    Hey everyone,

    I am currently revising for my mocks that are coming up in November and I am trying to distinguish the difference between propositional and non - propositional revelation without getting confused.

    Is this correct?

    Propositional
    - Mainly based on a transcendent God (outside of space and time) that is revealed from true historical events, a prophet or religious God and scriptures.

    - Encourages an 'I - it' relationship with God.

    - Literal approach, mostly in terms of religious texts.

    Non - Propositional

    - Mainly based on revelation from an imminent God that acts through human experience.

    - Encourages what Buber terms an 'I - thou' relationship with God.

    - Interpreted approach, mostly in terms of religious texts.

    What category would these come under?

    1. God's revelation via the Trinity (Father, Son and the Holy Spirit)

    2. Mystical experiences such as Jesus revealing himself on toast.

    3. Answers to prayer when God responds by healing people.

    4. Miracles like Ganesh that cried milk and the observation of nature.

    5. Guru Nanak founding Sikhism after having a religious experience by a river.

    If you can categorise any of the following examples or have any valuable information to add to help me distinguish the differences between propositional and non - propositional revelation I will be more than grateful!

    Thanks a lot,
