Usually the term "God" is used to designate one religion or another.

It seems to me the particular God is less an issue that the belief in it.

I think Ludwig hit the nail on the head.
"Unresolved conflicts in debates about God usually result from absence of agreements on what the word God stands for."

The "word of God and what it stands for" is religion, or even cultural.
