Articles about Pantheism

Combining the Greek pan (all) and theos (god), pantheism is the religious belief that everything that exists is divine…that God is not a self-existent being, separate from His creation. Many religious traditions throughout history have embraced this concept, or combined pantheism with animism (the idea that all things have a spiritual component). This includes many folk religions, African and Native American religions, Hinduism, Confucianism, Taoism, and more modern religious movements like Paganism, Theosophy, Wicca, and other New Age groups.

The Greek word PAN means "all", and THEOS means "god". Simply put, Pantheism is the view that everything is God. Another way a pantheist might explain it is that nature and God are the same thing.
