Regarding the incarnation, I find ‘100% man, 100% God’ and ‘fully man, fully God’ both to be ugly and ambiguous.

I much prefer ‘truly man, truly God’. It’s not like every single aspect of the Incarnate Son of God is divine. Nor is it that somehow there is some precise ratio in which he is no more God than he is man.
