The Way of the Master!

January 10, 2009

Way of the Master (WOTM) is a organization founded and organized by Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, Todd Friel, among others. Way of the Master has a television program, a radio show (now called Wretched Radio), and many other resources. They realize that more than 150,000 people die every 24 hours, and statistics show that only 5% of professing-Christians reach out to those lost. WOTM is trying to equip Christians with the resources they need to be an effective witness for Christ. Here are some +

of the main points they stress in evangelism:

  • Going around the intellect and reaching to the conscience. When people see their sin, and are guilty of it, you can show them God’s salvation. It is easy to get caught up in debating Evolution, the validity of the Bible, and such, but when people are guilty of their sin they will want to be saved from it. Especially when see that their sin has the possibility of sending them to hell.
  • People don’t feel guilty for their sin when they’ve hardened their hearts. So WOTM shows how to soften hearts to the Gospel by showing them God’s Law. A great starting point for showing people their sin is the Ten Commandments.
  • Boldness is a virtue. WOTM shows how easy it is to put off sharing the gospel and the law to “be on peoples’ good side.” It’s easy to forget God’s law and the coming judgement; instead we talk about the Love, Peace, and Joy that we will have when we believe in Jesus.

An illustration they often use is about a guy on an airplane. The flight attendant tells him to put a parachute because it will make his plane ride more enjoyable. The people on the plane laugh at him because he’s wearing the funny, bulky parachute for no apparent reason. He rips it off in disgust because it truly doesn’t make his ride better. On another plane the flight attendant tells a man to wear a parachute because of the 20,000 ft. drop that will be coming. He gladly ignores the mocking of the others because he knows the true reason for his parachute. Unbelievers need to know the true reason for Jesus’ saving grace.

Way of the Master has a great array of resources, including: An awesome DVD course on evangelism, easy-to-give-away Gospel tracts, and their site, www.WayoftheMaster.com, has a huge list of topics that you may need to know while witnessing. Check it out… no really, check it out.

God bless you,
