Using a book containing ‘Weird facts about the Coronation’ Ray Comfort has once again created a cutting edge missionary outreach that is timely and effective… this time around the Coronation of King Charles III. He has also produced an innovative Gospel Tract in the form of a million pound note that was distributed amongst the crowds in London.
Ray is an expert in Christian apologetics and is well known for confronting people on the street with a camera team to share the Gospel in powerful ways. The CEO and founder of Living Waters Christian ministry, he has given away 500,000 hard copies of his book ‘Defender of the Faith: Ten Weird Facts about the Coronation,’ to audiences trying to fathom the complexities of the ancient coronation service.
According to Ray Comfort, the book Defender of the Faith, 10 Weird Facts About the Coronation is controversial because it flies in the face of an increasingly secularised world where many profess atheism and most don’t honour the Bible.
“It’s ironic that during the coronation of King Charles, hundreds of millions around the world essentially went to a two-hour televised church service where they heard many references to the Christian Gospel and the Bible being greatly honoured,” he said.
The author and TV cohost refers to the fact that during the Coronation service, when King Charles was presented with the Bible, the Archbishop of Canterbury said, “Sir: to keep you ever mindful of the law and the Gospel of God as the Rule for the whole life and government of Christian Princes, receive this Book, the most valuable thing that this world affords.”
He adds, “I want people to understand the significance of the things that took place during the Coronation: the meaning behind the presentation of three swords, the diamond-crusted orb, the golden scepter, the ancient coronation chair, the mysterious anointing, the king’s extravagant robes, the amazing crown, etc.”
Coronation Gospel Tract
In addition Ray Comfort’s ministry amassed an army of Christian volunteers who on Coronation Day gave away copies of what looked like a million-pound English note to observers lining the streets of London.
“While the service made numerous references to the Gospel, it didn’t articulate it in layman’s language. So we printed a commemorative ‘million-pound note’ explaining it. ‘Gospel’ means ‘good news’ – that in the Old Testament God promised to destroy death, and in the New Testament we are told how He did it. That’s actually the best news this world could ever hear.”
