The BBC reports,
On the morning of 30 October 1961, a Soviet Tu-95 bomber took off from ... the far north of Russia.
... World War Two had placed the US and USSR in the same camp, but the post-war period had seen relations chill and then freeze. And the Soviets, presented with a rivalry against the world’s only nuclear superpower, had only one option – to catch up. Fast.
... The Tsar Bomba was no ordinary nuclear bomb. It was the result of a feverish attempt by the USSR’s scientists to create the most powerful nuclear weapon yet, spurred on by Premier Nikita Khruschchev’s desire to make the world tremble at the might of Soviet technology. It was more than a metal monstrosity too big to fit inside even the largest aircraft – it was a city destroyer, a weapon of last resort.
... [The] Tsar Bomba unleashed almost unbelievable energy – now widely agreed to be in the order of 57 megatons, or 57 million tons of TNT. That is more than 1,500 times that of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs combined, and 10 times more powerful than all the munitions expended during World War Two. Sensors registered the bomb’s blast wave orbiting the Earth not once, not twice, but three times .... Some scientists began to believe it was too big ... If the bomb was as powerful as intended, the aircraft would have been on a one-way mission.
The power of the bomb persuaded nuclear physicist Andrei Sakharov to renounce nuclear weapons
A bomb too big to fit into a plane and too powerful for a flight crew to get out of its range of destruction is just too big, too powerful!
Likewise, there are some sins that are so destructive that we dare not commit them for fear that we will not be able to escape what we’ve unleashed.
On the top of that list is the sin of adultery! The power of this destructive force is so great that it should lead us all to denounce it!
Not even a king is protected from the destructive forces of sexual promiscuity. Remember, it was the great sin with Bathsheba that undermined the house of David.
"Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body" (1 Corinthians 6:18).
"Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge" (Psalm 51:4).
