No nuclear midnight in God's care

Under Love's government, there
is no darkness or fear to resist the goodness
and tenderness of divine law.

In Chicago, Illinois, a Doomsday Clock is maintained by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. The position of the hands in relation to midnight indicates the prospects for nuclear war. As of this writing, they are set at 11:43 p.m.—the farthest they have ever been from midnight since the clock was set up in 1947.

Yet there are new sources of concern, such as the war in what was once Yugoslavia, the increase in unregulated arms sales, and terrorist activity. A few months ago, World Monitor magazine reported that there is a growing nuclear threat from unstable or restless governments both in the former Soviet Union and elsewhere. It went on to say that some nuclear devices are so small they could be carried in a suitcase. Under these circumstances, even seventeen minutes from midnight is not good enough.
