Metaphors and other figurative language are crucial cognitive processes for producing meaning. Metaphors are more than a rhetorical device because we actually use them to reason about and make truth claims regarding topics such as salvation, and God.

It shows why Christians often arrive at different legitimate ways to understand the Bible and various doctrines.
