I was commenting here...More Disturbing Things about the Duggars
when a reader informed me the Duggars have recently gone "soul-winning" with Ray Comfort. I asked "Why isn't Ray Comfort warning the whole family about Gothard?"
Well I got an answer to my question......
The time with the Duggars starts at around 17:50 in the video.
I know that Ray Comfort has hung out with Doug Phillips of Vision forum and even posted about it here:
Ray Comfort and Doug Phillips of Vision Forum?
So I did some digging and wondered what is the relationship between Gothard and Ray Comfort? Is there one?
What is weird is Ray Comfort says Gothard helped get his first video out...You know the one that made his name for him? Right on the Living Waters website, thanks is given to Bill Gothard.
"1990: The teaching was published in a book called, Hell's Best Kept Secret. 1992: Thanks to Bill Gothard, over 30,000 pastors saw this teaching via video, and the ministry began to grow."Here too, Gothard is credited with help in getting the video out:
Here we see the support of Bill Gothard's ministry. I do not think that is a good list of names, including mostly the compromised and ecumenical. Now that IBLP is on there. This is Bill Gothard's organization.
"Ray Comfort's ministry has been commended by Franklin Graham, Ravi Zacharias, John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Josh McDowell, Dr. Norman Geisler, Bill Gothard, David Wilkerson, Joni Eareckson Tada, and many other Christian leaders. He has written for Billy Graham's Decision magazine and Bill Bright's Worldwide Challenge. His literature is used by the Moody Bible Institute, Leighton Ford Ministries, Campus Crusade For Christ, Institute in Basic Life Principles, and the Institute for Scientific & Biblical Research. He has also written more than 60 books and is a regular platform speaker at Southern Baptist State Conferences. His videos were seen by more than 30,000 pastors in 1992, and he has spoken in more than 700 churches, from almost every denomination."
What do you think of that the fact Ray Comfort's literature is used by Bill Gothard's organizations?
Others have exposed Gothard's endless false teachings.
So sadly, Ray Comfort certainly wouldn't be warning the Duggars about Gothard and ATI or any of his false teachings.
What is sad, is this is a teacher that is accepted more by the mainstream and invited to a slew of evangelical and other churches and he can't even discern the false teachings in Gothardism?
