Pantheism: Summary
(Pantheism Part VI)
Bible study on Pantheism.

In this series we've explored Pantheism, the belief that nature and the universe are divine, which is at the root of New Age and Neopagan religions.

Pantheistic doctrines and ideas are infiltrating government, denominations, and our culture at large, resulting in swift changes that affect us every day.

In this article, I want to summarize the things we've learned in this series, focusing on mainline Pantheistic beliefs in contrast to God's word.

Pantheism: Nature and the Universe are Divine
Paul Harrison, President of the World Pantheism Movement, clearly states the Pantheistic view that the universe and nature alone are worthy of reverence (

Pantheists believe:

  • The universe and nature should be regarded with the deepest reverence.
  • Nature is our mother, our home, our security, our peace, our past and our future.
  • The universe creates us, preserves us, and destroys us.

In the Bible we learn from Jehovah that ascribing divine attributes to nature, thus worshiping nature, is a sin, demonstrated by the homosexual lifestyle condoned by Pantheists (Deut. 4:15-19; Rom. 1:22-32).

Pantheism: Religion Based on Emotion
Pantheists don't believe in supernatural beings. They believe the universe and nature are divine. So as a result, they don't believe in revelation from God.

Rather than revelation from a supernatural being, Pantheists base their faith on perceived common sense, and emotions.

  • Scientific Pantheism "is a religion that requires no faith other than common sense, no revelation other than open eyes and a mind open to evidence" (
  • "When we say we revere the universe we are not talking about a supernatural being, because we do not believe in supernatural beings. We are talking about the way our senses and our emotions force us to respond to the overwhelming mystery and power that surrounds us" (

Paul, writing to the Romans, reveals that Pantheism is not a religion of common sense, but a religion of emotion over knowledge (Rom. 1:20-21; 10:1-3).

Perhaps more than anything, humanistic common sense and emotions have led to syncretism among religions today, uniting denominations with world religions through many efforts, especially from the religious Greens.

Pantheism: Worship and Immortality
Pantheists worship through participation with nature, seeking to be unified with nature and live in harmony with the universe. They worship nature, rejoicing in their existence while seeking to participate more deeply through philosophic perception of a divine unity. Their worship may include anything deemed helpful, including prayer, meditation, contemplation, and visualization.

As a result, Pantheists believe they have impersonal immortality through participation with nature. They strive to elevate to an immortal level of life, so their impact on the universe is everlasting as the resulting goodness of their deeds continues for eternity, though their spirits cease to exist when their bodies die. This immortality comes by being one with nature, thereby participating with the divine unity and nature, to bring about what is humanly perceived as good.

In contrast, Christians worship Jehovah in spirit and truth, participating with Him, having union with Him, and living in harmony with Him. As a result, we have personal immortality with God in heaven.

Pantheism: Nature is the Bible, No Need for Scriptures or a Mediator
To Pantheists, nature and the universe compel the deepest human reverence and wonder. They believe their senses and science are the best means of knowing the universe, upon which is they base their aesthetic and religious feelings.

Pantheists believe that everyone has access to the ultimate reality, which is the universe and nature. Hence, they don't believe in Scripture, or mediation by our high priest Jesus Christ.

In truth, Jehovah created nature and the universe to prompt us to seek Him and His word, not to reveal the ultimate reality of man through science (Acts 17:24-28).

Nature doesn't reveal all spiritual things to man. Rather, Jehovah reveals all things pertaining to life and godliness, through His word, instructing us that the ultimate reality is in Christ (2 Tim. 3:16-19; 2 Pet. 1:3-5; Col. 2:8-14).

Pantheism: The New World Religion
Pantheism is an old religion, experiencing a renaissance in modern New Age and Neopagan religions.

These religions have infiltrated our culture, making inroads into world religions and governments.

To promote their doctrines, religious Greens have infiltrated denominations, created green Bibles, and published green Bible class curriculum, to influence church leaders and promote green doctrines.

For example, ReNew: The Green VBS is a green Bible curriculum created to empower kids to "change the world" whereby religious Greens can "take over the world."

Beware of Pantheism!

As cultural and religious thought change to align with Pantheist doctrines, pressure will be put on the Lord's people to embrace Pantheism, the new world religion!

Our responsibility is to fight these false doctrines with the sword of the Spirit, God's word, and prepare future generations to faithfully serve Jehovah.
