The salience of conflict is positively correlated with belief in a punitive (versus loving) God across cultures (283).
This hypothesis was tested across four different countries; Brazil, United States, Germany, and Singapore. Similar to study 1, this study also tested for loving god correlations as well as punitive god, however the findings regarding a loving god were not significant. Note that a number of different models were tested; we list results from only one model. For a complete list of variables tested see Table 2 on page 284 and Table 3 on page 285.
