Kill our sinful nature.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

We are to reckon the sinful nature dead to our threefold enemy (the world, the flesh, and the devil) as it hangs with Christ on the cross of Calvary. However, to effectively do this, we need the assistance of the Ten Commandments to kill our sinful nature (see Rom. 7:10,11). The Law sends us to the cross and keeps us there. “You shall not commit adultery” keeps our heart from lust. “You shall not covet” keeps our eyes off this attractive world, etc. See Rom. 13:8–10 for what the Commandments do for the godly.

2 Samuel 18:14 Then Joab said, “I cannot linger with you.” And he took three spears in his hand and thrust them through Absalom’s heart, while he was still alive in the midst of the terebinth tree.15 And ten young men who bore Joab’s armor surrounded Absalom, and struck and killed him.16 So Joab…

Hedonism.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

The godless see pleasure as their primary goal—something called hedonism. They will have no desire to seek after the righteousness that delivers from death until the Law puts salt on their tongue. The moral Law reveals sin and its terrible consequence. It makes a sin-seeking sinner look for a way to be made right with his Creator. It prepares the heart for the gospel.

Isaiah 56:12 “Come,” one says, “I will bring wine, And we will fill ourselves with intoxicating drink; Tomorrow will be tas today, And much more abundant.”

“Do you believe that the following biblical accounts actually happened?”

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

Many years ago, I ran a children’s club. At the end of the club I told about one hundred kids to line up for some candy. There was an immediate rush, and the line sorted itself into what I saw as being a line of greed. The bigger, selfish kids were at the front, and the small and timid ones were at the back. I then did something that gave me great satisfaction. I told them to turn about face. Everyone did. Then I said to stay where they were, and I took great delight in going to the other end of the line and giving the candy to the smaller, timid kids first.

In a world where the rich get richer and the poor get stomped on, we are informed that God has gone to the other end of the line with the message of everlasting life. How has…

“Why did Paul begin his preaching with creation as opposed to the Law?”

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

In Acts 17:16 we are told that Paul was grieved because the whole city of Athens was given over to idolatry. So, in vv. 22–28, he tells his hearers that they had other gods before the God of creation. He is in essence opening up the First and Second Commandments: “I am the Lord your God…You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image” (Exod. 20:2–4). Then, in vv. 29–31, he rebukes them for their idolatry and preaches repentance and future punishment by the Law (God’s standard of “righteousness”). So I wouldn’t say that he began with creation as opposed to the Law. It was what he used to point them to the Law.

Think of how Jesus approached the woman at the well (in John 4). He began to speak to her about water, but then He spoke to her about…

Agnostic = Ignorant

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

“It is amazing how many intellectuals call themselves ‘agnostics,’ not realizing that this is the Greek word for ‘ignorant.’ To be ignorant is a shame when one has the possibility of acquiring knowledge. The Christian religion gives satisfactory answers to the ultimate problems of life.” Richard Wurmbrand, Reaching Toward the Heights 

Psalm 73:22 I was so foolish and ignorant; I was like a beast before You.

Awake, you who sleep!

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

Until God’s Law comes in the hand of the Captain of our salvation (see Heb. 2:10), we are asleep in our sins. It strikes us and says, “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light” (Eph. 5:14). It is God’s Law that causes the sinner to revive and makes him aware of his plight. It reveals to him that he will perish unless God intervenes with His great mercy.

Jonah 1:6 So the captain came to him, and said to him, “What do you mean, sleeper? Arise, tcall on your God; perhaps your God will consider us, so that we may not perish.”

Nothing about us.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

We obtain grace and favor from our King and are given the crown of life (James 1;12), but not because of our beauty. There is nothing in us that draws out the love of God. God loves us because He is love itself.

Esther 2:17 The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.

“Could God create a boulder so heavy that He cannot lift it?”

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

There are many things God cannot do—things related to His character rather than His ability. The Bible makes it clear that God cannot lie. (See Heb. 6:18 comment.) He cannot sin. He also cannot let injustice go unpunished. As for whether God can create a rock that He cannot lift, when it comes to the ability of God, nothing is impossible.

However, this question reveals a lack of common sense. The questioner thinks that if God couldn’t create a rock too big for Him to lift then He is not omnipotent. Then again, we could ask if God could make a square peg and put it into a round hole, and make it fit perfectly. Or, could God make an egg that is not an egg?

These questions are asked to divert attention away from the real issue. But it seems that God had the atheist pegged thousands of years…

Creation reflects the Creator.

Ray Comfort's Daily Evidence

At this moment, your liver, kidneys, heart, pancreas, salivary glands, etc., are all working to keep your body going. You don’t even have the power to switch them off and on. As you sleep tonight, your heart will pump seventy-five gallons of blood through your body each hour.

The focusing muscles in your eyes move an estimated 100,000 times each day. The retina, covering less than a square inch, contains 137 million light-sensitive cells. Even a wide-eyed Charles Darwin said, “To suppose that the eye could have been formed by natural selection, seems I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.”

Creation reflects the genius of the Creator’s hand. Explain how a sparrow knows it is a sparrow and stays with its kind, or how a baby knows to look into the eyes of its mother when no one has taught it to do so. How was a wasp made…
