... ‘All is in God’, the doctrine that all creation is embraced by God. Panentheism is quite distinct from pantheism ( see SPINOZA ) or monism. According to pantheistic or monistic theory, God is the name given to the universe as a whole. The ‘all’ is identified with God, so that it is meaningless to speak of God as distinct from the universe. Pantheism means that all is God and monism (the theory of ‘oneness’) that God is a synonym for the ‘stuff’ or ‘substance’ of the universe. In panentheism, on the other hand, the ‘all’ is in God. The Being of God...

...panentheism (Gk. πα̑ν ‎, ‘everything’; ἐν ‎, ‘in’; θεός ‎, ‘God’) . The belief that the Being of God includes and penetrates the whole universe, so that every part of it exists in Him, but (as against pantheism , q.v.) that His Being is more than, and is not exhausted by, the universe. The word was coined by K. C. F. Krause ( 1781–1832 ) for his own system. The concept has gained some popularity in recent years, esp. among the exponents of Process Theology and in the writings of John Macquarrie , who, in his Gifford Lectures for 1983–4 (pub. as...

..., panentheism . . A family of views dealing with the relation between God and the world. In contrast to theism 's stress on the total transcendence of God, both terms reflect an emphasis on divine immanence . In pantheistic views, God and the world are essentially identical; the divine is totally immanent. In panentheistic views, the world exists in God (all reality is part of the being of God), but God is not exhausted by the world; the divine is both transcendent and immanent. Such views are often closely related to mysticism...

...of becoming, rather than as the transcendent source of being. Process theology owes much to the metaphysical thought of A. N. Whitehead ( 1861–1947 ) which culminated in Process and Reality ( 1929 ). Everything is ‘in God’, but God is more than the sum of the parts (panentheism; see PANTHEISM )—just as I am my body, and yet I am more than the sum of the parts of my body. God is not apart from the universe, but is the comprehension of the whole process. This entire cosmic process is God, and God works like an artist attempting to win order and beauty...

...referred to above, but he was far removed from any attitude of broad tolerance towards views which diverged from the traditional path. Although the Gaon took little part in communal affairs, he led the opposition to the Hasidic movement, convinced that the Hasidic doctrine of panentheism , that everything is in God, is a heretical doctrine. It is not going too far to say that the Gaon persecuted the Hasidim, placing their leaders under the ban ( see HEREM...

...). Mozoomdar understood the unity and ultimate end of humankind, as well as interpreted Christ and Christianity in the framework of the Spirit. The ‘Spirit of God’ animates everything and everything participates in the Spirit. This schema is called ‘revised pantheism’ or ‘pan-en-theism’. Mozoomdar was critical of Christo-dominant Christianity since it sidelined the Holy Spirit in its life and experience. Mozoomdar considered Jesus Christ as the man in whom divinity descended and was revealed. This experience of divinity was nothing but his realization of the...

...spiritual gifts and revelatory connectedness with creation. Creation Spirituality is explicitly panentheistic, arguing that God is neither removed from the created world nor equated with the created world, but rather dwells within and penetrates all aspects of the world. This panentheism justifies a view of creation as sacred and humans as capable of experiencing God firsthand. Creation, including humanity, is seen as good and blessed. Fox explicitly dismisses original sin and criticizes traditional Christianity’s emphasis on human sin and human salvation, to...

...which he nevertheless sought to overcome (particularly the Leibnizian doctrine of monadology and naturalism). Ultimately, he was a representative of the Enlightenment. During his later years he became increasingly independent in his thought. He adopted a Christian Spinozism or panentheism supplemented by Christology that was indebted to Herder . The salvation-historical, gnostic system of the ‘Kingdom of God and Christ’, which culminates in the ‘universal restoration’ (Gr. ‘Apokatastasis panton’, Acts 3:21) forms the centre of Hahn's thinking. It is...
