How Great Thou Art-2

Does the concept of God violate the concept that A is A?

Not if God chose to become a human being.

I can say that the most significant intellectual point that occurred to me in my journey to faith was sentence I just stated above. I distinctly remember driving along the sea in Alaska one day thinking about how hypothetically clever it would be of a god to circumvent the Law of Identity problems discussed in my last post by, well, by stepping into history and by becoming a human being.

If God were to became "human," even if only for a short time, then God has to that extent become definable. As such, A is still A, is it not?
