One good place to read about Reed Richards' theological beliefs is the story "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit" in Marvel Double Shot #3 (March 2003). In this story, Reed Richards talks to his son Franklin about God (http://comics.org/details.lasso?id=277037).
In the MC2 future timeline, Reed Richards uses a robotic construction as his remotely controlled body. In this guise, he is known as "Big Brain," a member of the heroic Fantastic Five. "Big Brain" was created by Tom DeFalco and first appeared in What If (vol. 2) #105
