Their are five conditions in defining the theological concept of symbol:

1.  A sensible reality

2.  Which renders us present to and

3.  Involves a person objectively in

4.  A transforming experience of

5.  A transcendent mystery.

This is most significant because contra to Liberation theology, people do not go to Church for social or political instruction.
