Is Anyone Hellbound?

An article that deals with Hell, from a recent controversy in the Church: Is Rob Bell teaching Universalism? Are people saved after death? http://carm.org/rob-bell-teach-universalism
Why "English" newspapers? It should be "British" newspapers-- especially if you're talking about things that occur in Scotland! I now live in Scotland. As much as I like TownHall, the ignorance of American people (and I spent the first 40 years of my life in the US!) in regard to other countries is just astounding. "England" or "English" is not an all-encompassing word for "Britain" or "British". My Grandad was British Army during WWII. He was not "English Army". There hasn't been an English Army for hundreds of years-- and when there was, they were usually fighting Scots. Great Britain / United Kingdom is Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and England.
As a fellow Knox grad and former Miamian (living and working there for sixteen years, until we moved to Scotland in 2001), I'm glad to be out of Miami! Scotland has a lot of rain, but it's better than raining bullets...
Is it true that Renee Richards petitioned the tennis authorities to play Mixed Singles???

Actually, Great Britain hasn't lasted a thousand years, only just over three hundred with the union of the crowns in 1707. Before that, the nations that make up Great Britain, Scotland, England, and Wales (and later Northern Ireland), were not linked as governments. England, however, has been around a thousand years. Scotland, in various forms, even longer.

On Turning 50

I'm 51, and my parents both worked for 3M in Rochester, NY. I worked there for a summer too, in 1979. My Grandad (Dad's Dad) worked for 3M, as did my Mum's two brothers. All of them were immigrants from Scotland in the '60's, and they all loved 3M.
