Article XXXIV: Language of Theologians

One approach theologians use to speak about religion is to use generalized language. In discussions about Truth by people who are of different religious or non-religious perspectives, it is often helpful to use this generalized language to better relate their beliefs. Often by substituting words like "the Divine" or "Truth" for "God," or using "numinous" for "spiritual," one can avoid the connotations that detract from a productive discussion of beliefs and paths to the ultimate goal. A Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian, or a person of any religion can often exchange extraordinary beliefs about Divinity simply by substituting the word "God" for "Jesus," "Allah," or "Shiva." Often when the semantics and names are removed, people of different religions can relate to the core values of righteousness and ultimate bliss that pervade all religions.
