In Response To: Re: Can a Muslim be a Panentheist? (Kian, Iran)

Brother Kian, the doctrine of pantheism must be distinguished from the panentheistic concept of God.

Panentheism is a middle ground between pantheism (a doctrine that God and the world constitute one reality/identism) and classical theism (God`s radical transcendence vis- -vis the contingent order).

In a literal sense, Panentheism means ("all things in God") - that is, the affirmation that the Divine is immanent within the creative worldly process, working within the evolving and dynamic contextual laws of nature, but is at the same time always more than the evolving world, i.e., there are no ontological entities external to God.

Panentheism is a faithful and philosophically sound term to describe God`s dynamic and ongoing relationship with the created order.
