Distinctio


Distinctio (dis-tinc’-ti-o): Eliminating ambiguity surrounding a word by explicitly specifying each of its distinct meanings.

This “truth” is not self evident, scientific, or even factual.  This “truth” resonates with hope as a quality of faith enabling one to envision, plan, posit, and actualize a better future–it is a compelling representation of a beloved possibility.
