Something about words

Artist: Michelangelo Caravaggio

Very often the problem between fundamentalists and other religious people revolves around the meaning of words. It helps if we maintain a humble and respectful recognition of how limited verbal language can be:

... God is not objectifiable. Words serve only as mute gestures pointing to the irreducible, ineffable dimension where God subsists.

-- Martin Buber
