I will take your question at face value. Boh words begin with capital letters because they are both proper nouns. A noun is a person, place, thing, or concept. Am I missing something here?
Because 'God loves me, and I love God! And that makes God important to me and because I am important to God.
All proper nouns are capitalized and God and I are proper nouns? Is this a trick question?
Because God is a name, and I stands in for a name (yours). All names are capitalized. Capitalization was developed as a way to make texts easier to read. The same is true of punctuation and paragraphing. Almost all developments like that evolve in order to make text easier to read. Bible text was not written in chapters and verses, but divided into chapters in the 13th century, and into bite-sized verses in the 16th century.
I believe that it is because, we believe that there is only one single God and also this apply to 'I' because there is only one 'I' (me) and I can only be me the person that is talking or writing just now.
Unless there is some theological meaning you are looking for the answer is simple.
The best explanation I have found for I being capitalized is because a single letter is generally not accepted as a word. Capitalizing it helps it stand out and appear important. It may also have something to do with the fact that we like to feel important and writing "i" doesn't feel as significant.
God is capitalized because it's a title/name depending on who you ask.
If you are looking for something theological, I'll leave that for others to ponder.
Oh, and I should have included, a "Proper Noun" is a name or title (God, Cole, Captain). Those are capitalized.
A Pro-noun is a replacement for a name (such as "I", he, she), they are typically not capitalized. Which makes "I" strange.
I stand corrected. "I" is not a proper noun, but a pronoun. I was not thinking. Your second paragraph seems to make sense.
I always wondered why you and we weren't capitalized, since "I" is.
My ego wants importance. So "i" becomes "I". My ego accepts only God as an equal or above me! So God too gets respect through capital "G".
