** That's a pedestrian, note the umbrella. I think he's being hit by a car, not raptured, otherwise, he'd have [[EmptyPilesOfClothing left his clothes behind]].

* [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/1069/1069_01.asp This]] one, which talks about the end of the world, has a picture of a man outside of his car being pulled up towards heaven, with the caption, "You never know when your time is up." Think about that for a second. Imagine you're in your home, and suddenly you get pulled towards heaven ''against your will,'' never to return to Earth again.

** Godís behavior in "Uninvited" is even worse. According to the comic all homosexuals are the way they are because they were posed by an evil spirit after being raped/ molested. Chickís version of God sending people to hell for something that was forced upon them. [[SarcasmMode A benevolent God, indeed.]]

* Lance has a fairly terrifying scene in Hell. First his leg catches fire, then his entire body is ablaze, then the scene fades to black with only his screams. This time, Chick didn't settle for people falling into Hell and/or the Lake of Fire, or surveying their new surroundings in despair, but actually showed what it's like to burn alive.

** After Lance commits suicide and his friend Dolly is saved from the same fate by converting to fundamentalist Christianity along with her sister, they just forget about him, as if they're happy that they didn't end up in hell like Lance, who has just burned up and vanished into "the darkness outside". Seriously, they have no respect for the dead or even visit them, which brings out the [[AccidentalAesop "Christian" message]] that people should only care about themselves and forget about others if they die heathens.

** A probably unintentional example of nightmare fuel occurs in the same tract, when a cat turns its head around like Reagan from ''TheExorcist'' to look at two demons outside of a window. While this is probably just a poorly executed drawing, the cat doesn't look like something that you would want to meet in a dark alley.

* Frequently, ScareEmStraight methods are used by Chick to the point where a reader feels sick reading some of his work. For example, in Happy Halloween, a mother only feels bad for her son because he lost heaven, but ''says he deserves it for not going to Sunday School''.
** Perhaps even more horrifying, or just as horrifying, is the fact that the boy's family is actually smiling and cheering as though nothing is wrong ''after their possibly only son is mowed down in the streets''! Any ordinary parent, after their son died, would be a tad upset, if not furious, when a person tells them that their son is going to Hell the day after he died, but these parents just forget about their child and start laughing in joy when they realize they aren't going to Hell. What about that son of theirs? Who cares? They aren't going to end up like that horrible wretch for being a kid!
** Same goes for Lance in "No Fear?": after he commits suicide and his friend Dolly is saved from the same fate by converting to fundamentalist Christianity along with her sister, they just forget about him, as if they're happy that they didn't end up in hell like Lance, who has just burned up and vanished into "the darkness outside".

** And it's highly implied that Marcie ''committed suicide in front of Debbie''. No wonder she spends the rest of the tract in a HeroicBSOD.
