The Type of God and Psychosis

It's not just being religious which affects your psychological well-being (positively or negatively), rather it is determined by the type of God you believe in, and your beliefs about the life after death. In a survey from USA, Believers in a 'close and loving God' had low incidence of psychosis, especially anxiety, while believers in a 'creating and judging God' had a high incidence of psychosis.

I was always fascinated by what was the concept of God in people's mind? Is it an idol as in Hindu religion. Do Muslims worship God as an idolatory form or in it's entirety! Try talking to anyone and see how blank they appear. Didnt think it as a paranoid concept.
