If the Christian god, God, is omnipresent does that imply that he is everyone?
If the Christian god, God, is omnipresent does that imply that everyone is his alter ego?
No. God is God and humans are humans. Omnipresent means he is everywhere all at the same time, not that he is everyone. Even the passages which state that God dwells within us does not mean he is us and we are him. It simply means he can be in our minds and guide us. Notice the word "guide". He never forces us to do anything.
Proverbs 16To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.2 All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord.3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.4 The Lord works out everything to its proper end even the wicked for a day of disaster5 The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this:They will not go unpunished.6 Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided.7 When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.8 Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.9 In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.10 The lips of a king speak as an oracle, and his mouth does not betray justice.11 Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making.12 Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness.13 Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value the one who speaks what is right.14 A king’s wrath is a messenger of death, but the wise will appease it.15 When a king’s face brightens, it means life; his favor is like a rain cloud in spring.16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!17 The highway of the upright avoids evil; those who guard their ways preserve their lives.18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.19 Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.20 Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.21 The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction.22 Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools.23 The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction.24 Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.25 There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.26 The appetite of laborers works for them; their hunger drives them on.
27 A scoundrel plots evil, and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.28 A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends29 A violent person entices their neighbor and leads them down a path that is not good.30 Whoever winks their eye is plotting perversity; whoever purses the lips is bent on evil

As a Christian who believes Jesus is the one God, how do you interpret John 14:16, 28 and 15:10,21?

In other words, does the existence of "God" depend upon the mind of Man to support that existence?

After all the claims made by biblical religionists that the biblical god is all of the above, none of this god's actions seems to fit these lofty roles. For example, the biblical god has to be worshiped, which hardly...
