Christians today who focus almost the entire effort of their lives on earning more money and acquiring more possessions become "practical" materialists in their activity, since their lives would be not much different if they did not believe in God at all.
The scriptural account of God's relation to his creation is also distinct from pantheism. The Greek word nav (from naq, G4246) means "all" or "every," and pantheism is the idea that everything, the whole universe, is God, or is part of God. This can be pictured as in figure 15.3.
