You might want to be Christian to answer this one.

Why is the "W" in word capitalized a lot? Example:When talking about the "Word" of God.
This is an honest question that has peaked my curiosity please keep the debate/bashing to yourself on this one. If you do not know just move along there is no show here.

  • I am not a christian, but I was raised Christian and I believe that I was taught that words such as the Word of god is capitalized because it is from him and therefore more important... I am remembering from a while ago though so i may be wrong.

  • Christ, the Lamb, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life ..."
    These all refer to realities/ qualities of Christ.

    In the prologue to the gospel of St. John, it says "In the beginning, was the Word. And the Word was towards God, and the Word was divine. A divine being was the Word. He was in the beginning of time with God. Everything has come into being through Him, and without Him nothing has become. ..."

    Here, the Word is a name for the being of Christ Himself, so of course it is capitalized.

  • Any word that refers to God is capitalized. God, Jesus, Christ, Bible, Word (another way of saying Bible), Him, His, He (when it means God.) It is a show of respect.
