However they are often confused.
And they lend themselves to confusion because they are spelt the same, only one is capitalised.
I suspect though that they are deliberately confused by powerful institutions in the interests of maintaining their power.
Yet, you have caught the difference and frankly I think it is a fascinating difference.
As I see it, the difference is between the literate and the spoken.
The literate only see a flat surface and trances within trances within trances are invisible to them so they say they don't exist. And as a corollary, they say God doesn't exist.
However the spoken word is comfortable with trances nestled inside one another. Their existence is obvious to the spoken word as is the existence of God.
In the beginning was the spoken Word, and the spoken Word was with God, and the spoken Word was God.
It's called transubstantiation. It is a moment of religious enchantment. And is brought about entirely by the spoken word.
And naturally literate Protestants don't believe in transubstantiation. And why should they, they don't believe in the spoken word. And so the spoken word no longer enchants them.
