In general terms, 'religious thinking' is any kind of thought-process that is guided by a religious commitment of a significant sort: one engages in reasoning with religious principles and goals kept in view at all times. In the context of World War I, some 'religious thinkers' reasoned that being involved in war was not justifiable -- on the grounds of faith.
