A Message From Jack Chick

Into the Lake of Fire

Into the Lake of Fire

HOT from the website of Jack Chick, we bring you this inspirational article from their newsletter: Battle Cry. It’s titled A Message From Jack Chick.

But first, we’d like to remind you of some earlier posts we’ve written about this creationist sage. Be sure to check out Creationist News From Jack Chick, and don’t miss Creationist Comic Books from Jack Chick.

Okay, with no further introduction, here are some excerpts from Jack Chick’s message, with bold font added by us:

For the unsaved, there must be deep-seated despair in their hearts, with states going bankrupt, delayed tax refunds, elections in turmoil, confusion and dread of what’s coming. Movies showing the end of the world, worries about the Mayan calendar ending in 2012 — it can be described in a few words: “What a Mess!”

Yes, despair is the word for it — especially regarding the Mayan doomsday prediction. Let’s read on:

Satan is having a great time. After all, the world’s system is his. He claimed this when he tempted the Lord Jesus. The devil showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them and said: “All these things will I give thee if thou wilt fall down and worship me,” (Matthew 4:8-10). God gave Satan this position until Jesus returns and rules from Jerusalem.

We’re familiar with that. Here it is in the King James version:

[Matthew 4: 8-9] Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

And here it is again:

[Luke 4: 6] And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

As you can see from a literal reading of the text, that was quite a mountain. From its lofty peak, one could see the whole of the flat earth at one time. The most remarkable thing is that these words were written around three centuries after the Greeks had worked out not only the shape of the globe, but also its size. See spherical Earth. And then see Eratosthenes and the Size of the Earth.

Let’s get back to Chick’s message:

Today, Satan has the world glued to their televisions, lost in sports, games, or watching everyone arguing about the cares of this world. But, as believers, we have the advantage of knowing that Jesus is coming soon. However, there is going to be lots of blood on our hands if we don’t share the Gospel.

Are you taking notes? Good. We continue:

Hopeless teens are everywhere hiding from reality by using drugs, sex and thinking of suicide. They block out the world with cell phones, texting or playing video games, because they dread their hopeless future. …

A sad situation indeed. Here’s one final excerpt:

Beloved, are you still planting or passing along three tracts a day? If not, shame on you! Call us or visit http://www.chick.com to see our new material. After all, we are printing the best possible tracts we can, just for you. We can’t reach them all without your help. We’re counting on you and so is the Lord.

There you have it, dear reader. You know what you have to do. To save you some time, we”ll repeat our list of Chick’s creationist tracts:

In The Beginning, followed by There Go The Dinosaurs, and you must see the very influential Big Daddy? Here’s another one about teaching evolution: Apes, Lies and Ms. Henn.

Read them online. Then buy them by the hundred and pass them out. The fate of the world depends on it. That’s the message from Jack Chick.

  1. Satan is delaying my IRS tax refund? Yes, I can see him cackling with glee over it right now. “By my infernal act, eric will lose $52 in compounded interest over his lifetime. Muhahahahaha!”

  2. I love, love, love Jack Chick. Hours and hours of fun there.

    I’ve been searching for a life jacket that uses as its flotation material the same silica foam that’s on the space shuttle. It should come in handy when I’m inevitably thrown into the lake of fire.

    When I find one, I’ll buy one for you, too, Curmy. I’m sure you’ll be joining me for that hot swim.

    That’s very thoughtful, but there’s no need. Athena will protect me.

    Whew, that’s me off the hook. I don’t bother with that Satanic television much any more — it’s internet porn for me!

    I’m saved!

  6. Great Claw says: “it’s internet porn for me!”

    Yes, and it’s Olivia for me.

  7. There you have it, the world’s scientific community is clearly in league with Satan. I’m miffed, though, I never got a clandestine ceremony or a mark of the Beast or anything. 😦

    Where do bad folks go when they die?
    They don’t go to heaven where the angels fly
    They go to the lake of fire and fry
    Won’t see them again ’til the fourth of July

  8. Well, if scientists are from Satan, then where the Hell is my earthly (read: $$$$$!!!!$!$!$!!!$1!!1!) reward? If I’ve sold my soul to the devil, then I want the bucks! Gimme my bucks, Satan!!!

  9. LRA says: “Gimme my bucks, Satan!!!”

    You’ll have to complain on his blog. Contrary to popular opinion, this isn’t it.

  10. Worst. Mistake. Ever.

  11. The delirious Curmudgeon raves

    Yes, and it’s Olivia for me.

    But — unlike my real Olivia — your Olivia has an inflation valve…
