** Noah sent out a raven first. [[FridgeHorror It didn't come back]].



** This is just for ONE person. [[FridgeHorror How much more grieved GOD must have felt up to today and around the time of Revelation?]]



*** The FridgeHorror gets worse when you realize ''why'' his daughter's did that. The destruction around them had been so terrifying and absolute that they thought they were the only people left alive in the entire world. Raping their dad was their despair-fueled attempt at restarting humanity.
** He's some more FridgeHorror involving these cities, Jesus said that in final day of Judgement it is much more bearable in Sodom than in cities that he went through and failed to repent. While the city is corrupt his works would bring even that city to its knees in forgiveness.



** This snippet of text affected FanFic writer and {{Troll}} Creator/MonicaGilbeyBieber so badly that he [[http://monicagilbey-bieber.deviantart.com/journal/I-Realized-WARNING-HI-OCTANE-NIGHTMARE-FUEL-370604759 wrote a journal]] detailing his reaction to this, and compares it to scaphism, an execution method which in itself is NightmareFuel. And the comparison [[FridgeHorror makes sense the more you think of it...]]

* God himself. {{Hollywood Atheist}}s say, "How can we believe in something we can't see?". Anyone who's read Literature/TheBible will tell you that merely looking upon God in our current mortal state is an instant death spell. That's actually a bit comforting, in retrospect, that we can't see God, 'cause, otherwise, we'd constantly be blowing up.

* One of the core beliefs of Calvinism is that God has preordained everything that will happen even before the universe began, including who'll be saved and who's going to Hell. [[YouCantFightFate Nobody has any choice in this, nor do the damned have any chance for salvation.]] And this is the fate that awaits most of humanity. This is not part of the Bible or main Christian doctrine, but imagine if it ''is''.

* Come on, we've got to mention the classic I-was-scarred-by-CCD example: Abraham being told to sacrifice Isaac. NOT COOL, GOD!
** There is a short story/religious commentary about Rebecca's marriage to Isaac that explores the [[ParentalBetrayal psychological scarring]] that near-sacrifice has on Isaac (i.e., depression, trust issues, and nightmares where his father is still binding him to the sacrificial altar!). Worse yet, Rebecca fears that God will ask the same of Isaac himself--and that this time, he may not send a last-minute substitute.

** Not even taking that into account, God could sentence you to death in a heartbeat purely to get some other fellow to make up his mind. Are you the oldest child by any chance?
** Arguably worse is the strict rules he forced the Israelites to adhere to.
** While God seems to have mellowed out since UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}'s sacrifice, there is still the fact that all the things we consider to be "Acts of God," such as hurricanes and earthquakes, won't even be able to hold a ''candle'' to what's going to happen during the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt End Times]].

** God used to walk freely with Adam but as sin corrupted man, but man can no longer do that because God's presence kills sin. The implication? His mere existence [[MindRape forces your mind to be incapable of sin.]]

* Then there's {{Satan}}. Imagine: an incredibly evil being who hates ''everybody and everything'' and wants nothing but to see you suffer and he appears... As the most beautiful of all angels, so wonderful-looking you could be '''effortlessly''' tricked to worship him if you saw him. FauxAffablyEvil at its best/worst.
** Speaking of Satan: unless you're accepting an alternate character interpretation, it's pretty obvious that Satan is evil. However, why he's evil is rather terrifying when you think about it. To oversimplify, humans are evil because of external temptation (i.e, Satan and original sin) and selfishness. Satan predates external temptation, and he must know that it's not in his self-interest to oppose God. He is, quite possibly, the only creature to choose evil against their self-interest independently of any external factor. Satan is a creature that hates good so much that it would do absolutely anything to distance itself from goodness. It is a very horrifying notion. And why does he hate everybody? He simply can't stand anything that reminds him of God, or His creations. All his animosity is derived from nothing but [[EvilIsPetty spite and pride.]]
** There is a story in Orthodox Sacred Tradition. It tells us that one day a demon came to a saint to ask if God could forgive them. The saint prayed to God and an angel appeared. The angel rebuked the saint for asking him, as the demon was simply tempting him. Then it said that even Satan could be forgiven if they would repent... but they wouldn't. But in order to show God's mercy, God told the saint the means how demon could save itself: if the demon repented, it would be saved. And what next? The demon ''laughed'' and mocked the saint for this advice on how to save it, as it considered itself too high and mighty to repent... In short, God gave their enemies the way out by repenting to be in peace with Him... and they refused.
** One woman once asked John Chrysostom how many angels became demons with Satan. He responded that ''all of humanity'' from Adam and Eve to the last man is just ''1%''. There are trillions of evil [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] here, hating all of us simply because we are made in God's image and constantly temptings us to sin. The only being that prevents them from totally killing is God.
* Let us not get started on what the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] [[EldritchAbomination look like]]. There is a reason why they have "be not afraid" as their CatchPhrase. Even Daniel, a prophet, nearly faints when Gabriel appears before him!
** To elaborate, most classes of the angels have multiple heads (usually four, three resembling an animal and one resembling a human), four or six wings (some of which have hands under the wings), and eyes. '''[[EyesDoNotBelongThere Eveywhere on their body]]'''. [[UpToEleven Even in the spaces between the eyes]].
* The Flood, anyone? Once you get past all of the animals that Noah saved, ''EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING ON EARTH died.'' All of the animals that weren't in the ark drowned. Everyone that Noah knew (save his immediate family) drowned. After they got off the ark, they were ENTIRELY ALONE IN THE WORLD.
** Not to mention the smell. Forty days and forty nights (maybe more considering how long it might have dissipated.) of every living thing rotting in the ocean.
** Noah sent out a raven first, [[FridgeHorror It didn't come back]].
** A Creator/ShelSilverstein poem explains that the unicorns were too busy playing to get on the ark[[note]]''sotto voce:'' idiots[[/note]] and they all drowned. ''There's rats and cats and elephants, but as sure as you're born, you're never gonna see no unicorn.''
*** Another possibility is that Noah did take a couple of unicorns on board. He just FailedASpotCheck and didn't realize that they were ''both male.''
** The creation of the rainbow deserves mention as well. After having wiped out the overwhelming majority of the human and animal population, God places the rainbow in the sky every time it rains--a covenant, in a sense, that he will never do such a thing again, but also a reminder that ''God is perfectly capable of destroying the world and he's done it before.'' Even better if you take the interpretation by a certain gospel song: "God sent Noah the rainbow sign: / No more water--the fire next time!"
** How about the Antediluvian world? Genesis says that before the flood, with the exception of Noah, ''[[CrapsackWorld every inclination of human thought was evil.]]'' One can only imagine what it was like to warrant an apocalypse.

* Sodom and Gomorrah. Theories about why they attracted God's wrath run the spectrum from "failure to show proper hospitality to strangers" to "attempted violent assault and gang-rape of strangers", but either way, it got [[NukeEm nuked]]. With fire and brimstone. The only survivors were Lot and his daughters - his wife dared to look back and got turned into a pillar of salt for it. There are other times God smote his enemies, but this one wins out for sheer ''obliteration''. Not to mention that the two angels come to the city to see how good people were, and all the guys lusted after them. The angels then went to the Lot's house, where because of aforementioned lust for the angels, they asked for them so that they could have fun. Lot refuses, and instead offers them his ''virgin daughters''.
** Worse still is when they escape and later live in a cave in the mountains that Lot's daughters get him drunk and have sex with him. Let me say that again: Lot is [[DateRape date raped]] ''[[ParentalIncest by his own daughters]]''.
*** Although, this was not long after the Earth was created and there were not a lot of people on the Earth to mate with. Cain, for instance, had to have had a sister with whom he had relations with as Literature/TheBible says he did indeed have a son and there were no humans on the Earth aside from him and his siblings and parents. So such a disturbing case wouldn't have been nearly as forbiden or taboo back then as it is now. Still, it gives you a better feeling about living in todays era, what with all the madness going on in the Bible times that isn't repeated today.

* The plagues of Egypt are all nightmare fuel. River of blood replacin the river of Nile. Swarms of insects filling the air (multiple times!). Rain of hailfire crushing the land. Pure and ''tangible'' darkness blinding the whole country. All topped by the death of the firstborns of the Egypt's. All these Egyptian children are completely ''innocent'' for the plight of the Jewish slaves, yet they are all killed by the angel of death (which deserves a mention itself).
** Note that the way God hardened the Pharaoh's heart (so he wouldn't free the slaves) is a point of contention: many scholars believe it should be translated as "The Thought of God hardened his heart". Still scary.
* All the messed up crap on ''Literature/BooksOfKings'' makes ''Series/GameOfThrones'' look like a picnic.
* The death of Jezebel also deserves a special mention for sheer graphic description and squickiness. First, thrown out a window, then run over by a chariot, and then eaten by dogs. Yikes. (This is, however, a KarmicDeath. Jezebel was responsible for the introduction of that particular wave of Baal worship into Israel. Although there are a few quibbles about whether they are the same, Baal was sometimes called Molech, and a part of the worship of Molech may have involved the sacrifice of children by burning them alive.)

* The life of the Gerasene Demoniac , the TropeNamer of VoiceOfTheLegion, must have been a walking nightmare before he was exorcised. This poor guy was possessed not by one demon, but by an ''entire legion of them,'' so many that, when they were driven out of him, they possessed an entire herd of pigs and fled over a cliff. He was tormented day and night while possessed, engaging in self-harm and begging to be put out of his misery. When Jesus finally came to him, he was so psychologically (and probably physically too) messed up that he was almost beyond saving.

An angel came and told him that in order to be saved, he should endure another year in humility... or to suffer three hours in hell. It took '''one hour''' this person to want to get out, as it was like a very long time. He chose to suffer the rest of his life on Earth.
