If you missed the link in the comments on “Sheol and the Resurrection of the Dead“, be sure to check out Steve’s new article at Undeception about “The Millennium and the Resurrection of the Dead“.

Comments Off on A clash of worlds

One of the odd things about my professional day job is that our offices are on the 5th floor of a hotel. We rent the space, but it’s rather odd to walk into a hotel everyday and head for the elevators. It’s a business hotel, so there’s almost always one conference or another going on: […]

ElShaddai has been working on some projects for 3M at work, including their eStore web site. Indeed, 3M has some strange products: Look for them to show up as stocking stuffers in a month or two!

Comments Off on Unceasing Worship, part 3

Chapter 3 of Harold Best’s “Unceasing Worship” is titled “Mutual Indwelling: The Final Geography of Worship” and moves the text from discussing the time and place of worship in Christ to mutual worship within the corporate body. Best begins […]
