Thomas Taylor Vol. Archived from the original on 3 March Retrieved 30 December Although in the Talmudic part of the Torah and especially in Kabalah G-d is referred to under the name ' Sh'chinah ' — which is feminine, this is only to accentuate the fact that all the creation and nature are actually in the receiving end in reference to the creator and as no part of the creation can perceive the creator outside of nature, it is adequate to refer to the divine presence in feminine form.
We refer to G-d using masculine terms simply for convenience's sake, because Hebrew has no neutral gender; G-d is no more male than a table is.

Philosophy of Religion. Archived from the original on 24 April Retrieved 16 July Johnston In its most abstract form, deism may not attempt to describe the characteristics of such a non-interventionist creator, or even that the universe is identical with God a variant known as pandeism. Pandeism combines the concepts of Deism and Pantheism with a god who creates the universe and then becomes it.
Fuller Thought: The Only Reality. Pandeism is another belief that states that God is identical to the universe, but God no longer exists in a way where He can be contacted; therefore, this theory can only be proven to exist by reason. Pandeism views the entire universe as being from God and now the universe is the entirety of God, but the universe at some point in time will fold back into one single being which is God Himself that created all. Pandeism raises the question as to why would God create a universe and then abandon it?
As this relates to pantheism, it raises the question of how did the universe come about what is its aim and purpose? Rogers Ultimate Truth, Book 1. Further review helps to accentuate the idea that natural law, existence, and the Universe which is the sum total of all that is, was, and shall be, is represented in the theological principle of an abstract 'god' rather than an individual, creative Divine Being or Beings of any kind. This is the key element which distinguishes them from Panentheists and Pandeists.
As such, although many religions may claim to hold Pantheistic elements, they are more commonly Panentheistic or Pandeistic in nature. I am the Truth. Toward a philosophy of Christianity.

The Grand Design. Bantam Books. In Donald M. Borchert ed. The Encyclopedia of Philosophy. In the most general use of the term, agnosticism is the view that we do not know whether there is a God or not.
In Edward Craig ed. Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy. In the popular sense, an agnostic is someone who neither believes nor disbelieves in God, whereas an atheist disbelieves in God. In the strict sense, however, agnosticism is the view that human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify either the belief that God exists or the belief that God does not exist.
In so far as one holds that our beliefs are rational only if they are sufficiently supported by human reason, the person who accepts the philosophical position of agnosticism will hold that neither the belief that God exists nor the belief that God does not exist is rational. OED Online, 3rd ed. Oxford University Press. Also: person of indeterminate ideology or conviction; an equivocator. Also: holding this belief. In extended use: not committed to or persuaded by a particular point of view; sceptical. Also: politically or ideologically unaligned; non-partisan, equivocal.
The doctrine or tenets of agnostics with regard to the existence of anything beyond and behind material phenomena or to knowledge of a First Cause or God. People frequently adopt an attitude of rejection toward a position for reasons other than that it is a false proposition. It is common among contemporary philosophers, and indeed it was not uncommon in earlier centuries, to reject positions on the ground that they are meaningless.
Sometimes, too, a theory is rejected on such grounds as that it is sterile or redundant or capricious, and there are many other considerations which in certain contexts are generally agreed to constitute good grounds for rejecting an assertion. So an atheist is someone who disbelieves in God, whereas a theist is someone who believes in God. Another meaning of 'atheism' is simply nonbelief in the existence of God, rather than positive belief in the nonexistence of God.

Archived from the original on 14 October Retrieved 6 October While the pious might wish to look to the gods to provide absolute moral guidance in the relativistic universe of the Sophistic Enlightenment, that certainty also was cast into doubt by philosophic and sophistic thinkers, who pointed out the absurdity and immorality of the conventional epic accounts of the gods.

At Liberty, we recognize the primary role of parents in the upbringing of their children, and we honor the opportunity to work together in the education of their most precious gifts. Loving families are the very foundation of civil society and the home is the most basic unit of self-government. At Liberty, we acknowledge that all education starts at home and is directed first and foremost from parents.
In the classrooms and through the school, parents are always welcome to visit and see the daily operations of the program.

Lastly, we want to foster an understanding of, appreciation for, and love of our great nation. Acknowledging that God is above all nations, empires, and kingdoms helps to orient ourselves rightly as Americans. We study, know, and appreciate the foundation of Western Civilization and our own country. We see that God is the source of our liberties and not government. While not perfect, we understand that the United States of America is and continues to be, "…the last best hope for a mankind plagued by tyranny and deprivation. Out of respect for our nation, we say the pledge of allegiance as a school.
We recognize our country as unique, as special, as a rare gem in the course of human history. We teach our students the difference between various forms of government, showing that government must be limited to ensure the conditions for human flourishing. We learn all the major forms of governmental and economic systems, showing the strengths, weaknesses, and pitfalls of each.
We study and appreciate the workings of our own constitution, its origins, and implementation. Students that have come through the government class at Liberty have read every word of the United States Constitution, something very few of their peers or adults have done. Furthermore, they understand the principles laid out therein and the duties needed to maintain it.
At the lower school level, our students learn first-hand experience in public service as they run for class president and vice-president. Students learn the skills of campaigning, stump speaking, service to constituents, and upholding campaign promises.
Upper school students too, display leadership and active citizenship by participating in student council, selflessly serving those around them for the betterment of all. At Liberty, we are working each day to build up the next generation of moral leaders. Leaders who are engaged in their communities, who are aware and active in the responsibilities and duties of citizenship. Who understand the responsibilities and duties of maintaining the proud title of American. Who uphold their God-given rights and protect them for others. Who love and serve not only their families, but their communities and their country.
Leaders who can successfully be passed the torch of freedom and protect it for their children and grandchildren. We do this out of love for God, our families, and our fellow man.
