Chick Became What He Feared by R. Scott Clark on November 2, 2016 | 4 Comments Chick Tracts ironically turn grace into the same kind of superstitious incantation that they passionately decry. —Samuel D. James Twitter
As Todd Freil liked to say, “there’s a ditch either side of the path”. Chick clearly fell into one of those ditches.
The best laughs are from the obit in The New Republic for JC, who would have guessed they would give him so much attention?
Makes me think that the NR saw Chick as a threat.
My read on Chick was that he was a typical mid-century at least semi-Arminian fundamentalist with very little appreciation for history or the reading of Scripture outside his own circle. Her brought a number of people to Christ, and, by God’s grace, some of them grew. God can strike a straight blow with a crooked stick.
Several years ago, Dr. Clark wrote and spoke on, “Why are some Reformed guys such jerks?” Well, we can be snobs too, you know. Be careful, folks.
