For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18 (NKJV)

Imagine for a moment that you are standing on the seashore gazing at a large ocean liner. The sun is shining. There is no wind and the sea is calm. To your amazement, about thirty people suddenly dive off the end of the ship and cling to a lifeboat. You shake your head in disbelief at their foolishness. Then without warning, the great ocean liner strikes an iceberg and suddenly sinks, taking all on board with it.

Those who looked like fools in abandoning the ship were actually wise, and those who seemed wise by staying on board were, in truth, fools. The world scoffs at those who abandon the ship of this world and cling to the lifeboat of the Savior. But Christians know that this great pleasure-cruiser will eventually come into contact with the immovable iceberg of the Law of God, sink into hell . . . and take all those on board with it.

From: The Evidence Bible - Ray Comfort

Same here. I have been listenening to Ray Comfort's teachings on evangelism for a couple of years now. God has done a wonderful work in him. He has a great message for the end time church. How Jesus used the 10 commandments as a goodness test(tutor) to teach men they have a need for a savior. He has tested his God given wisdom on the streets for over 30 years. It has helped me to be a better witness for Jesus. -
