So Far, So Good

It’s about 9 a.m. Sunday on the island of Kiritimati (Christmas Island) in the Pacific, and all is well. Kirimati is the first stop after the International Date Line. In the Chatham Islands, it’s 8 a.m. It’s 5 a.m. in Sydney, Australia, 3 a.m. in Beijing, Manila and Hong Kong, 2 a.m. in Jakarta, 2 a.m. Kaththmandu, and just after midnight in Mumbai.

People in that part of the world can sleep soundly; Doomsday is over and has passed them by. The 6 p.m. deadline has already passed further West. London, Paris, and Rome, Oslo, Moscow, and Casablanca are safe, as are Madrid, Johannesburg, and Zurich.

The Sun is making its way across the Atlantic. Halifax and Rio de Janeiro will be the first American cities to know what Fate has in storm. If the sun sets over Honolulu with no catastrophes, the world will be able to breathe a sigh of relief: it was just a false alarm.

Most of us just laughed the whole thing. Anyone who knows the Bible (or has seen Shawshank Redemption) knows that God isn’t going to alert the Media before He does his spring cleaning, tossing out the garbage and keeping what is worthwhile, then finishes the rest of us off. However, Judgment Day does give you pause to think?

On Judgment Day, is your soul going to go to Heaven or the Salvation Army?
