Some of the problems with religious language are illustrated by the more extreme positions, for example, A. Ayer’s claim that the language of theology is meaningless and nonsense and Paul van Buren’s claim that “the word ‘God’ is dead.” 2 Other concerns were prompted by the repercussions of attention to language by the more moderate analytic philosophers and the Author: James F.

Harris. In each case, however, the philosophy of language is also connected with its major appropriation in religious studies.

Since one cannot exactly keep these approaches distinct, places of cross-fertilization and reaction are indicated, with the intent of providing an expanding conversation as the book by: Perhaps you have heard, or even been a part of, such a conversation.

Christians have a tendency to use certain “religious” terms that are either directly from Scripture, or which are used as shorthand to describe a biblical principle (such as the ‘Trinity’).

There is nothing wrong with this. However. Hick’s defence is that religious language is a commitment to something which will happen in the future, and so it cannot be verified now (e.g.

There are other problems with the Book of Mormon. For example, critics of Mormonism have shown convincing proof that the Book of Mormon is a synthesis of earlier works (written by other men), of the vivid imaginings of Joseph Smith, and of plagiarisms from the King James Bible.

The only Bible that Joseph Smith relied on was the King James Version. All the arguments we’ve looked at so far (ontological, cosmological, teleological, problem of evil) assume a cognitivist view of religious arguments so far treat “God exists” as a scientific, empirical statement – i.e.

a statement that aims to literally describe how the world is. Jonathan Hodge, University of Leeds, UK 'Finally a book on religious language by an accomplished philosopher of language. Talking about God is a conceptual history of the notion of analogy from Aristotle through Aquinas and Kant to Barth that is both deeply informed in its scholarship and philosophically sensitive and acute.

Problems of Religious Language. THE PECULIARITY OF RELIGIOUS LANGUAGE. Contemporary work in the philosophy of religion has been much occupied with problems created by the distinctively religious uses of language. The discussions generally center around one of two main issues.

Problem of religious language is how t o talk about God, transcendence and spirituality. The question is not about t he existence of God but about how to ascribe and attribute finite, temporal. Drawing on his high-level training in mathematics and theology, and his lifetime of scholarship in logic and philosophy of language, White has produced a book that is at once erudite and spirited, informative and closely-argued, and - perhaps most importantly - genuinely useful to serious students of theology and philosophy of religion.5/5(1).

“Up to now, most atheists have simply criticized religion in various ways, but the point is to dispel it. In A Manual For Creating Atheists, Peter Boghossian fills that gap, telling the reader how to become a ‘street epistemologist’ with the skills to attack religion at its weakest point: its reliance on faith rather than evidence.

This book is essential for nonbelievers who want to do. The book of Revelation is by far one of the most challenging books in the Bible, yet well worth the effort to study and comprehend. In fact, the opening passage contains a blessing to everyone who reads, hears, and keeps the words of this prophecy.

Anyway, that has brought me a problem in line endemic to any organized religion, Holy Books. From the Bible to the Vedas, each of them is a document that defines their respective religions.

However, a large portion of faithful people, particularly Christianity, do not read from "the original" language their Holy Book was written in, assuming it. Namely, since the problem arises from difficulties in analyzing the meaning of religious language when it is treated as representational and factual claims, one solution would be to argue that they are best understood as having some.

Most of these resources are offline, in the form of books and video materials. Many books are available, and most are focused on signed English translations instead of American. (My love language is silent condescension.) As is true for most successful self-help books, the essential wisdom at the core of The 5 Love Languages at first seems laughably intuitive.

“Religious language is meaningless” The problem of religious language considers whether it is possible to talk about God meaningfully if the traditional The Old Testament department is committed to teaching the first thirty-nine books of the Bible, with all the aspects entailed, as the anticipation of the glorious climactic.

And Christians in particular engage extensively in utterances concerning God and their faith; after all, Christianity is preeminently a religion of verbal revelation from God and personal profession of faith.

Thus Christians are always talking "religiously" - in sermons, prayers, confessions, didactic lessons. Sort of an encyclopedia of religion, the book presents basic religious ideas, from many different traditions, in easily digestible articles.

There are major sections on the five major religions of humanity (Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) and several section with articles based on beliefs of other religious traditions.4/5.

Had the book included such a discussion, the editors might have greatly clarified some of the confusion over religion’s link to violence. Omar does point out that any justification of current “religious violence” on the basis of the Qur’an amounts to a false interpretation of that text.
