Abstract:The aim of the present study was to examine if the relationship between subjective religiosity and god image has the power to predict mental health outcomes through religious and non-religious individuals. Especially with regard to non-religious individuals, the god image seems to have predictive value with regard to pathology. In order to measure subjective religiosity, god image and mental health, the God Image Questionnaire and the Brief Symptom Inventory have been administered to a clinical sample (N=337) and to a non-clinical sample (N=150), aged between 18 and 65 years. Statistical analyses revealed that an interaction effect between subjective religiosity and god image predicts pathology, and especially non-religious people with a strong developed god image seem to be pathological. Thus, an inconsistency between subjective religiosity and god image seems to contribute to pathology.
