Q: What does What's the difference between "believe in god" and "believe god"? mean?

Yeah, you're right about your suspicion. XD

"I believe in God" can mean many things, not just "existence" or "can help me", depends on the context.

It could also mean you believe He is powerful to save, or whatever attribute, character, etc.

"I believe in God"=
"I believe in God's power to save."
"I believe in God's existence."
"I believe in God's promise."
"I believe in God's faithfulness."

It depends on what you're talking about/is happening.

"Believing in someone" really means you "put/have faith in them", that's the term!

Hope this gives you a much clearer picture.

Q: Please show me example sentences with what is the difference count and calculate.
A: count - to determine the number of something. It means adding up, or tally up.

e.g. She is counting the stars in the sky.
Note that it sounds strange to say that she is calculating the number of stars in the sky... unless she is a scientist, then that actually makes sense! So calculate in general implies more effort is required as compared to counting.

calculate - to figure out a value of something that involves more than simple counting.

e.g. Google Map can calculate the shortest route from your current location to your destination.

Hope that helps!

What is the difference between “Also” or “Too” ?
Because Sometimes the people said “ I have that one also “ 🤔 and not too
A: “Also” y “Too” significan “también” en español pero tienen distintos usos.

Ambos quieren expresar “algo más”
Pero “Also” es para añadir algo. Por ejemplo, “I have a car and I also have a bike”
O “I also do that too” también puede ser expresado

“Too” puede ser usado cuando hacer algo también o cuando quieres expresar que algo es mucho. Ejemplo, “I like my car way too much”

Cuando una persona dice algo tipo “I have one also” pienso que está hablando incorrectamente a menos de que haya dicho eso añadiendo a algo que había dicho anteriormente, pero aún así es normal entre los nativos de un idioma ya que ellos usualmente se entienden.

Siempre se usan esas expresiones entre amigos y de manera casual, pero no para algo más formal.
