The Law Of The LORD is Perfect in Converting the Soul, why evangelize any other way?

A discussion about evangelism can get many opinions.
I have had many discussions lately about using the law [10 commandments] in evangelism.
Psalm 19:7 says "The Law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple."
Paul wrote " What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! I would have not known I sin except through the law. ---" [Romans 7:7]
Galatians 3:13 says "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law."
We use the law to begin evangelism. People need to know what they are convicted from-which is sin-then they are humbled and see the need for salvation-and a Savior.
But their is a curse and it is the consequences of our sin in breaking the law.
We must know we are sinners needing to be saved.
And thanks be to God Jesus Christ saves us from our sins.
Galatians 3:13 further says "having become a curse for us, as it is written cursed is anyone who hangs on a tree."
Jesus used the law in evangelism. [Matthew 19:16-22]
I think I will use the law then in evangelism.

Georgia Bulldog coach Mark Richt has a radio talk show.
Fans call in to give advice disguised as questions. They know football, they think, more than this championship coach.
The LORD is sovereign and gives COMMANDMENTS.
King Jesus used the law - the commandments in evangelism.
If a coach can get frustrated with fans- then how much more will THE KING be frustrated when we know a better way to evangelize.
The Law of the LORD is perfect, in converting the soul" [Psalm 19:7]
If the law is perfect in conversion of sinners to saints I guess I can not improve on evangelism technique.

In Christ Alone!
