This is good. Dr. Neil Gillman writes here:

He concludes, “Theological literal‑mindedness is idolatrous, not because it claims to describe the transcendent God in human and natural terms–what other terms can we use?–but rather, because it insists that these descriptions are literally accurate and true. […] The assumption that God’s nature can be conveyed in a literal way by our natural language is as idolatrous as building a golden calf.

We must speak about God, and we must also recognize that all of our God‑talk is built on a skeleton of metaphors, constructs, models, paradigms, or, more technically, “symbols.””
