That is mine as well. I was raised Presbyterian (UPC, back before the merger), and every Sunday we recited the Apostle's Creed: I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into Hell. On the third day He arose again from the dead And sitteh on the right hand of God the Father Almighty From whence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, The holy catholic church, The communion of saints, The forgiveness of sins, The ressurrection of the body, (NOTE!) And the life everlasting. Amen. However, this line has sometimes been interpreted to be a specific reference (to Christ's body) rather than a general one, so it's not quite as clearcut is it might appear. -Mark
