From the ancient Greeks we have inherited the idea of God as a mathematician/ geometer deity; thus the idea that - ultimately - creation is abstract. This goes with the implicit understanding that apparently 'living Beings' on earth, are more truly seen in terms of abstract, spiritual, eternal and unchanging entities.
This contrasts with the much older and more universal (but including Ancient Hebrew) idea of God as Parent/s; and a person or persons - the idea that ultimately creation is pro-creation. This goes with an 'animistic' creation, composed of Beings that are alive and conscious.
One could consider both of these as metaphors, or as partial truths. And there are intermediate, or mixed states. Many Christians seem to believe a composite or half-way house between the Greek and Hebrew concepts - where God is a person but also an omnipotent deity defined in terms of abstract attributes; and creation is partly procreation (e.g. Men as God's children) - yet a procreation abstractly conceptualized.
It was a conceptual breakthrough of the Mormon Restoration that - at least in theology - God became more fully parental, and creation became (more) fully procreative.
Yet the Mormon Restoration did not take procreation through to a fully procreative understanding of creation; because Mormonism did not extend to an 'animistic' metaphysics of all creation (including the 'mineral' world) as living and conscious, purposive Beings.
Because Christians regard Love as primary; we can see that the concept of Love must be very different in terms of the degree to which God is understood as a person versus an abstract deity. Both views of Love can be seen in the modern world: Love as something like a universal force/ energy/ vibrational-frequency or 'filed'; or Love as a personal relationship between Beings - where beings include all of creation.
And - in terms of the original, primary creation - Love can be seen as a quasi-mathematical state of eternalness - like a field-of-order including all-that-is; or as something relational that is-happening between specific living, conscious Beings.
