For some, couching theology in contemporary (and non-Christian) terms can seem to be a theological method which is novel and dangerous. By examining the book of Revelation, we can see that John (the writer responsible for recording the visions of Revelation) has used elements from pagan and magical language and symbolism to develop his theology. This method does not compromise his message, but rather enhances it. He further shows that it is possible to use very alien elements in the construction of a faithful theology. In his boldness, John anticipates and gives a biblical precendent for the theological message known currently as inculturation.
