Raymond boldly but passionately challenges believers to a greater level of commitment and nonbelievers to a renewed life. His words exhort and motivate. The truth about God’s Word is not hidden, as in putting on a spiritual guise of piety without any confrontation, pressure, or hardship from life, but rather clearly made known. His words are different in that he speaks about “the end” and the clear choice each must make. In doing so, he also provides a way out through salvation in Christ. Raymond’s words are not scare tactics but rather a passionate plea in light of Jesus’s sacrifice and the end-time to come.
