WHEN I BOUGHT MY WIFE’S ENGAGEMENT RING AT TYRELL’S JEWELER’S, IN SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA. THE JEWELER ASKED ME IF I WANTED A DIAMOND WITH A SLIGHT BREAK, A VERY SLIGHT BREAK, OR WHAT HE CALLED A THREE-V DIAMOND, ONE WITH A VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY SLIGHT BREAK. I SAID, I WANT ONE WITH NO BREAK AT ALL AND THE JEWELER ASSURED ME THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS A DIAMOND WITHOUT A BREAK. YEARS LATER, I ASKED THE GEOLOGIST IN MY CHURCH AS TO WHY ALL STONES WERE BROKEN AND HE TOLD ME THAT THEY HAD LEARNED IN COLLEGE COURSES THAT ALL STONES WERE BROKEN, BUT THE PROFESSOR HAD FAILED TO TELL THEM WHY. THEN HE SAID, I CAN SHOW YOU WHY, GIVE ME YOUR BIBLE AND HE TURNED TO MATTHEW 27:51 WHERE THESE WORDS, "AND BEHOLD, THE VEIL OF THE TEMPLE WAS RENT IN TWAIN FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM; AND THE EARTH DID QUAKE, AND THE ROCKS RENT;" A MODERN TRANSLATION WOULD READ..."AND THE ROCKS BROKE." WHEN JESUS DIED ON CALVARY, EVERY ROCK ON THIS PLANET SPLIT IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE.
