(Best if read in an old-timey newspaper voice.)
This just in... Life exists for another day. Currently billions of people populate planet Earth. The atmosphere continues to provide the oxygen needed for survival. Clean sources of water flow from springs, streams and rivers. As you read this column, somewhere clouds are releasing their storehouses of liquid feeding the dry soil. Crops are still yielding their fruit as time moves forward. Plant and animal life give the necessary nourishment that men need to sustain them. What's more, everyday women are giving birth to more and more children.
"How can this be?" you might ask... It defies all logic. It stupefies the wisest of us all. It is the puzzle to top them all. While billions of creatures created in the image of God have decided to rebel against their Creator, God still allows it all to continue. One might say that God is crazy or that He isn't too bright. One might say that this Ruler of all just doesn't have the power to do anything about it. If you ask this reporter, I'd tell you to thank your lucky stars you're still around and pray that you can read a similar front page headline tomorrow.
