The program says "A person and God," not "Human and God." Why is there this discrepancy? Also, "The person and God" should be fine. In fact, this is the old-fashioned phrase "Man and God," only "man" is not used in this universal manner any more.

Right now the default sentence that is shown to me is "Human and God", and it says that the exercise was last edited 2 years go O_o So I don't know how you say "person" there as the default translation.

Also, "The person and God" should be fine.

You are right, "the person" should be accepted. I am tired as well to discover a huge amount of exercises where this has been overlooked again and again... Added it.

"Man and God" is actually accepted.

"Man and God" is the conventional expression. "A/the person and God", "(A/the) human and God" all sound like third-rate poetry.
