Opinion: Did Bible Tracts Work ?

These little you sin you go to hell you repent you are saved comics could be found for the longest time in gas station bathrooms, on cars parked at porn shops, bars and other places that the person handing them out felt was a blasphemous place to hang. Sometimes left in random places or handed out to you unexpectedly. I actually ordered a bunch for nostalgia sake, but if you suffer from depression and read this crap it weighs on ya. I really dug the artwork but I don’t think scaring people into a belief system is the way to go. If anything it pushes me further away. I don’t know how many people were saved by Jack Chick but I’m not one of them. I just really dig the artwork, but honestly after I scanned these today I threw em out. They just push buttons I don’t need pushed.
