This teaching by Ray Comfort did more to transform my understanding of biblical evangelism than any other teaching. if you want to learn what it means “to be a Christian” and how to effectively share the Good News of Christ, I HIGHLY recommend that you listen to this and visit Ray’s Way of The Master training center.
Sadly there is a lack of teaching on the subject of true and false conversion within the contemporary Church. Yet the Bible is full of instruction on this vital subject.
Through this course you will learn about:
- The cause of a false conversion.
- The incredible key that unlocks the mystery of all the parables.
- The six characteristics of a false convert.
- The factor that proves the genuineness of a true convert.
- Why a genuine convert will stand no matter how great the adversity.
- Why the Apostle Paul was “exceedingly joyful” in all of his tribulation.

A sinner’s _____________ is in agreement with God’s law.
All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.) This will take place on the day when God will judge men’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.
