What does God look like? Liberals and conservatives have different ideas, NC study finds

The image on the left is what young participants in the study imagined. The one on the right was imagined by older participants in the study.

The researchers came to that realization after asking 551 American Christians what they think God looks like, so a composite mugshot could be created from the many responses.

The end result is a mugshot that shows God is white, young and clean cut, not unlike someone from an 80s boy band.

As for his expression, Mona Lisa’s vague smile comes to mind.

Liberals imagined God as “more feminine, younger, and more loving,” while conservatives have a white guy in mind who was “more powerful,” said the researchers. MORE
