I think this is something like a useless thread but, Everytime they put God's name or Type His name as god(small letter) I feel like Correcting them.. But I dont wanna be Rude so I just ignore it.... But isnt it that His name should be in Bigletter? If someone typed it that way I feel like changing it...



To God be the Glory!!! yeah!

I so know what you mean! It also bothers me! a lot! especially if they used a bad word attached to it...like the word 'damn'. (pls 4giv me)

Sometimes i feel like i'm the one affected by it, u knw...i just get insulted when i read one of those phrases. I pray that those people would realize that it's...a bad thing...

but also i think some didn't mean to type it that way (i hope) so it's ok...lol, but yea, it should be big letter so everyone knows we're really referring to the great God. or they'll thought just some mythical gods...if u knw what i mean :)

i luv Him so much, God bless ya'll!

I think God and any word referring to Him should be bigletter. God and god are two different things. It also bothers me when people type it wrong, even if they don't mean it.

Yeah it brothers me too. I'll notice it when I;m typing and go back and fix it. Our God should be capatizled but god liek if you're talking about Buddha or something it shouldn't. You're should to capotizal a pronoun like a name or title well God's name is God right?

Ok the reason for that is if it is your religion or your faith you capitalize God, now if i was referring to the roman gods, i would phrase it as such, the emphasis is the one you choose. however it is widely accepted that Christ is the God, which is awesome, but at the same time if a hindu was talking to me he would refer to Christ as god, ya dig? lol anyway thats how I have come to understand it, I hope it helps. Also as a form of english, to discredit my own belief of how it is used, it is taught that if its more than one, or a third world religion to be a small g aswell. It doesn't effect me as it once did. I guess with age you just take things as is, thats the world for ya :). Take care and God bless.

This has been another cryolyger post, thank you for your time;

Glory shouldn't have a capital G :P

And to be honest whether it should be god or God really depends what you believe in. For example you guys view him as an almighty creator etc so obviously to you he needs a capital G but to me god is just a figment of other peoples imaginations and nothing more, hence he does not deserve the capital letter as far as I'm concerned. Also it is the internet, and pretty much nobody uses the correct grammar anyway so correcting people is pointless

Lol! I've wanted to correct people so many times! I'm glad you guys feel the same way and that I'm not some grammatical loser! God is so awesome and wonderful! Spending like 2 seconds to capitalize the G in his name is such a simple way to give him the glory he deserves! I hope I haven't forgotten to capitalize and G's XD...thanks for the thread!~

It is only capitol letters if it specifically talks about God (our God) but if it talks about idols or other gods, you use lower case.

What makes me more mad is people taking God's Holy Name in vain constantly. Even atheists do it, yet they say that there is not God.
