Ray Comfort claims he wants to save atheists from hell. However, his actions and words would suggest otherwise. He markets to his target audience of fundamentalist Christians via social media by using divisive, tribalistic and utterly deceptive propaganda pitching atheists (and 'evolutionists') as immoral, foolish and insane. His then sits back and watches while atheists (or even kind Christians) try to defend themselves against his tribe of loyal followers who seem intent on labelling anyone who believes differently, demonic or satanic. If Ray Comfort were to use the same language he directs towards atheists, towards a religious group, he would be indicted for hate speech. If Ray Comfort was trying to save people from hell, he would not be inciting hatred.

This group did not spend one cent of his earnings last year on charity. His books and videos seem to be produced with the sole intention of making money and publicity for his ministry.

Ray does not understand the first thing about science but yet continuously lies about it to substantiate his claim that evolution is not science.

This group is headed by a man who claims
'‘I hate wars and religion and all the stuff that comes with it’
‘Religion, oh. It’s horrible’
and yet is quite happy to sit back and reap the tax benefits of being classed as a religious organisation.

This group is a slick, marketing campaign with no moral fibre.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Donate a significant proportion of the earnings to charity. Stop lying about science to appeal to the market. Spread love, not hate in the name of Jesus.

This organisation is a scam, defrauding vulnerable people with deliberate falsehoods and anti-scientific rot.

Details of exactly where the money goes is detailed on this video - most of it is straight into their own pockets: http://youtu.be/cd5ZiRbKbC8

There are many worthy Christian organisations to support. This is not one of them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close it down.

Living Waters passionately believes in their mission. Each person I have met in this organization is dedicated to the message they present. I am encouraged by their desire to be current in their products while at the same time remaining rooted in the Word of God. Being involved in a similar ministry I am challenged to keep up with their ever-increasing level of professionalism.

Living Waters is an excellent non-profit that actually performs the ministry it claims to. I have never felt as though I had wasted a donation to them as I knew it would be used for the furtherance of the Gospel. Their training is life changing and their love of the Gospel is awe inspiring. You will not go wrong by donating to this ministry.

For over a decade Living Waters has been instrumental in educating Christians in the area of evangelism. By utilizing modern media tools and techniques they have successfully engaged and instructed a whole new generation to defend and share their faith in Jesus Christ. I have found their resources to be easy to understand and use and their theology to be sound and scriptual. What a wonderful blessing they have been!

Evangelism is something every Christian should do, but unfortunately many do not. As a Christian I struggled with sharing my faith for many years. After being trained in evangelism with Living Waters resources and materials, God turned my life around and I am no longer afraid to talk about Jesus Christ to unbelievers. I now actually lead evangelism teams at my church! It's amazing to me. I believe in what Living Waters Publications is doing, so strongly that I am currently working as a full time staff member with LWP. After working with Ray and the other leaders here, I can honestly say that they are genuinely committed to teaching the Christian world how to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Living Waters is a trustworthy ministry proclaiming the gospel of saving grace found only in the Lord Jesus Christ. For those who have posted one star, it should be noted that they are not followers of Jesus Christ and therefore do not understand the ministry and mission of Living Waters. God bless Ray Comfort and all who work at Living Waters for their tireless efforts to reach the lost with the gospel. The ministry outreach of the 180 movie (180movie.com) has saved lives of unborn babies and convicted sinners of their need for a Savior. I do not work FOR Living Waters, but I have worked WITH Living Waters on ministry outreach. They are good stewards of the financial support that donors provide.
