Pantheism

PANTHEISM, n. The doctrine that everything is God, in contradistinction to the doctrine that God is everything.

2008 Update:  The heresy that men choose their Gods as opposed to their scripture.

Everything is God--but I've always heard that the devil was in the details. I'm just confused.

My pinkie toe is God, and God is my pinkie toe.

Selah.

Or that dogs see their masters as Gods and their territory as heaven.

I think this is what had Finnian all worked up.

Hahaha to Actonbell, good point.

Pantheism: A doctrine of isms on a hot non-stick surface

Guess Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, and the Stylistics were right.

"You are everything
And everything is you
Oh, you are everything
And everything is you
'Cause you are everything
And everything is you"

Amoeba was on the right track, but anyone who speeks Spanish knows that PANTHEISM is the worship of bread.

Actonbell, it's simple, really: Everything is divine except what confounds, confuses or attracts us.

Jamie Dawn, is that from Psalm 152? Foorprints in the sand?

Icy, it all depends on the comfort of the cat.

Terry, God is there in everything
That takes its supper on the wing.

g, monasticism is the reward for free thinkers.

Amoeba, Holy, holy, holy, merciful and cast iron.

OE, I can only imagine teflon is central to the secret agent's life.

Cooper, that's a hymn?

Quilly, which religion is not the worship of bread?

William Wordsworth said...

And I have felt
A presence that disturbs me with the joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfused,
Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns,
And the round ocean and the living air,
And the blue sky, and in the mind of man;
A motion and a spirit, that impels
All thinking things, all ojbects of all thought,
And rolls through all things.
