God is a young white dude who looks like he plays the acoustic guitar, according to a study of more than 500 American Christians.

The final result is a God that looks like a guy named Todd. God plays his acoustic guitar at annoying times. God owns at least three pairs of Rainbow flip-flops.

God hugs for three seconds too long. God fist bumps. God thinks you should try this new chronological Bible written in modern slang, it’s really deepened his devotional time.

God wants you to be safe, so he’ll let you drink High Life in the church basement just this one time.
People's tendency to believe in a God that looks like them is consistent with an egocentric bias,"

"People often project their beliefs and traits onto others, and our study shows that God's appearance is no different—people believe in a God who not only thinks like them, but also looks like them."

The only aspect that broke the rule of people seeing themselves in God was in gender: Men and women both saw a male God. The patriarchy is a hell of a thing.

Praise Todd.

I think I saw him once, standing on a street corner, with one of those "Will work for food" signs!

Is it just me, or does the new "Todd God" look a little creepy?

If god looks like me he must be very handsome! 😛

But he might have a weird sense of humor, too. 🙂

I do like the acoustic guitar.

I like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo T-shirt. 'Cause it says like, I wanna be formal but I'm here to party too. I like to party, so I like my Jesus to party.

Or maybe the demon/murderer BOB in "Twin Peaks"?

I want you to know I have nothing to do with this (my last name is Todd).

Who in the hell are these men?

So God's name is Todd? Todd the God. Yeah, I can see that.

Master of delivery.

Belief in God's should be classified as a mental disorder.

right up there with ppl believing they live in a democracy.
