* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Among many other examples, the Roman emperor Constantine the Great, not Saint Peter, is said to have been the first Pope. There was, in fact, a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Constantine Pope Constantine]], but he was neither the first Pope nor the Emperor of the same name.[[NOTE]] While Constantine was obviously never a pope, pretty much every non Catholic Christian also rejects the idea that Peter was viewed by the early Church in any way similar to the modern conception of a Pope. The Apostles seem to have been viewed as a sort of collective authority in early Christian tradition, and the biblical book of Acts records an incident where Peter was corrected and essentially called a hypocrite at the Council of Jerusalem. On top of this Paul seems to have had more influence over the development of Christian Theology than Peter ever did.

** Apparently abortion for God, since "Who Murdered Clarice" is the only tract where He actually gets angry and yells at sinners instead of calmly condemning them.

* DealWithTheDevil: Occurs in [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0078/0078_01.asp "The Contract"]] and [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0034/0034_01.asp "Angels?"]] among others.

* DealWithTheDevil: Occurs in [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0078/0078_01.asp "The Contract"]] and [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0034/0034_01.asp "Angels?"]] among others. But it's almost invariably ''subverted''. Firstly, if you're not a Christian[[note]]or a sufficiently small child[[/note]] the Devil will get you when you die, no matter what—he doesn't need a contract. And secondly, if you ''do'' become a Christian, Jesus will save you and no contract can stop him. So why does the Devil keep signing those deals? Not generally answered, but possibly it's to convince people they're hopelessly lost so they won't ''become'' Christians.

* DevilInDisguise: Several times (for example, ''[[https://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0003/0003_01.asp Somebody Goofed]]''). A person is considering accepting Jesus, but a friend convinces him not to—"you'll lose all your friends" or "you have plenty of time for that later". The person dies unsaved, goes to hell, and sees who his "friend" was all along.

* CaptainObvious: Jack Chick [[http://www.chick.com/reading/comics/0112/albertoindex.asp Alberto]] found it necessary to fill the thing with [[StopHelpingMe helpful]] definitions of complex words, like "deacon", and "sacraments" and "Dominicans". And [[ViewersAreMorons "deny", "documents", and "intense"]]. And "stone". He seriously found it necessary to tell us all what a stone is. It turns out it's actually subverted, however: he fails to [[CriticalResearchFailure define stone correctly]].

** Multiple tracts (including "Big Daddy?" and "Moving On Up!") claim that the punishment for being an evolutionist instead of a young Earth theorist is burning in the Lake of Fire for the rest of eternity. It should be noted that, mostly because it was written before the idea of evolution was ever a thing, this bold claim is nowhere to be found in the Bible.
