The central question in this article is whether the transcendent and immanent symbols employed to deal with suffering mutually exclude each other. With that question in mind, an investigation was conducted, among slightly more than one hundred and fifty core members of the church, into the presence of theodicy and cosmodicy symbols, as well as into their internal coherence and causal connections. To this, the question was connected whether and to what degree traditional theodicy symbols are combined with a bourgeois social and political position, and modern theodicy symbols, such as those offered by political theology, with a bourgeois-critical position.
