God-shaped hole… or Hole-shaped God?

Pascal is famous for a quote about there being a God-shaped hole in the heart of each us.  But I’ve been thinking about what we do to God to make him fit inside that hole.  Do we cut off the pieces that don’t quite fit in?  Or do we fill in the spaces where we find our spiritual hole still not filled by this God.
Just how far are we willing to twist God to make him fit into the God-shaped hole that we defined for him?
