An umpire named Babe Pinelli once called Babe Ruth out on strikes. When the crowd booed with disapproval, the legendary Ruth turned to the umpire and said, "How could you call that a strike? There are 40,000 people here who are of the opinion that the last pitch was a ball!"

The cool headed umpire replied, "That may be true, but my opinion is the only one that counts. Take a seat."

One of the things we learn in Revelation is that God’s opinion is the one that counts. The one who created the world and redeemed the world has the right to END the world if we do not repent! Revelation 16:7 says "Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments."
