REV. 16 – HORROR OF LOCKED HEARTS

INTRODUCTION: William Barclay has said, “The most terrible situation in life is when Almighty God is powerless to gain an entry into the citadel of the human heart, for God has given men the terrible responsibility of being able to lock their hearts against Him.”

BOWL #2 – RED TIDE

From time to time, off the coast of California and elsewhere, a phenomenon known as “the red tide” occurs. These red tides kill millions of fish, and poison those who eat contaminated shell fish. In 19149, one of these red tides hit the coast of Florida. First the water turned yellow, but by midsummer it was thick and viscous and coucntless billions of dinoflagellates, tiny one-celled organisms. Sixty-mile windrows of stinking fish fouled the beaches. Much marine life was wiped out, even bait used by fishermen died upon the hooks. Eventually the red tide subsided, only to appear again the following year. Eating fish contaminated by the tide produced severe symptoms caused by a potent nerve poison, a few grams of which, distributed aright, could easily kill everyone in the world.d An unchecked population explosion of toxic dinoflagellates would kill all the fish in the sea. The phenomenon is well known, but scientists do not know what causes the proliferation of these creatures or what normally limits it. One theory is that it is caused when cobalt in an area reaches a certain density. Using the sea as a dumping place for nuclear and other waste may one day raise the level of cobalt to the point where it triggers a dinoflagellate plague. This may not fully explain what wil happen when the second vial is outpoured, but it certainly illustrates it. The disaster described is quite credible. #2 Strauss
