A definition de-fines, that is, makes finite for the understanding. The Greek term for definition is horzimos—where we get “horizon”—and it means a “boundary”, specifically “to draw a boundary around a thing’s being.”

This operation is not possible with respect to God.
God cannot be properly defined. As the Actual Infinite and the Transcendent as such, no boundary can be drawn around God.

Terms and definitions can be formulated that point or gesture toward God, however, a discourse of analogy.
God can neither be known fully—except by God—nor is God utterly unknown, a meaningless, incomprehensible X.

The surest way to know God is not to theorize but to PARTICIPATE in the life of God.

We all already do this some, since “in God, we live and move and have our being."
