The Attributes of God
An attribute is a quality that distinguishes something from other things. For instance, a chicken has attributes that make it different from a duck. We use the word chicken to call up attributes in our mind, so we can communicate with each other.
To ignore attributes is to make communication impossible. We do not speak of God as though He is one who cannot be distinguished from others. In fact, this was precisely the sin described of the heathen in Romans 1:23: “And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.” The sin of idolatry is conceiving of God as having the attributes of a creature.
These articles may very well deliver you from idolatry.
