This Week In DC History, Vol 12

"Pantheism versus Panentheism," Saturday, May 21, 2011

I remember when I discovered this new concept of Panentheism, and had a heart-racing moment when I tried to figure out if the thing I had been just starting to call myself, after all my hard work and study, was actually the wrong thing.

But it wasn't. No, I was on the right track, at least until I started talking to other theists about what I believe, and some started arguing that I was a deist instead.

They really should have a list of these things, and comprehensive descriptions and differences. I'd offer to do it, but I clearly (according to some) can't even classify my own beliefs right. But my beliefs ted to fall in the middle ground between deism and pantheism, and apparently I draw equal portions from both. Ah well, easier to just keep calling myself what I have been.
