What Communicable Attributes May or May Not Mean

If we think of God as having some attributes which we also possess, we may conceivably be doing it for one or the other of two reasons. In the first place, we may be doing it because we are making God in our own image. But, in the second place, we may be doing it because God has made us in his image.” -J. Gresham Machen, The Person of Jesus: Radio Addresses on the Deity of the Savior

Sometimes True, But Mostly False

“Rather than court absurdity, however, let us graciously grant that there is indeed such a thing as unthinking religious conviction, just as there is a great deal of unthinking irreligious materialism. Let us also, more magnanimously, grant the truth of the second conviction I attributed too these writers above: that religions is violent, that religion in fact kills. At least, let us grant that it is exactly as true, as intelligent significant, as the propositions ‘politics kills’ and ‘color reddens.’ For many thing are true in a general sense, even when, in the majority of specific cases, they are false.” -David Bentley Hart
