Does this restaurant specialize in Halal food? The new owner is a gourmet cook and makes amazing onion soup, etc. Beyond the camaraderie, I found the work environment at Equinix to be similar to the one I left behind in the military in how the organization really looks out for every facet of our work-life. After doing some research, interviewing with a bunch of companies up and down the East Coast and weighing all of my options, it became clear to me that Equinix was the right choice. The culture Equinix has fostered not only makes the transition seamless, but is also one in which veterans can thrive.
Accurate mileage reporting in the palm of your hand.
As a veteran, I was hesitant about the transition to civilian life and how my training would translate. This turned out to be unfounded, however, as I quickly discovered that Equinix provides a challenging yet supportive environment in which I can directly utilize the skills I learned in the military. The culture Equinix has fostered not only makes the transition seamless, but is also one in which veterans can thrive. One of the biggest ways my experience in the U.
As Equinix is at the forefront of providing services to its clients across a range of industries with technology that is constantly evolving, having this perspective has served me well. FI think Equinix is a great career home for transitioning servicemen and women because of the way the culture really values the strong work ethic, dedication, and sense of duty that we bring to the table. I was blessed to have a military career in telecommunications, a field that easily transitioned into the civilian world.
Through my experience in the military I learned core technical skills that have allowed me to be successful in my professional career. Beyond this technical training, the military also taught me the importance of a strong work ethic, teamwork, attention to detail, and how to follow processes and procedures.
I have found all of these to be skills that are truly valued at Equinix. One of the things I like most about working at Equinix is the chance to see that strong team culture in action every single day. Equinix is a proud supporter of organizations that assist veterans on their journeys back into civilian life.

A ninth possibility is that although Jesus was a real historical figure, he became the stuff of legend. All kinds of powers and statements were attributed to him over the years as happened to a number of the saints. Possibility 10 — Jesus was a semi-divine creature like the Nephilim see Gen 6: There are no doubt other possibilities. But that is something you know in your heart, not something you can prove by carefully selecting the evidence and ignoring conflicting texts and then only offering two far-fetched alternatives.
No, the two far-fetched alternatives are the other two branches of the trilemma. Let me give an example of the technique being used. Jesus told the disciples that they would sit on 12 thrones and judge the 12 tribes of Israel There are only three possibilities: The 12 disciples are actually sitting on thrones in Heaven and every time a Jew dies he goes to be judged by one of the disciples.
But so is the trilemma. As you said in your piece, there are at least two very clear alternative possibilities. At least one outreach course in the USA moved from its original claim of the trilemma to the quintilemma in the second edition. In the UK, the very popular Alpha course persists with the trilemma. There are more options, such as what you listed above. The trilemma can be useful, though — it can get people to start seriously thinking about the options, for example. The Alpha course, which drew heavily on the trilemma, has been of enormous benefit to a lot of people — though I think the fellowship approach rather than the theology was the reason for that.
I failed the Alpha course, however. The trilemma was to me such an obviously false proposition and a dishonest way of trying to bounce people into a belief that I could put little trust in the rest of the course. I was not helped by the fact that what was advertised as a discussion course was led by a cleric with an authoritarian, didactic approach who was unwilling to tolerate any other points of view.
What the Alpha course did for me was to make think that there must be a lot more to Christianity than biblical literalism and a belief in blood sacrifice or penal substitution for it to have survived so long, spread so widely and to have pre-occupied some of the most intelligent people of their generations. A motif of my line of thinking here is that when theologians are allowed to take the ball and run with it, they tend to cause more problems than they solve. Therefore, they basically have to remain epistemically tentative.
This includes things like penal substitution theories of the atonement, trinitarian theories of God, and so on. Yes, some people are shocked when finding out what kind of diversity of thought there is within Christianity! Much less that what they took Christianity to be are often minority positions, nowadays or historically speaking. Those first Christians who had a strong enough faith to die in the Coliseum had never heard of the Trinity or the Nicene Creed and many were illiterate and never read any of the books that would later be included in the bible.
But their trusting relationship with God and their loving compassion, not only within their own fellowship but to all those in need, showed that they had a faith worth having.
I think this is, basically, a mistake, and Christians would be behooved to stop doing it. Your email address will not be published. There are two problems here. One with the Father.
