This is a question from an Edexcel Past Paper 2012 Unit 3: Religious Studies – Developments.

It is a part ii) and says
"Discuss the view that the most effective type of religious language is that
which focuses on its use, rather than its meaning."

How would you answer this????
What is the difference between 'use' and 'meaning' in terms of religious language??
If I got this question I would cry.

I don't do the edexcel board but it seems like the question is asking you about meta-ethical approaches to religious language.
religious language that focuses on 'meaning' refers to cognitive approaches to language- that of naturalism and cognitivism, whereas religious language that focuses on its 'use' refers to non-cognitive approaches- including emotivism and intuitionism

that's how I would answer it but I'm doing the OCR exam so it might be different, hope this has helped though!
