    Please use the correct Grammar. The grammar law is: any title, any name is being written with capital letter.
    God's name is God, hence, you better write God, not god. OK? God has personality, and many names. Most recognizable one is word God.

    And pay respect to the title of the book. Write "Bible", not "bible." Who has taught you to blaspheme the Holy Bible and the names of the God?

    Why Holy Ghost, and not Holy Spirit? A ghost is hallucination. The Spirit is God. Why to confuse God with a hallucination or a devil?

    God is not the a name but a description. A description that did not come into use until after the 6th century AD . Your gods name is Yahweh, Jehova, Elohim... there are several other names he goes by in the bible.

    So, it is mandatory to accept the rules of others? You seem to speak the same language as Putin the Wise, The Great, The Destroyer of Rules, the one who has to satisfy his own misguided beliefs, etc. :oops:

    Please explain why anyone has to obey (or even respect) the rules of others. :sheep: :eyes:

    Are those names/titles written that way in the orginal teaching?
    How do Aramean write God or Jesus?
    What does the dead sea scrolls say about the name of God?
    English is not the orginal language it was written in

    Why satan not Satan? Don't ask others to use correct grammar if you yourself refuse to do so.

    " The grammar law "

    I googled for " English language grammar laws ", and I found out entries for the "English language grammar rules" and none for the "laws", is there no difference between the rules and the " laws", please?

    Does it need the OP to make any corrections, please? Right?

    Regards

    And perhaps you should practice what you preach, as implied by @Viker in her post.

    PS I still use God and Bible, as for much else because I see it as a common courtesy, and in the hope that many with religious beliefs will extend the same courtesies towards those without any such - in that they believe something else or just don't accept whatever belief.

    You mean Satan, right?

    Let's see: Jesus killed a fig tree that wasn't his that everyone knew was out of season just to make a point. I'd call that wrong.

    Same with a herd of pigs.

    It depends on context. I'll capitalize God to refer to a specific deity that a given theist calls God. I capitalize it because it is a proper name in that context. But when talking about gods in general, I use the lower case. You call your god God, therefore so will I when writing to you about Him. Some call their god Zeus. I will refer to Zeus or "your god" to them.

    You might have seen me say to a Christian that God, the alleged creator of the universe who does not lie, has been ruled out by science, but not all gods such as the deist god.

    You're making it tempting to stop capitalizing the word. I do it out of respect for believers and there is no such thing as blasphemy to an unbeliever.

    You'll have to take that up with the church.

    So, if I don't respect an idea myself that others might respect, I shouldn't capitalize it to express my contempt?

    You don't have a right to dictate to others how they use grammar, spelling or the name of your favorite deity. That much is for sure.

    Is it that one is finished with reasonable arguments favoring Hellenist Pauline Christianity and one wants to pressurize under vain pretexts, please? Right?
