I don't think we'll be adding those to our list of "Materials we Recommend"!
Could be interesting. There's definitely nothing wrong with it, but I would prefer to stay heavily on the scriptural side. Chick Tracts go too far out into imagination for me. Tbh, I believe Jesus's message is universal in general. You don't need to add anything to it to make it so. ECT is always being stuck on top of Jesus's general message, and I hate that. And I wouldn't want to follow suit and try to stick a UR message on top, either. Anything beyond Romans 5 and what not is too much, but there is a lot in the Bible to highlight that is often skipped over.byronarn wrote:Would anyone be interested in starting a project to create a UR version of a chick tract?
I generally felt JW's had a more solid theology than most. I feel similarly about the Orthodox. I do not agree with either of them, but I don't agree with a lot of people. The JW's brought us a booklet once which was titled "The flames of Hell... or not?" Tbh, that helped calm me down. My parents were not religious but there was a strong religious whiff around the area.Sobornost wrote:I presume that by the ‘JWs’ you mean the Jehovah’s Witnesses? Obviously I don’t agree with them theologically – and nor do you, I think – but I will say that when I get into conversation with one of them on my doorstep I always feel reassured to know that they are thinking I will merely be annihilated if I don’t convert, and therefore they are not having twisted fantasies about my possible eternal torment. I also note that one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever worked with is a JW – she’s second generation rather than a new convert (and, in my experience, its always the new converts who are the trickiest customers, whatever the faith). IN addition I remember that my Chick book loving fundamentalist church friends once held a lecture entitled ‘How to break a Jehovah’s Witnesses Faith’ – even at the time I felt ashamed.

I'm busy on another thread at the moment - but in a couple of weeks would like to start this conversation up again and talk about the 'Satanic Panic'. I remeber it well adn still feel furious about some of the fallout from this exericse in bearing false witness (especially on the detection of sexual abuse in the UK, after so many false allegations were made). I hope we can have a conversation about this soon and perhaps swop stories and insights.
All the best

Absolutely, dude! I had this idea myself not too long ago and even came up with some half-assed ideas, heh. It's awesome that someone else has thought of this, too!
I'm also a pretty good artist, so that solves that. And I'm an experienced writer and amateur theologian.
In fact, I was planning on doing them by myself, but I don't have near enough time to spearhead something like that on my own. Glad I found this when I did.
