What Color Is God?

People have a tendency to want to remake God in their image.

Thereís the story of a white guy and a black guy who were arguing over what color God is. The white guy insisted, "God is white!" The black guy said, "No, heís black!" They both died about the same time, stood outside heavenís gate, and were still carrying on their argument.

"Iím glad youíre here," the white guy said. "Now youíll see Iím right. God is white!"

They asked the angel to open the gate. When he did, they heard a big voice say to them, "Buenos noches!"
