The Way of the Master is an evangelical ministry created by Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron to train Christians in the art of apologetics and open-air evangelism. This ministry, in cooperation with Comfort's Living Waters Publications, produces a number of training courses, radio and television programs.
Basically the series teaches that people must practise Christianity exactly as Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron tell them and must interpret the Bible exactly as Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron tell them in order to avoid eternal damnation.
The television portion of this ministry airs on 15 Christian networks and has received numerous awards from Christian organizations. While popular among evangelicals, the real "break out" moment for the series was the banana argument from Season 1, Episode 7. A number of internet humor sites carried the clip of Ray declaring that the banana was "the atheist's nightmare", as he considers it an obvious testament to Intelligent Design.
The Way of the Master logo incorporates the letters WDJD, standing for "What Did Jesus Do?". It also contains a reference to Mark 16:15, reading:
- And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Street interviews are a regular feature of the series online though it is unclear to Iron Chariots what criteria the Comfort team use to decide which videos to broadcast or whether those shown on the videos consent to the broadcast.
Even some Christians disagree with Comfort's system of telling eveybody including decent people that they have violated the Ten Commandments. Then Comfort makes decent people feel guilty and makes decent people fear that they are in danger of Hell.
