Attributes of God

In the next few bloggs I will address what I call the five attributes of God. I've heard about other  having as many as 40 different Attributes of God but when I investigate them i found they all fell into 5 major attributes.

Sometimes attributes are mistaken for characteristics but they are clearly different. Attributes are the things that we can know or identify as ( not with) God. Characteristics are those thing that God expresses toward man.

For example height, weight, and hair color are all attributes of a man, while kindness, a deciteful and abrasive are characteristics of a man. God's Characteristics are forgivining, merciful, gracious, longsuffering, kind and never forsaking.

Assuming this to be true here are the five attributes of God;
