When Analogies Break Down

Most of the language we use to speak of God draws on an analogy of some kind. God is like xyz.  Such and such is like God.  God is similar to zyx.  It must always be remembered that the earthly part of the analogy will always break down at some point when comparing it to God, as God is far beyond the limitations of not only earthly things but also the language we use to speak of Him.  Additionally, whenever a person says that "A" is like "B", they are also saying that "A" is unlike "B" in other ways.
