A Message From David W. Daniels
Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
Jack Chick was no theologian. He openly stated that. In fact, he used to say, “When theologians and people with doctorates come over, I want to hide underneath my desk!” Jack said what he meant, and meant what he said. He never tried to state things that were complicated, because he was not a complicated guy.
That is why Chick tracts are so simple. They are a tool we can use to show people they need Christ. We get flack from “armchair theologians” who are not happy with using a few words to state spiritual truths. They want to use big words. Or they would be happy to supply us with 75 words in place of the 8 we have in a sentence. (Try to fit that in a 3”x5” tract)
But we’re not writing for theologians. We are writing for ordinary people. That’s why Jack said, “We are all the same: sinners in desperate need of a Saviour.”
So the theologians can theologize. The PhDs can “Pile it Higher and Deeper.” But we preach Christ crucified, buried and risen again, and that faith in His shed blood will make the difference between heaven and hell —an eternity of difference. As God inspired Paul to write:
“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” (Ephesians 2:13)
Forty five years ago a man gave me a tract I actually read . . . a Chick tract. And then he had the courage to go through it with me. You already know what happened. . . I found Christ! Chick tracts could be just what God will use to grow your personal ministry. I hope that the new tract, God’s Little Angel, with its simple message will help you reach the frustrated people you meet.
God bless you as you leave tracts wherever you go. You just never know where they will end up! And you know they will get read!
