Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Case in point, watch this very disturbing video clip (here's an audio backup in case the video is taken down). Here's an article I wrote refuting Ray Comfort's damnable heresy! Ray Comfort and his Hollywood actor sidekick, Kirk Cameron, operate Living Waters and The Way Of The Master ministries in California. In the heretical video, Ray pressures the unsaved woman to “live a lifestyle that proves the reality of your repentance.” Folks, that is NOT the grace of God! That is NOT the free gift of eternal life.
Kindly said, Ray Comfort should have told that unsaved woman that if she sees herself as a needy sinner, all she has to do to be saved is BELIEVE! The woman openly admits in the video that she believes Jesus is the Son of God who died on the cross, but she doesn't get saved because Mr. Comfort perverts the Gospel. Ray lied to her, convincing her that “more” (he even uses the word “more”) is required than simply coming to God as a needy sinner.
In addition, Ray foolishly tells the woman that she must turn from her sins, and then live a lifestyle of turning away from her sins, to get to Heaven. Since she knows that she cannot forsake her sins (which NO ONE can), she is obviously confused and not ready to commit to what RAY (NOT GOD) is asking of her. At the end Ray asks her if she'd like to get saved (according to his perverse plan of salvation), to which she reasonably replies:
“Well I don't need to think about it, I just need to do it I guess, but I don't even know how to do it.” —Evangelist Ray Comfort, “I've never killed anyone” (MP3 clip from video)
Of course she doesn't know how to do what Ray just said, because none of it makes any sense! The Gospel makes perfect sense. You are a sinner (Romans 3:23)! No amount of good you may do can erase the bad things you have done in the past (Isaiah 64:6). Even one sin is enough to send you to Hell forever (James 2:10). Therefore, you need a Savior (John 1:29).
Jesus Christ paid your sin debt on the cross (2nd Corinthians 5:21). The Gospel means 'Good News.' It is the 'Good News' that Jesus DIED, was BURIED and RESURRECTED three days later from the dead (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Jesus paid our debt of sin with His precious blood. Christ died in our place on the cross, paying a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay. Christ died, that's history; Christ died and rose for me, that's salvation! Eternal life is a free gift from God (Romans 6:23). Jesus paid the high price of our redemption with His blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). You simply BELIEVE the Gospel to be saved!
Kindly said, if Ray Comfort had simply presented the Gospel properly to that lost woman on the airplane—explaining that she is a guilty sinner in God's sight (Romans 3:19), and then shared the 'Good News' of Jesus' crucified, buried and bodily risen for her, and then simply asked her if she believed it as her own—I guarantee you that she WOULD HAVE received Christ right there and then!!!
Instead, Mr. Comfort perverted the Gospel of free grace by adding an extra requirement for her to clean up her life of sin, and to commit to living a reformatory type of lifestyle for the rest of her life. WHAT A FALSE PROPHET! WHAT A SATANIC PLAN OF DAMNATION!!! WHAT A SAD TRAGEDY!!! Ladies and gentlemen, I am so sick and tired of this demonic Lordship Salvation heresy! Pastor Jack Hyles was sick of it too (MP3 clip). Dr. Hyles is right—DO GOODERS don't go to Heaven, DO TRUSTERS go to Heaven!!!
