There is no simple answer to that question. Each religion has a different view and people within the same religion can have different interpretations of those views. Some do not even believe in a God, while others believe that we are all a part of God. If we are a part of God, then God does not exist any more in a temple than in my thoughts. If there is NO God... you get the idea.

Some people need to be told what to believe, how to act, when to pray and how to live. These are often the people who can be manipulated by their religious leaders into doing terrible things in the name of their god. (Little "g") Others teach that their God is a God of love and that we are all a part of His Universe. Those people tend to believe that God is "everywhere", or as some would put it, "everywhere is a part of God".

That depends on what temple is being referred to. The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. In short, yes God dwells in temples.

Why did Paul the Apostle compare humans to temples of God?

When a person accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Savior (Born Again; Saved; Regenerated; come to the Lord, a Christian) the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in that person. The Holy Spirit is "God the Holy Spirit", the third person of the Trinity. I Corinthians 3:16-17, " Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are." I Corinthians 6:19-20, "Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's." The Christian's body is a temple because the Holy Spirit dwells with in them. We belong to God.

When you receive the holy spirit where does he specifically dwell in the body?

I can not answer this as to where in the body the Holy Spirit dwells, mainly because I do not know specifically where in my body my spirit dwells. I do believe the Holy Spirit dwells in my spirit (wherever that is). Man's spirit is that part of me that relates to worship and divine communion with God. It could be that empty space in each man that God wants to fill with Himself.
