I don't think the rules of correct English is based on your consent Shocking

As stated before, capitalizing "God" is the same as capitalizing "Mom" or "Dad" when you use that to replace their name.

That is assuming you are talking about THE god.

To me, god is simply a noun, pertaining to any god.

That's why I made sure to say "Christian God".

Shocking. I know.
Most of mine are drunk-typing, (too fast), but I still don't remember "it's" and "its".
Gives me fits.
