    God

    Hi guys,

    Please check. God is in every person. So can we say that God says "There is no person that I am not"(Means I am each and every person in this world).

    Re: God

    Ideally, you need to put "God is in every person" in quotes. I assume that you either took that quote from somewhere or you made it up yourself. You have given it as if it is a statement of fact, which is not appropriate.

    I don't know what the religious view is of putting words into the mouths of deities but I would think that unless you found the words "There is no person that I am not" in the Bible, then I doubt it's viewed as appropriate to come up with things that "God can/could say".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: God

    If we assume that God is in every person, then God could say 'There is no person that I am not in'.

    Re: God

    Would it be wrong, if we omitted "in" from the end of the sentence.(I think "from the end" is correct usage".

    There are religious texts other than the Christian bible.

    No, it wouldn't be wrong, but the meaning would change.

    I know that, but I was under the impression that the Bible was the only one in which the deity was referred to as "God" in the English language.

    Yes, it would certainly be wrong. Rover had just told you that. If you have on good authority that God is in every person (usually thought to be in region of the heart), you can infer that there is no person that God is not in." You cannot infer that there is no person that God is not, although you could fabricate this claim yourself.

    Re: God

    Jesus certainly taught us to treat every person as if that person was Him. ("Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto Me.")

    But I agree with the others that saying God is "in" everyone is not the same as saying that God "is" everyone.
