"If we are to convert our heathen neighbours, we must understand their culture," (C.S. Lewis, Christian Reflections, "Christianity and Culture", p. 17)

[edit] Mormon terminology

Theological terminology provides a significant barrier for the Christian evangelist. That is, Mormons and Christians tend to use the same words when speaking about their theology. For example, a Mormon can use the word "atonement" in a sentence and use it in a very different way than a Christian would. What becomes realized is that Mormons and Christians have a commonality in terms, yet are differentiated in their meanings. Thus, it proves extremely helpful for both parties to consistently ask what one means when they use various terminology. Even something as simple as "God" needs to be explained and defined in conversation. Without such clarifications, it becomes too easy to either talk past one another or think that you agree on something you actually don't.
