselves by law keeping.

    Galatians 2:21: I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

    • Yes, these people are enemies of the gospel of Christ…

  • Salvation is as simple as the conversion of the thief on the cross. What did the thief do just before he became saved?

    He saw that he was a sinner:

    (Luke 23:39-41a) And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds:

    He saw that Christ was righteous:

    (Luke 23:41b) but this man hath done nothing amiss.

    He confessed the Lord Jesus with His mouth (out of a believing heart) when he said “Lord…”

    (Luke 23:42a) And he said unto Jesus, Lord,

    He asked the Lord Jesus to remember him when He comes into His kingdom:

    (Luke 23:42b) remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

    That was it. He simply saw himself as he truly was (a sinner), he saw Christ as he truly was (the sinless Son of God), and he asked the Lord Jesus to remember him when He comes into His kingdom.

    That was it. Jesus’ response was:

    (Luke 23:43) And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    It was as simple as that.

    To come to Christ is to stop trying to be righteous enough to inherit eternal life, and to see yourself as you truly are…an ungodly sinner who has already sinned greatly and fallen short of perfection, and who desperately needs a Savior. We come to Christ seeing ourselves as ungodly and unable to fulfill the law. Salvation (eternal life) is a gift that is by grace. Grace is unmerited favor. Only faith can access God’s unmerited favor. Faith is the antithesis of the works of the law. Calvinists don’t see that faith is never a work done to merit anything, regardless of source. They don’t see that there is no “glory” to “give” to God because faith is never a work, regardless of source. Faith is the antithesis of works of the law. There are no warnings against faith potentially being a work if it comes from man, in the Bible. There are no verses that say that saving faith is a “gift” of God, in the Bible. Again, all faith accesses is God’s grace (unmerited favor). Faith is the act of trusting entirely in the atoning work of another on your behalf, to receive favor that you can’t merit. Only Jesus was able to live that totally sinless life.

    • Sean, thank you for your comment, I apologize, but you were in my spam folder. I saw I had seven comments in there (yours was the only ‘real’ post). People can’t seem to accept the simplicity that is in Him. We can’t seem to help in our flesh to try to earn something…

      • The thief also feared God. I should have mentioned that.

        • Yes, fear in the KJV means he was in awe of, in reverence of Jesus as God, he knew and believed on who He was, as we see by the thief calling Jesus Lord (God the Messiah) and realized He had a kingdom (when You come into Your Kingdom) and that meant he had to have believed that Jesus would rise again from the dead.
