Daily Thought -- May 27, 2010

"Some people may be surprised to learn that we look like God. One prominent religious scholar has even taught that imagining God in the form of man is creating a graven image and is idolatrous and blasphemous. But God Himself said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness' (Genesis 1:26; Moses 2:26)."

Robert D. Hales, "Seeking to Know God, Our Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ," Ensign, Nov. 2009, 30

I don't know if I've ever heard anyone expressly say they don't think God looks like us/we look like God (unless you count "God is a spirit/has no form/is everything"), but yeah, it would follow, wouldn't it? Two eyes, two ears, nose, mouth, upright posture, hair, four limbs, five digits on each, all in human proportions.
