  • Downrating you didn't cross my mind when reading the question. Laughing, however, did. I, personally, don't believe that God is Black, being that He is so much more than any category could specify. God cannot be fit into a box depedent upon His race or anything in relation to it. I don't know that many DO believe Him to be a certain ANYthing. He just IS. All in all, no.
  • I believe that He is everything/every color. He is. They do make statues and pictures and such with God/Jesus being different ethinicity's (?spelling.) I have no problem with seeing the image of God/Jesus as Black, Asian, Mexican, or any other possibilities. It is pretty well known that Jesus had a very dark pigment, as do those of that region. So when we see Him as a white person, it is actually wrong. But again-God/Jesus are without color-as I'm sure we will be when we get to Heaven. Of course this is my own personal opinion. Great question, and glad to see you have not been down rated. God Bless, <:))))<><
  • I don't know about God being black, but Jesus is also God, but I don't think Jesus was black, because he was a Jew, I know there are blacks that are Jews as well, but back then. However if I am mistaken, please educate me kindly. There was one commercial I saw on TV the other day, where Marry was black (thus Jesus) and marry said, "Do you think they killed Jesus because he was black?" It shouldn't of, but it did, it really made me sick to hear that people would push their own agendas to the point of blasphemy. But either way weather he was black, white, orange, yellow, or pink, he died for me and I will pick up my daily cross and follow him. Personally, I don't think Jesus wants his people to be arguing over his skin color, that's not why he died on the cross.
  • God surpasses any color, any gender or race. God is not human and thus God needs not a defining category or term. This view is shared by many a people, black and white alike, as well as other races. and it's silly to think a black man would think god is black just because he is. i mean i'm sure SOME black people do, but SOME whites feel God is white, SOME middle easterns feel he is of their shade, and so forth and so forth
  • God "transcends" gender, race, and all else. he created it, he is not black or white, but of a greater image, however, it would be terrifying if he looked like Al Sharpton, or worse, Mary Ann Coulter,so I certainly hope he can take on the image of mexican possibly.
  • God is that weight that pushes the powerful into the flames of hell. Who is in power right now?
  • i'm not religious but i loved that question. i can understand most people saying he's beyond race and colour though.... still, great question. were you inspired by bruce almighty?? haha
  • God is not a person like you or me, but a force. Just the belief that god is a person means you are too uncomfertable to believe in anything you can't physically picture. The force isn't percievable by any of the six senses (yes, there are six senses).
  • I believe that "God" is a Supreme being .. God surpasses race. God just "IS". There is a Biblical quote: "Be Still and know that I AM". For me that says it all! I also think that, for people who must think of Jesus as a certain race, that he was Middle Eastern, not black or white. Jesus was a Jew from Nazareth, which is a town in the North District of Israel. Last I knew, there were no blue eyed, blonde haired, light, California skinned men in Israel; BUT - I'm sure that every different ethnic group believes that their "God" looks just like they do ... and I am sure "He" does ~ as I said before GOD far surpasses racial lines ... He is everyone :)
  • I think that when introduced to the idea of God, most people assume He looks like them, or like the people who taught them about Him. However, anyone who takes the time to study and understand the Bible with learn that God, even though we were modeled after Him, does not have a physical human body like we do. Also, when studying Biblical times, one will learn quickly that Jesus was not white, or black, but of middle eastern descent.
  • How could you be that much of a pimp and not be black?
  • i always pictured god as being clear kind of like a ghost because if you were to mix a clear paint with any colour it would become that colour to the person mixing it
  • Well all i know is Jesus wasn't white, he was a jew in a hot country so he was more like a mix race colour but whatever colour he was doesn't matter to me, everyone on earth was created by God.
  • This question provokes the question... Why didn't god create green people?
  • I know that the bible says that God made us in His image so since we look like him, he must look like us--right? So God very well could be black since many believe that humans originated in Africa... But then by the many accounts of Jesus, he was said to be of causation or middle eastern decent and since Jesus is God's only begotten Son, God is logically the same if the accounts of Jesus are accurate. But I did not answer your question because you wanted to know what blacks thought and I am not black.
  • It's so sad that you had to write "before you down rate me: I'm not being racist." But it's true, we all have to walk on egg shells in fear that something innocent that we say may be turned into something racist.
  • No downrating. This is a fair question. No matter what background we are, we tend to imagine God as looking like us more than he does others...that is only natural because of who we see around us all the time. I have seen a Maori Christ in Rotorua NZ, a Balinese Christ in Bali, a Chinese Christ, a black Christ and a white Christ, None of these are accurate representations of what Christ looks like, and hence what God looks like, but they make us feel comfortable, that God loves us and understands us.
  • God is not a human therefor he cannot be a race.. If your referring to Jesus as in Gods son, yes black people will be caught saying that Jesus was black but most of the time its in a joking manor. Intelligent people including all races have assumed considering where he lived he was not what we have seen as the typical blue eyed blonde haired man. Its assumed hes of darker complexion, more middle eastern if anything.. But for all we know could have been black, yellow,white, purple, or green.
  • A lot of answers from people who are not black. Im brown and I see all my Gods as Brown in colour. Well Krishna is supposed to be dark in colour, so is depicted blue in photos. However Hindus believe that we are all AATMAs (souls) and the Aaatma is pure light. So all being no matter what colour they are at then end of the day if you look at your Aatma then we are all the same. If you are talking about Africans then yes Im sure they will see him as Black. The Chinese have turned the Buddha into a Chinese looking Buddha when he was clearly an Indian. The point is we all see God in our own images and there is nothing wrong in that. God is Universal.
  • God is not a person so god cannot be a color. However the first living people were said to have been from Africa. But Jesus if he existed would have looked middle eastern. (not white) and Adam and Eve if they existed would have been black (not white)
  • Humm, this is referring to the acceptance that God is a human form, and moreso, one with a skin tone. haha. I personally don't think God is a human form. If we're talking about Jesus, however, I would say he was probably in resemblance to today's Muslims. I'm sure he would look just like the other Isrealites and citizens of that time and location. I doubt he was a black guy walking about amongst brown people. because if that were the case, those 12 people weren't disciples, they were people goin "what the hell?" and following him around to get a better look.
  • IF GOD WERE REAL he would be a spirit, or force, one of every color, and of none.
  • Everyone knows God is black, haven't you seen Bruce Almighty?
  • i don't know about everyone but he certainly wasn't a pale face.
  • no blacks dont believe god is black. i'm black and i dont believe that i believe go is too powerful and unique to have a certain color. and i'm sure if you believe blacks believe god is black also whites must believe at a certain astinct that god is white.
  • God is a spiritual being. He is invisible to man. Do you think a spiritual creature possess colored flesh like the human race, the flying creatures in the sky, the fish in the sea, or the animals that walk upon the surface of the earth?
  • Is she not?
  • Not being black, I cannot answer as a black person, but I believe that God is all things to all people..I don't imagine that he is any color.
  • I dont believe got isa specific colour. I think he just is how you see him in your own mind. He could even be a frog if you saw him that way! To some he is a voice not an image.
  • YES... There are those who are African American that Believe that God is black as is thier idea about Jesus... Unfortunately it is a misunderstanding about Spiritual things because God doesnt have a race & Jesus was born a Jew....
  • I am Black. I can only speak for myself not my entire ethnic group. I believe that God is a spirit. Spirits lack physical forms so height, weight, eye color, yes and even skin color are non issues.
  • People should think more about resembling God's traits than worrying about his appearance.
  • Hehe, I think this question is much like asking "Do Australians think that God is Australian?" or "Do children think that God is a child?", or "Do blondes think that God has blonde hair?" or stuff like that, there's no reason to even make the difference between 'black', 'white', etc. It is the same as verbally segregating society over hair colour, age, gender, nationality, etc IMO; of course there can be differences in culture between say, England and Africa, but to choose skin colour as a difference is meaningless IMO. Besides, if the Bible is literal, then I guess "God is black", because as far as we know, humanity began in Africa somewhere didn't it? *shrugs* I'm not expert, heh (I'm not picking on you for asking the question btw, I'm just saying how I feel the verbal segregation of humanity is pointless)
  • the belief is that God is nor male or female, black or white and so on, god is a superior power which cannot be defined. or so i hear.....
  • God isn't black, white, male, female, gay, straight, etc. God is everything, and is the saviour of everyone who believes. God is all of us, and all of the universe. I believe God is all things...
  • No down rating from me. It is true what everyone here has said. God is a force and has no color or form. Jesus was born in a place where everyone had color to their skin. Maybe not black, but definatly, not white. But, as with all people our concern should be of his heart condition. His love and desire to teach God's will. We shouldn't divide people by color. We should be deeper and look into the spirt and heart of the living soul. I guess it short, it doesn't really matter.
  • Let me ask you this question: Do white people believe God is white? Personally I don't think god has any skin colour, after all he is not human. On the other hand when I think of the stereotypical jesus character you imediately think he is white, although I actually believe he probably had fairly dark skin considering the region he was born in.
  • God is not really any color or He could be all colors; God is not a physical being. God is totally beyond our understanding except what He reveals to us of Himself. Although God is not physical, people tend to think of Him as having human attributes; thus a Black person would probably imagine God as being Black. Although God does not have an attribute of race or ethnicity; His most complete revelation to us is as Jesus Christ who is the Incarnate Son of God or the God Man. Jesus Christ the man was a Middle Eastern Jew. So, he was not Black but I would venture to say that he was darker than I am. Anyway, Jesus' ethnicity is not the important thing; He came to Earth for all peoples for all time.
  • i dont believe gods any color. and hes a spirit and he can be any color he wants to be
  • thats not really racist. I am black, and i do not beleive that God is black or white. he is a supreme being so he does not have any colors. he can be anything he wants to be, so that means he is every color.
  • We need heroes too!
  • I dont know what blacks think about God, But I dont care what color He is, and I dont care what color Jesus is, its not the color, as in humans, that make them what they are.
  • Then God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. (Genesis 1:26) All human beings are made in the image and like of God. So if human beings come in different colors then somehow God can come in different colors too. Here is one example of a miracle of God's that shows sensitivity to culture and race: The Blessed Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to a humble Native American at Tepeyac, a hill northwest of what is now Mexico City as a Native American in Native American dress. http://sancta.org/ With love in Christ.
  • I'm a white male: I figure God as a black woman.
  • Would it really matter?
  • God does not have a color.
  • Well to start off, do you really believe that "God" is whatever race/nationality you are? In additon to, what makes everyone so caught up with the race that IT is suppose to be. Because last I checked and read all of the responses "God" was a "spirit" but almost every staement includede "He" in them. Now If "God" is a "Spirit" It cant be a he or a race at all. People should really pay more attention to what they believe in and let go of the psychological containment and control thats been going on for so long since lets say day 1 of year 1 on this planet. Seek truth for self and in addtion to, visit truthism.com. -Real
  • That's one of the big problems about this country... someone "not black" being called a racist just for mentioning the word black! STUPID! STUPID! world..
  • if you really believed in him, why would you care about his skin color?
  • White people think Jesus and God's white But Jesus is most likely middle eastern, olive skinned, with curly hair. As For God he's nothing I just picture him as an old man Trillions of years old that glows a bright light but talks with old calm black voice kind of like Jmaes Earl. Jones
  • yeah I think most Black ppl would see God and Jesus as white, but we are taughth he loves everyone, so we dont question it too much. I dont know if you go to church much, but the idea that God loves everyone and of every variety and is benevolent is hammered into your head. Most bibles have very european versions of Jesus, and afew black themed picture bibles show him as Black. Most Blacks dont actually know much about the bible other than what they were taught by a well meaning parent or chuch person. Some, after becoming enlightened, realized its a religion forced on us after we were taken as slaves and others, realizing it was written by shephearders using stolen folklore, then reconsturcted by the catholic cousil ( nicean I think ) to future the councils own agenda, reject it. I wish AB had spellchecker like Y!A. I really do.
  • I'm white..I don't see God as being black or white or male or female...I don't know what it is.[and I won't DR you]
  • I do believe the question was: do black people believe God is black? My opinion is some might think so b/c Jesus was of a dark complexion then he was black in skin tone. However--we all know dark complexion doesn't classify being a person being black. So the question should have been do black believe Jesus was black. God is a spirit. According to the bible jesus was 100% man and w/ 100% God spirit in him. we all have a spirit w/ no color. Our bodies represent diversity w/ should spark interest and creation. not division and distruction. I think God was cool for becoming one of us for a while to show us love conquers all.
  • the son of God..,Jesus was born a jew, light skin, light color hair ( medium brown or light brown), and brown eyes ( dove brown). that is the physical. now jesus had died on the cross and now is with his father. it is hard to fathom anything spiritual. even the universe. someday you will have an epiphany (sudden realization)
  • god created every one so i believe that god has no colour. What i heard from my fellow "black" people is that jesus is black. i don't believe that either cause he was born in Bethlehem and the people of bethlehem are not black or white. So i do not believe in any blond hair blue eye jesus.
  • not all do . Where i go to study the bible, we all are apart of united worship and we know that Jesus Christ is a Jew. Its in the bible
  • hey I'm not black, and I think god is, so I think that it depends on how you think, or how often you think about it
  • If their is a God, then God would not have any color. Jesus on the other hand, whom is not God, had very dark skin. He was either a light skinned black, or a very dark shade of brown. He definitely does not look like the Hippie that the church portrays him as.
  • as far as knowledge and scriptures are concerned people have different conceptions about religion.but the philosophy of a philosopher is to negate the other philosophy and establish his logic .otherwise he is not a philosopher.as far as the 108 upanishadas and all the vedic knowledge and the research of sages over millions of years and inspite of philosophical differences all have agreed there is only one grand daddy of all and no other anD that LORD KRISHNA is THE SUPREME ALMIGHTY.AND AS FAR AS THE _COLOUR OF HIS SKIN IS CONCERNED IT IS VERY DARK BLUISH ALMOST THE COLOUR BLACK AND IT IS NOT HUMAN NEGROID (AFRICAN)BLACK .HIS SKIN IS ABSOLUTE SPIRITUAL.he is also the beholder of supreme beauty and his beauty multiplies itself every moment_therefore you just cannot insult god by calling a hunchback_______________
  • Do you believe God is white?.....what difference does this make one way or the other?
  • god's not supposed to have a technical body he wasn't a creation he was the creator
  • Some of my black friends do. I'm not sure it matters if you believe in Him.
  • I'm interested in how so many people are willing to say that God has no color (God represents all of us), but still believe that God has to have a gender (must be male...not representing 50% of us).
  • God does not have a color, God just is. God is a cool dude, likes jazz, hates Kenny G and thinks that Oprah needs to lose a few.
  • I think He appears to each of us as we believe he should appear. I really don't think it matters to him if we think he's black, white, red, yellow, brown, purple, green or a bright light.
  • I don't know, some might, just like some caucasians think He is white.
  • Some do, some don't. It depends upon the person and the deity involved. This question is asked as if all black people share the same beliefs, which is no more true than that all caucasian people share the same beliefs.
  • Most black people would say God is Black. Most white would tell a black hes all colored, or he has no color, you can see him or some crap like that. Most whites would tell everybody else he is white. Dont beleave me. If your black ask a white person then go look a a film with Jesus in it.?????????????????/
  • some do and with some logic and reasoning. the middle east is just north of africa. obviously, if man originated in this area they would possibly be a darker skinned people. blacks surmise that the queen of sheeba etc were ancestors of Christ. its possible...but highly unlikely. most middle easterners and jews are of a slightly darker tiny than "whites". but most modern day jews are fairly "white". although there are many ethiopian and dark skinned jews too. m guess, is Jesus was of a tanned color, both from His outdoor lifestyle and tint of His skin. but probably not dark enough to be black. growing up as a rancher and being "white", i used to look like a dark mexican from years of outdoor life. i wouldnt argue with anyone on this, as its really meaningless to worry about. Jesuus was probably not white, of course, nor black. He has been described both in the bible and outside of it as being nondescript in all manners of His life. not ugly not overly handsome; just an everyday man
  • Surely that's about as racist as white people thinking God is white?
  • Chances are he was not black. Blacks were commonly mentioned in Biblical texts as 'Nubian', though Jesus was never referred to as such yo...
  • OF course he is. But Jesus was brown. Because Mary was white.
  • Nobody is black. If a person was really black then you could not see them. So we are all just different shades of brown. Some darker than others. It's an evolution (shut up) thing.
  • I think by you asking if god was black, you are assuming that Jesus was God and that God walked the earth as a human Christianity during Jesus time did not teach that he was god. Matter of fact Jesus even said that after he was gone, many of his teachings would be corrupted. Notice: "I know that after my going away oppressive wolves will enter in among YOU and will not treat the flock with tenderness, 30 and from among YOU yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves." - ACTS 20:29,30 "However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances..." - 1 Timothy 4:1 The Trinity Trinity (definition) – That the Father, the Son (Jesus), and holy ghost are all together god, each eternal, each almighty, and none greater of less than the other. The belief that Jesus Christ is god, is based on the idea of the trinity. But if you take a look at the history of this teaching: First the word trinity or the teaching is never found in the bible. Also the Encyclopaedia Britannica says that the belief of the trinity or that Jesus was god or was part of god did not even exist until two to three hundred years after the death of Jesus. The Encyclopedia Americana says - “Fourth century Trinitarianism was a deviation from early Christian teaching.” This teaching was adopted into “Christianity” from pagan religions from Egypt, Babylon, from Hinduism, and even from the philosopher Plato that taught the trinity belief 400 years before Jesus. Finally the trinity became the central teaching of the church not because of the bible but because of the order of the Roman Emperor Constantine who was pagan himself. He really couldn’t care less about bible teachings but only wanted to end the debate between church leaders to keep unity in his kingdom. After he made that decision in the year 381, anyone that openly disagreed with the trinity were violently persecuted or killed with the permission of the church. Back to the Scriptures After that history lesson In reading the bibles record of Jesus, Jesus never claimed to be God or any part of God. Everything he said about himself indicated that he did not consider himself equal to God in any way – not in power, not in knowledge, or age. The bible calls Jesus “the only-begotten Son” of God (John 1:14; 1 John 4:9) - First off, John 1:18 – “No man has seen God at any time…” (The bible says no man has ever seen god but thousands saw and interacted with Jesus during his earthly life.) - God has no beginning and no end. Psalms 90:2 – “…even from time indefinite to time indefinite you are God.” But the bible says that Jesus was “the firstborn of all creation.” (Colossians 1:15) Also see (Revelation 3:14) Unlike God, Jesus was created and had a beginning. - Notice another scripture. When a man came to fall at Jesus’ feet and then called him “Good Teacher”, Jesus said to him at Mark 10:17, 18 “Why do you call me good? Nobody is good, except one, God.” (If Jesus himself was god would that statement make any sense? Jesus always directed any praise to god, not to himself.) - John 14:28 – “The Father is greater than I.” (Jesus talking) - 1 Corinthians 11:3 - “…the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.” (The bible always talks of God of being superior in power to Jesus.) - Philippians 2:6 – “…Jesus Christ, who, although he was existing in God’s form (as a spirit in heaven) gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God.” - Also 1 Timothy 2:5 Says that the disciples viewed Jesus as the “one mediator between God and men,” not as God himself. A mediator is obviously someone separate from those who need mediation, not part of one of the two parties that need mediation. ---That’s just a short list of the many accounts since I did want to make this to long--- But the bible is clear and consistent about the relationship of God to Jesus. Jesus Christ always distinguishes himself from God and showed that he never desired to be seen or worshipped as god. That he only wished to do the will of his father. Consider Psalms 83:18 – “That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the most high over all the earth.” Isaiah 12:2 – “Look! God is my salvation. I shall trust and be in no dread; for Jah Jehovah is my strength and my might, and he came to be the salvation of me.” Jesus stressed the importance of his father’s name at John 17:26 – “I have made your name known to them and will make it known.” Even in Jesus model prayer: - Matthew 6:9 – “YOU must pray, then, this way: “Our Father in the heavens let your name be sanctified…” Another thing Many people don’t know that when they say Hallelujah, it means “praise Jah” short for Jehovah. Even Jesus’ name itself means “Jehovah is Salvation” The mother of the prophet Moses was named Jochebed, which means “Jehovah Is Glory” The prophet Joel in the bible, his name means, “Jehovah is God” The prophet Elijah in the bible name means “My God Is Jehovah” Isaiah’s name means “Salvation of Jehovah” Hezekiah, Josiah, Nehemiah, Obadiah, Zechariah and Zephaniah all are well-known Bible names whose meanings involve Jehovah, or Jah, the shorter poetic form of Jehovah’s name. Even many people’s names today have Jehovah in their meaning: Johnson means “Jehovah has favored” The name Jonathan means, “Jehovah has given” Joshua means, “Jehovah is salvation” or “Jehovah rescues” Jacqueline, Jackie, Jacquelyn, John and Jack means, “Jehovah has been gracious” Chanya means “The Grace of Jehovah” Kayla means “Jehovah has given” Joey means "Jehovah increases" Jesse means “Jehovah exists” Jeremiah and Jeremy means “appointed by Jehovah” Josiah means “Jehovah supports” Joe or Joesph means “May Jehovah give increase” Jane, Jan, Janelle, Janet, Janice, Janie, Janine, Joan, Joanne, Jodie, Joni, Jonie, Joanna, Johannah all are variations that mean “Jehovah is gracious” One last thing: Also remember that “god” is not a name, it’s a title. Just like “boy” or “king”, “God” and “Lord” are titles, “God” is anything you choose to worship. Your money can be your “God”, your possessions can be a “God”, but the only God the bible points to is Jehovah, God’s name. ---Explanation of pictures--- -The "Christian" Trinity was just a pagan befief that was incorporated into the church hundreds of years after Christ. The pictures are of the Hundu trinity, then the ancient Egyptian trinity, and finally the "Christian" trinity. -An ancient painting of the scene in Nicaea when Emperor Constantine made his decision-
  • Did I see your picture beside your question?--either the lighting was dark, or you're black. (Hope that doesn't sound bad...just an observation)...So, you telle me? What do you think? I'm not black, so I wouldn't know.
  • Yes in Rev Chapter 1 he say my head is white like wool, my eyes are as blazing fire( which means his eyes are dark circles like a raccoon, and his feet are brass as of out of a furnace which means he is brown. If there was rewriting of the bible wool hair is as sheep and sheep hair is nappy like a black person.
  • ... I'm white, God doesn't have a race. God isn't human. He's not from a country or continent in particular. Adam & Eve were black, and Jesus was jewish. But God the Father isn't black, white, arab, asian, whatever. He's God.
  • i'm white and i think that God would be dark if not completely black
  • Whites created God (or "the" God, anyway) so they naturally made him white. People who believe in this God are too blinded by their faith to see the truth. God is a concept, and it only exists in our minds, no color, no race, no intellect, no form, no shape, no humanity whatsoever; God is pure thought, thought that can be good to some and evil to others.
  • I don't really think that black people belive God is black just beacause they are Black. If that were the case Asian people would think God is Asian, Eskimos would think God was....Eskimoian?:) From my perspective I belive all that really matters is that God is good no matter what color,race or gender you choose to worship him as. We really need to re-instill faith in God to our young children, as any half way intelligent person can see what the current condition of our world has degraded to by letting faith slip away.
  • Jesus was Jew with a few mixture of other races. The women mention in the genelogy where from non Jew backgrounds.
  • *Is black* I dunno all black people but well some do and some don't. lol
  • I have never thought of God in terms of color but i would imagine Jesus was black or at least very dark skinned.
  • Most folks who believe in God claim that he is invisible. That's why you can't see him. Invisible means no color whatsoever, like transparent. Black and white are totally irrelevant.
  • God is formless, God is energy, we all are energy. What you see in the mirror and all around you every day is only the densest manifestation of existence. God is beyond that, far beyond it. +3 from me.
  • I have seen pictures of a black Jesus for sale in stores, most likely meaning that some people (Black persons?) would be interested to buy them. See the link below. My 2 cents. http://www.dogpile.com/dogpile/ws/results/Images/black%20jesus/1/408/TopNavigation/Relevance/iq=true/zoom=off/_iceUrlFlag=7?_IceUrl=true&padv=qall%3dblack%2bjesus%26qphrase%3d%26qany%3d%26qnot%3d
  • Why do you believe he's white? He was born raised and lived in the middle east. Chances are he looked more arab than caucasian
  • Very good question. As an African American I beleive what the Bible teaches about race and gender. The Bible teaches that God is Spirit and this signifies that God is not concerned with colour but with the character of a human being. Spirit signifies God caters to no ethnic background and that Spirit is inclusive of all human beings. The Bible also suggest that God deals not exalt one gender over the other either stating that He is neither male nor female. That is all we humans need is God taking on an identity that points to a specific ethnic background and gender. We sterotype enough and have our finger pointed in another person's face enough for God to open this can of worms. Just know that God is no repecter of persons. Thank God for this. Mel
  • What colour God is. Who knows.. However they part of the trinity that spent time on earth would have middle eastern features as this is were he spent his time whilst on earth.
  • I am black or as they say brown and my God is black. I am Krishna and my God is also Krishna and the black goddess called Kali, Meaning black are my dearest!Of course that would not stop for God being white!
  • This isn't all that difficult, friends. Jesus, when He was chillin' with us mortals, was Jewish in race. Therefore, He looked Jewish. (Freakish, I know.) God, however is a spirit. He doesn;t look like us - WE look like HIM. Does that make sense? What I'm saying is - we were made in His image, so we have traits that reflect Him. He, however, cannot be fit into one racial box that we can quantify as "God is white, God is black, God looks Hispanic or Indian or Native American or Oriental." God is... God. For all we know, He could be completely translucent, with skin of no color - just a spirit with a vaguely human shape. We don't know. We will not know until we see Him face-to-face. So, until then, let's stop pretending we know what we're talking about, 'kay?
  • God thinks your racist... not me
  • man are you dumb!!!a god is not a person with skin you retard!!!Free your mind. Mental slavery should be a crime. do not be controlled by a cult. you racist retard!!!
  • I am Black, but I do not believe God is black--How can a spirit have pigmentation? Perhaps Color is a Pigment of our imagination.
  • I Believe God can be any color he wants to be...I mean he made the Heavens and Earth!
  • Let us suppose that we do. Would that be a problem to you? And if it is, please, explain to me why?
  • God is a Spirit, therefore he can't be any color. When God, the Son, came to earth, born of a virgin. He was Jewish according to the Bible.
  • God has melanin? Does he sunburn?
  • I understand what you are asking. I guess I haven't talked to enough black Christians to know if they think that Jesus is black. I could talk about the lineage of Christ in Matthew, etc. and say what the Bible says about his ethnicity, but I don't know what black people believe in this matter. However, I may get some opinions from some black Christians that I know that are strong in the faith.
  • I think that God simply looks like the sun, only white and with no flames--only light--and not ball-shaped. Jesus, however, was probably whatever race Mary was.
