This limited website attempts to pull together and present only a short, and perhaps limited, introduction to a complex theological and historical area of research. I would encourage all to engage in independent research, reading, contemplation, and decision-making. In matters of faith, even more than economics or politics, there may be no "right" answer or definitive understanding. That is a condition of the human experience however one understands its connection to a spiritual realm.
