New Jack Chick Comic — Your Soul

Jack Chick-Soul

It’s amazing. Jack Chick had his 92nd birthday last month. Although his output has been slowing down, and his “newsletter” hasn’t been updated for months, he’s still producing his unique material. We cheer whenever we see a new one, and that just happened today.

The title is Soul Survivor, and you can read it online. It’s about two kids who never heard of the soul before. The first two frames above this post are from the start of the comic. Then a kindly gentlemen explains it to them. One kid gets saved, but the other … well, the third frame is from near the end of the comic.

If you haven’t yet seen any of Chick’s comics, you can read them online using the links in this post: Creationist Comic Books. They’re classics — especially Big Daddy?

As we’ve done before with posts about Jack Chick, we’re declaring this to be an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Talk about whatever you think is interesting — science, politics, philosophy, etc. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But beware of the profanity filters.

But wait! First we’re going to offer you a little poem we composed, inspired by Jack Chick’s new comic. We know it’s horrible:

O Muse! Assist me as I strum my lyre
And sing about the Lake of Fire
A subject of which I never tire
‘Cause I don’t wanna go there when I expire

What, I ask, do the gods require
What will protect me from their ire
And keep me from a fate so dire
As the frightful, fearsome Lake of Fire

It’s worst than we feared. Perhaps you can do better Okay, we now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it!

  1. For this IFFZ, I wanted to give a quick story. I volunteer to act as a judge for the local school districts science fairs. I’ve seen both affluent and not-so-affluent kids. The frills between the two are different, but it warms my heart that the basics of science are still the same in either. I recently judged at an elementary school not in, but near, the rough side of town. I went through about 50 different posters, grading them on how well they presented the science basics. All did fine, but a few stood out. Another judge and I asked to speak with one 4th grade girl. When she arrived, we asked her to discuss her poster.
    The phrase “knocked it out of the park” comes to mind.
    She gave us her entire presentation and looked at her poster ONE TIME! The rest of the time she was looking either the other judge or me right in the eye. The one time she looked at her poster? That was just to remember the decimal place on a particular number. She also did it without any notes. She just walked us through her presentation, then answered the few questions we had. Come to find out this girl comes from a fairly poor family, but mom and dad are fairly strict about education.
    To say that it made me feel good driving home that night is an understatement.

  2. Isn’t Jack Chick the creepy guy we told our kids to stay away from?

    SC’s poetic take down of Jack Chick’s latest comic certainly deserves to be awarded this time-honored punch line:

  4. According to the Bible, heaven is hotter than hell though.

  5. Ah, Gary! As a retired jr. hi science teacher who has organized many a science fair entailing the recruiting of vast numbers of qualified judges, I hold you in the highest esteem! You’re my hero!

    Note to other regulars on the blog — your local science teachers need your help. If you want to help advance the cause of the Enlightenment, inquire at your local school district about ways you can help.

    Your Lord told you: “The merciful are blessed,
    For mercy they shall have.” He said the word,
    But is it true? Has He in fact concurred
    With his own precept? For you have professed
    That millions who have failed your God’s own test,
    Which is belief alone, shall be referred
    To flames eternal. Has it not occurred
    To you that there’s no mercy there, at best?

    Of all your untold millions damned, none gave
    Some water for a thirst? No kindliness,
    No mercy? What, not one? Your Lord will save
    For that. He said that he’d reward, no less,
    The least small act with mercy, not the grave,
    Not Hell. It is yourself who’s merciless.

  7. @Dave Luckett: Hear, hear!

    I was channeling Johnny Cash – “Ring of Fire” becomes “Lake of Fire”.
    I fell in to a burnin’ lake of fire…

  9. From the few panels reproduced by our Curmudgeon, I was certain that the boy would end up in the Lake of Fire whereas the girl would be saved. After all, she looks rather humble, and the boy does … not.

    But [MEGASPOILER:] it turns out I was quite wrong! When I read the whole thing, it turns out that it is the boy that accepts Jesus and the girl that ends up swimming in molten sulphur!

    What a plot-twist! What a master of suspense and subtle misdirection Chick is! Somebody hand him his well-deserved Nobel prize in literature before it is too late!

  10. “It’s invisible so science ignores it…like a joke.”
    Excellent logic! Cause science has ignored gravity, x-rays, ultraviolet rays, and electromagnetic energy…” Yeahhhh, no.
