Beware Of Ray Comfort's Counterfeit Gospel

Galatians 1:6-8, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

One of the most dangerous FALSE PROPHETS today is Evangelist Ray Comfort. Sadly, this man is honored and accepted in many Baptist churches and Bible colleges today, but he should be avoided and banned as a hellbound infidel. On page 1197 of "THE EVIDENCE BIBLE," Ray Comfort comments on Matthew 7:22-23...
"These are perhaps the most frightening verses in the Bible. Vast multitudes of professing Christians fit into the category spoken of here. They call Jesus 'Lord,' but they practice lawlessness. They profess faith in Jesus, but have no regard for the divine law. They tell 'fibs' or 'white' lies, take things that belong to others, have a roaming eye for the opposite sex, etc. They are liars, thieves, and adulterers at heart, who will be cast from the gates of heaven into the jaws of hell."

Dear reader, Ray Comfort is preaching the Devil's lie of LORDSHIP SALVATION! If what Ray teaches is true, then everyone is going straight to Hell when we die, because everyone still commits sin. If having a “roaming eye for the opposite sex” means that someone is unsaved, then most people are going to spend eternity burning in the Lake of Fire. What Ray is doing is foolishly combining sanctification with justification, and in so doing he corrupts the inspired Word of God and casts stumbling blocks before the people.

Read what Pilgrim's Progress author John Bunyan (1628-1688) wisely wrote:
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —Evangelist John Bunyan
My ministry friend Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold accurately defines Lordship Salvation:
“Lordship Salvation is the unsupportable and unbiblical belief that the performance of good works, the promise of good works, or the evidence of good works, must accompany faith in Christ to establish or provide evidence that such faith has resulted in eternal life.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, “Jesus Versus John MacArthur
Ray Comfort is heretically saying that if you're still living in sin, you're not saved. Kindly said, Ray is a theological LIAR! Friend, EVERYBODY lives in sin, I don't care who you are! The ONLY thing that makes a Christian believer any more righteous in GOD'S SIGHT than convicted serial murderer John Wayne Gacy (1942-1994) is the precious blood of Jesus Christ that washed all our sins away (James 2:10; 1st Peter 1:18-19; 1st Corinthians 6:9-11). Apart from the sin-cleansing blood of the slain Lamb of God, you and I are no more righteous than Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), Al Capone (1899-1947) or Ted Bundy (1946-1990). THANK GOD FOR THE BLOOD OF JESUS!!!

Please beware of Ray Comfort's partial faith in Christ PLUS works counterfeit plan of salvation. Jesus has already paid your debt of sin dear friend, and He doesn't need your help to reform yourself of sin to get to Heaven. The very idea is preposterous!

Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty!

The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.

Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work.

If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from?

A Correct Interpretation of Matthew 7:21-23

I have included verse 21 also...
Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
The correct interpretation of Matthew 7:21-23 is that trusting anything more than Jesus alone (i.e., relying upon what He did through Calvary's cross to save you) cannot produce the new birth which is required to enter into God's Kingdom. John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” The will of God the Father concerning getting saved is that you BELIEVE ON JESUS!!! That's it, that's all, no more.

Sadly, Ray Comfort says that MORE is required. According to Ray you must live a lifestyle of repentance. Please don't take my word for it, read for yourself what Mr. Comfort horribly teaches this woman in this transcript from Living Waters:
“So if the plane goes down, you'd end up in Hell! There are two things you have to do to be saved. Do you remember what they are? I told you what they are—You've got to repent and trust the Savior! ... God's offering you everlasting life upon your repentance and faith in Christ. Who in his right mind wouldn't say, 'Whoa! That's a good offer!' (The curious woman asks what it means to “repent”?)... Have you ever said you're sorry to someone you did something wrong to? That's all repentance is—You've sinned against God; it's a matter of saying, 'God, I'm sorry,' and then LIVING A LIFESTYLE that proves the reality of your repentance. That's what repentance is, it's a continual thing! God, 'I'm sorry, but I'm not going going to lie or steal or blaspheme Your name ever again. It has that attitude! And the second thing—trust in Jesus!” [emphasis added]

Dear reader, I triple-dog dare you to show me even one verse from the Holy Bible that teaches that “LIVING A LIFESTYLE” is required as part of being saved. You cannot! Now my friend, “a double-dog dare” is serious business, but a triple-dog dare is something you don't want to mess around with! I triple-dog dare you to show me even one Bible verse that agrees with these false statements by Ray Comfort.

The Gospel of John is God's Gospel track. John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” PLEASE DON'T MISS THAT! God authored the Gospel of John specifically so “that believing ye might have life through his name.” That means we don't need any other Scripture than what is found in the Gospel of John to be saved. Where in the Gospel of John are we taught that, “LIVING A LIFESTYLE,” is necessary to receive eternal life? You cannot! Mr. Comfort is a bold-faced theological liar! Ray is ADDING to the Gospel, perverting it! This means Mr. Comfort is accursed by God. Galatians 1:9, “As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” I didn't say that, almighty God did!

Furthermore, where in the Gospel of John are we taught that to be saved, we must have a drastic change of attitude that is resolved to reform? Ray errantly says to be saved we must have the new attitude, “GOD, I'M SORRY, BUT I'M NOT GOING TO LIE OR STEAL OR BLASPHEME YOUR NAME EVER AGAIN!” And then he horribly says, “IT'S A CONTINUAL THING!” None of this is biblical! There is absolutely nothing in the Gospel of John about having a sincere desire to reform our ways, clean up our life of sin, turn over a new leaf, do better, forsake the world, turn away from sins, nor any other garbage that false prophets are teaching nowadays in churches, poisoning people with their lies!

Jesus wasn't teaching in Matthew 7:21-23 that you're not saved if you haven't reformed your life! The dear Savior is simply saying that you cannot get into heaven SOME OTHER WAY! John 10:1, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. Kindly said, Ray Comfort is a thief and a robber! Why? It is because instead of simply walking through the DOOR of Jesus (John 10:9), he is trying to climb up some other way into Heaven by turning away from living a lifestyle of sinning, which is WORKS and not GRACE (Romans 4:4; 11:6). Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do.
