What do you do when the government changes the days of the week on you?
Probably not much, unless you're a committed Seventh-day Adventist.
Samoa's SDA's are in conflict with the denominational leadership in the United States. They want to keep observing the unchanged Sabbath, which is no longer Saturday but, horror of horrors, Sunday.
Can we all say "mark of the beast" brethren?
Adventists in Tonga, Kiribati and Wallis
and Futuna are similarly discombobulated by the evolving bumps in the dateline. It gives a whole new meaning to the canard that somebody "doesn't know what day of the week it is."
The implications of planet Earth being a whirling sphere in space don't seem to have sunk in yet in Battle Creek, Michigan. My advice: brush up on your Brinsmead.
Give the SDAs credit though, at least they're grappling with the issue, whereas - to my knowledge - Pasifika members of the Sabbath-keeping splinters of the Worldwide Church of God are not.
Problem? What problem?
