Secret Service Uses Power to Stop Evangelism!!!

I don't want to encourage this kind of strategy, but I have to confess that this seems like a compelling argument why using tracts that look like $1,000,000 bills does not constitute counterfeiting:
I'm not going to stop printing them," Comfort said. "How can you possibly counterfeit something that is not real – a $1 million bill?
Here's the follow-up story.

The million dollar tracts aside... How do you feel about the method of "law to the proud, grace to the humble?"

Jim,

I'm not sure I'm tracking with you on this one.

Ben,

You said, "I don't want to encourage this kind of strategy"

Were you referring to the million-dollar bill tracts or to the "Way of the Master" strategy promoted by these guys?

They promote using the law (specifically the Ten Commandments) as a "light" to show people their sin and need for a Savior.

I'm not completely convinced of their precise method, but it seems like a good alternative to the typical Southern Baptist/evangelical Gospel, "Get saved and you'll have a better life."

Ok, now I get you. I was talking about the million dollar tracts. I don't know much about "Way of the Master." But I do believe that Scripture teaches that one purpose of the Law is to point people to their sinfulness and need of the gospel.
