As indicated by the thousands of Christian Books at the many Christian Book stores, our ability to internalize, think, ponder, cogitate, and write the many wonderful characteristics of God are innumerable. Truly, we possess an amazing capacity to envision our creator.
And perhaps, this might also be where we suffer the most. Our exercise of conceptualizing God and His Son, might satisfy us to the point where we fail to act on the very images of which we pursue.
This arrangement puts us into conflict by projecting a diametric paradigm, that is, we have: 1. the conceptualization of the intellect and: 2., the actual performance (operationalization} through action.

He is action and that is what makes him
