Jack Chick has died, an man dedicated to doing God’s work who was used much to help evangelize the world, died on October 23rd. He was generally hated by the world, because he was not a friend, he did not agree with, the world. The Word of God however says something about that, James 4:4 states: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
The National Post published an relatively hostile article on him entitled “Drawn out: Wherever Jack Chick has ended up, it seems appropriate that his legacy will be inexorably tied to ignorance”, see it at: http://news.nationalpost.com/arts/books/wherever-jack-chick-has-ended-up-it-seems-appropriate-that-his-legacy-will-be-inexorably-tied-to-ignorance
I wrote a letter to the editor in response but this newspaper, as many others do, generally does not publish letters to the editor from people like me.
My letter was short:
Re: Drawn Out, David Berry, October 26.
Millions have had their lives transformed by the simple gospel that Jack Chick, and others, have preached, “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…” (Acts 16:31). One wonders where the strong aversion, the distain that Mr. Berry obviously has for Chick comes from. Perhaps the words of Jesus Christ to his followers from John 15:18 applies, “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”
