A Day in the Life, Pt. 1

When I was a kid, I attended a Sunday School class where the teacher spoke about the Final Days. During the discussion, he emphasized that the Bible stated that a “sure sign” of the pending Apocalypse was that things would not function in their normal ways:  Black would be white, up would be down.  Not…
