On March 26, 2000, Seattle’s famed Kingdome—home of the Seattle Seahawks, Mariners, and at times, the Super Sonics—was destroyed.

Maryland-based Controlled Demolition Incorporated was hired to do the job of imploding the 25,000-ton structure that had marked Seattle’s skyline for two dozen years.

Remarkable about the event was the extreme measures taken to ensure no one was hurt. CDI had experience with over 7,000 demolitions and knew how protect people.

Engineers checked and rechecked the structure.

The authorities evacuated several blocks around the Kingdome.

Safety measures were in place to allow the countdown to stop at any time if there was concern about safety.

All workers were individually accounted for by radio before the explosives were detonated.

A large public address system was used to announce the final countdown.

In short, CDI took every reasonable measure and more to warn people of the impending danger.

The Bible teaches of a final judgment and destruction for this sinful world.

Like the engineers who blew up the Kingdome, our heavenly Father has spared no expense to make sure everybody can "get out" safely.

He warns us through our consciences, through the prophets, through the Word of God, through the Holy Spirit, through the Church, and through his Son.
