Which God is Your God?

There is an interesting study from Baylor University that ties the view people have of God with their moral beliefs.

What is fascinating about this is that, for Christians at least, you can pretty well predict whether someone is a good person based on the relationship they believe God has with the world.

Maybe this isn't all that unexpected; if someone believes in a vengeful authoritarian God and that man was created in God's image, then of course they're going to be a bad person. Still, it is good to see some numbers.

This is the chart I use to tell whether someone is a good person.

I only use one circle to determine if someone is good. The answer is always no.
