: : What is the meaning of "in as much" and how is it used?

: It's one word. From Dictionary.com:
: inasmuch

: \In`as*much"\, adv. [In + as + much.] In like degree; in like manner; seeing that; considering that; since; -- followed by as. See In as much as, under In, prep.

: Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. --Matt. xxv. 45.

: Syn: Because; since; for; as. See Because.

It's one word, "inasmuch," not three words with spaces between.
