- ATTRIBUTES OF GOD
- those characteristics uniquely applicable to the divine BEING. Two classical ways of arriving at the attributes of God have been1) the way of negation, via negativa rather than saying what God is, say what He is not; e.g. "God is unlimited";2) the way of ANALOGY, via analogia, which compares God to things known from human experience; e.g. "God the Father," likens God to a human Father.
