From what I can gather (as a Christian), it's a belief that writing "God" is somehow using the name "in vain", which isn't the case at all.
Using His name in vain would be using it as an exclamation, for example, or as a curse, perhaps. We aren't told we can't use His name at all; only
not to use it "in vain". Some are overly cautious about this, and leave out a letter as a result. I guess, for them, it's a way to avoid a sin
they think they would otherwise commit, so I won't tell them to do otherwise. I don't personally see that as something we need to do, however.
