1. Hell’s Best Kept Secret
This session highlights the decline in effective evangelism due to neglecting the use of God’s law, exemplified by Jesus, to convict sinners of their need for grace and salvation. By presenting the law humbly to the proud and offering grace to the humble, evangelists can bring sinners to repentance and acceptance of the Gospel.
This session discusses atheism, the evidence for God’s existence, and the limitations of human knowledge. It emphasizes that proving God’s existence is not the ultimate goal in evangelism, but rather showing sinners their need for repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
3. Militant Evangelism
Ray Comfort stresses the significance of understanding the objectives, weapons, and enemies in spiritual warfare for Christians. He urges believers to seek and save the lost, relying on the Word of God and prayer as their weapons, while being aware of the threefold enemy of the world, the flesh, and the devil, with zeal for evangelism stemming from gratitude for Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.
4. True and False Conversion
This session highlights the problem of backsliders and false conversions in modern evangelism due to a failure to properly understand and apply the Gospel. Ray Comfort discusses the characteristics of false converts and emphasizes the importance of producing fruit-bearing Christians rather than merely seeking decisions for Jesus.
5. How to Get on Fire for God
This session stresses the responsibility of Christians to evangelize and outlines four qualifications for effective evangelism: relying on God’s power rather than human eloquence, embracing weakness and fear, and having a deep sense of trembling before God. Ray Comfort also highlights three principles for being on fire for God: faith in God’s promises, motivating love for God, and a compelling compassion for the lost, encouraging genuine care and fervent witness for Christ.
