God is greater than we can conceive

columbus map We are in no position to draw up maps of God's psychology, and prescribe limits to His interests. We would not do so even for a man whom we knew to be greater than ourselves. The doctrines that God is love and that He delights in men, are positive doctrines, not limiting doctrines. He is not less than this. What more He may be, we do not know; we know only that He must be more than we can conceive.

C.S. Lewis, "Dogma and The Universe," God in the Dock (Eerdmans: 1970) 43.
