As a former Protestant, I use to listen to the Way of the Master Radio habitually. I have probably logged hundreds of hours of listening time with the Way of the Master Radio and later Wretched Radio with Todd Friel, for which I use to have an online account. In fact, I still have a bunch of their DVD’s that I purchased a while back. I say all of this by way of preface in order that it might be established I know a lot about the Way of the Master and Wretched Radio. I must say Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron and Todd Friel are very good people with sincere intentions and their zeal for what they understand to be truth should be applauded and imitated by all Catholics.
It seems to me that they sincerely care about the souls they evangelize but they are sincerely wrong on some doctrinal issues, and especially on their view of Catholicism. For example, Ray Comfort in one of his videos on-line, found here, says that Catholics are not Christians. His proof that Catholics are not Christians is that some Catholics speak of themselves in opposition to Christians. Basically, Ray Comfort proves that Catholics are not Christians by referencing ignorant Catholics who do not know that Catholicism is a form of Christianity. This raises a question: should apologists for a particular faith use the worst resources that a different faith has to offer in order to refute that faith or should an apologist use the best resources that a different faith has in order to refute what they believe? For example, as a Catholic, I would find it unfair for a Catholic apologist to refute Protestantism based upon the comments of a lapsed Protestant. It is only fair to use the best resources Protestants have to offer, such as catechisms, confessions or other official publications in order to refute Protestantism. Likewise, it seems unbecoming of people, such as Ray Comfort, who use ignorant Catholics they meet on the street as a standard to refute Catholicism. I hope they will realize that they need to have higher standards in their refutation of Catholcism and will consider using offical resources of the Catholic Church in order to attempt to refute it in the furture.
As a side note, the matter of whether or not Catholics are Christians in and of itself is hardly worth addressing and suffice it to say, if Catholics aren’t Christians, where were the Christians before the Protestant Reformation, which gave rise to Ray Comfort’s sect?
