Sorry, Eric, all those temporal markers are all included only for their literary effect. I can see absolutely no reason why the Spirit of God, the real author here, thought otherwise. The SADs are right and you are wrong. You just don't get it. You can't be a Moore College graduate.

You're stupid. You don't understand. Do you really think that after 4 years of the best theological training money can buy that they would be wrong? Do you you think you know better than they? Well, do you?

John, John,

Yes, a-temporality is taught at Moore, as far as I can recollect...the real world is here in time, and the 'other world' is away from time. If the two touch, you'd expect the touching could be expressed with temporality as the unifying factor, becuase God made us in a temporally constrained, hang about; if God made us in a temporally contstrained world, would not he use time markers to coordinate his actions with ours to help us understand them within our time-bound perspective?

That would give them a place and reify the junction between God and man!
