Models and qualifiers

Words and titles applied to God function as models.

Models always need to be qualified - qualifiers.

A model can help a person to gain real insight and understand more clearly what is being talked about - disclosure.

Religious language functions as a model that leads us to an understanding of God.

A person comes to understand by using the model (disclosure) and a new level of understanding is achieved. So the many titles and images of God function as models that can eventually lead us to an understanding of God.
