“There is God. And there are images of God. And some people don’t see any difference between the two . . . . They simply assume that who they believe God to be and who God truly is are one and the same. God is as large (or as small) as they make the Infinite One to be, and none of the beliefs they entertain about God could possibly be wrong . . . . Our hearts become factories of idols in which we fashion and refashion God to fit our needs and desires.”
