Noun[edit]

pandeism (uncountable)

  1. A coherent belief in a God who is both pantheistic and deistic, e.g. a God who designed the universe and then created it by becoming the universe, thus ceasing to act consciously with respect to the universe.
    • 1941, Charles Hartshorne, Man's Vision of God and the Logic of Theism, p. 348:
      Just as [absolute perfection in some respects, relative perfection in all others] is the whole positive content of perfection, so CW, or the conception of the Creator-and-the-Whole-of-what-he-has-created as constituting one life, the super-whole which in its everlasting essence is uncreated (and does not necessitate just the parts which the whole has) but in its de facto concreteness is created - this panentheistic doctrine contains all of deism and pandeism except their arbitrary negations.
    • 1967, Francis E. Peters, Greek Philosophical Terms: A Historical Lexicon, p. 169:
      What appeared here, at the center of the Pythagorean tradition in philosophy, is another view of psyche that seems to owe little or nothing to the pan-vitalism or pan-deism (see theion) that is the legacy of the Milesians.
    • 1997, Pastor Bob Burridge, Theology Proper - Lesson 4: The Decrees of God:
      The reality of secondary causes is what separates Christian theism from pandeism.
    • 2012, Donald L. Jackson, Religious Lies - Religious Truths: It's Time To Tell The Truth!, page 175:
      Charles Hartshorne introduced his process theology in the 1940s, in which he examined, and discarded pantheism, deism and pandeism in favor of panentheism, finding that such a doctrine contains all of deism and pandeism except their arbitrary negative aspects.
  2. (rare) Worship which admits or tolerates favorable aspects of all religions; omnitheism.
    • 1918, Yale University Sheffield Scientific School, Yale Sheffield Monthly, p. 463:
      We hear men prophecy that this war means the death of Christianity and an era of Pandeism or perhaps even the destruction of all which we call modern civilization and culture. We hear men predict that the ultimate result of the war will be a blessing to humanity.
    • 1991, J. Sidlow Baxter, Our Bible: The Most Critical Issue:
      If the Bible is only human lore, and not divine truth, then we have no real answer to those who say, 'Let's pick the best out of all religions and blend it all into Pan-Deism - one world religion with one god made out of many'.
    • 2005, Conrad Baker, The Three Powers Of Armageddon : An Exposition of Revelation 16:13-16:
      The Church of Rome uses the term "pandeism", to describe her current program of bringing under her wing the non-Christian religions of the world.
