    Default create as

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-God created me a kind person.
    2-God created me as a kind person.
    3-God made me as a kind person.

    Only the first one is truly correct grammatically.

    Thanks.
    Another question here if I may.
    Can one say:
    1-God created us mortals.
    2-God created us kind people.

    Yes

    But can you tell me what you mean with the sentences?

    Thanks a lot Anglika.

    The first sentence is supposed to mean that we were created mortals. And the second one is supposed to mean that we were created kind.
    I just wanted to see if that structure worked in the plural as well as in the singular.

    1. is ambiguous.
    God created me a beautiful woman.
    I'm male, but I have no objection to this if it means God created (for) me a beautiful woman.

    Good point Raymott,

    But maybe you are a bit over-optimistic!

    I know, but this God is meant to be a powerful dude. Perhaps He thinks I don't deserve it though.
