not defined or limited to good times. As I never doubt God, I feel I can do a better job explaining this point. I mentioned earlier that men are limited to their own understanding, but at times it seems Christians are limited to their own individual belief. With so many different denominations, using references, how do we explain which is the true denomination? My answer
