    Yes, I believe God has a sense of humor. How could he not have?? As Machin Shin, said, it'd be incredibly boring watching the world if you don't have a sense of humor. But of course, he does have a serious side though. I tend to think of God as a light hearted kind of god.

    ABsolutely He does or why would we? We are created in His image and it is the negative stuff like sin that we have that He doen't. Humor tends to be positive so ...of course he does. Look at Balaam's donkey! He made a donkey talk LOL.

    I know that G-d has a sense of humour for two reasons:
    1. He created me
    2. He created the platypus
    ;)

    Love in Yeshua,

    Yes and No...

    No in the sense that God doesn't need humor as a coping mechanism, which is a primary role of humor amongst people. Additionally, God cannot be surprised, which is a huge element in humor.

    Yes in the sense that God, as an onipotent being, can have whatever He wants. If He wants to have a sense of Humor, so shall He have it.

    reserved sense of humor. I don't recall in the bible where God laughed...

    He is quite serious, but I don't think jokes have anything wrong with them.

    How could God NOT have a sense of humour...have you lived life lately :D

    I dont remember in the Bible that it says anything about Jesus laughing do we take it to mean that he did not- of course not.

    Hiya,
    I have a couple of questions to start off with. First; where did we get our natural ability to laugh at silly or funny things; or to distinguish between the austere and the laid back moments? Secondly; do you agree that all good characteristics come from God--since we are made in His likeness? Anyway...no, I do not believe the Lord is "funny"---"fun" is not in the Bible...nor is He foolish, and proverbs blatently speaks out against foolishness. But, I think he has a certain sense of humor about Him, because why would he enable us to laugh--and give us that instinct? Everything good comes from Him--laughing isn't bad! Sooo...I completely think the Lord has a sense of humor. :)

    Have a great day in Christ :D

    In His Grip,
    Hannah :holy:

    yes. good point. it seems that there is no gene or anything like it among humans that shows that people actually have a sense of humor. it is not definate, and animals don't have a sense of humor, but people do, naturally. even my three-year-old nephew can make up jokes for us to laugh at. and since we are made in God's image, it would stand to reason that God can appreciate jokes. but I agree in that God needs no coping mechanism.
    I myself don't laugh to cover up other emotions: i laugh because it's funny.
