What is Deism? What Does It Mean?

Dear visitor, in this article, we will examine the concept of “Deism” from a Christian perspective. Our primary source is the Bible, the word of God.

What Do Deism and Deists Believe?
Deism is the view that believes in God but does not accept any religion. In Deism, there is a belief in God who started everything and set up the universe like a clock. But this God does not interfere with the present, it is impersonal. It also never created a religion through revelation or addressed humanity.

According to deism, God created the entire universe in the beginning and never interfered with creation again. Therefore, deists do not believe in miracles in the Bible, especially in the Bible, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the prophets through revelation. Therefore, they do not believe that God came in incarnation as a human being.

The main thing in deism is to reach and understand the existence of God and some of his attributes by observing nature. These are natural indications of the existence of only one God. But they do not accept that this glorious God may want to reach or appeal to humanity.

Logic and nature are shown as the source of deism. Deists are also against the concept of “faith”. ¨The fact that there is a designer is already in sight, I see it with my mind. That’s why I don’t have to believe in a God.” They have a view of God that they based on Voltaire.

There are many reasons for the emergence or strengthening of deism. It has been strengthened in response to the influence, especially because of the wrongs or persecutions of some theists (monotheistic beliefs – monotheistic religions; Islam, Judaism and Christianity) in the name of religion. We see examples of this in our society today.

Why Is Deism Wrong For Us?
Firstly;
The historical content of the Bible (Torah-Psalms-The Bible) and the Bible section of the Bible has been strictly preserved. how the Son of God, Jesus Christ, appeared by miracles; However, he was stopped on the cross, but was resurrected on the third day by the power of God, with first-hand testimonies, revealing their lives and maintaining its influence until today. The Bible is not a religion, a shari’ah, a bundle of teachings or rules written by a set of theologians (theologians) to sit in one place and form a religion.

Rather, it is a book that calls us to approach the living God with courage, to a love relationship in the present, with the spiritual God behind the scenes of the material world. Throughout the entire Bible, we read how God created and interacted with the universe, the world, and the first man, starting with the Creation chapter of the first book, the Torah. We see that we are separated from the Holy God because of our sins, and how God has been struggling to solve this problem of sin throughout the ages. God is faithful and kind, and to those who knock on his door, he will open the door in the most beautiful way.

Secondly;
Yes, nature tells us that there is a magnificent Designer behind the scenes. We see that this Creator has tremendous knowledge and power. At the same time, we understand that there is a purpose in everything, and that in a way, everything takes people as the basis and interlocutor. We also observe that he is very benevolent, generous and affectionate towards people. Is it not, then, quite natural for this Creator to speak to mankind through the prophets and the Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, who is the incarnated Word of God? Isn’t it normal for it to warn us against the reality of “death”, which is humanity’s last and greatest enemy? Isn’t it natural that we also expect this great Designer to show the way out?

Those who study the Bible closely will find that God truly loves humanity. He sent His Only Begotten Son in heaven so that we could be a family with Him, that we might call Him “Father, Daddy.” He sacrificed Him for our peace. Just as He is not indifferent to us, we should not be indifferent to Him.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son. So that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. God did not send his Son to judge the world, but to save the world through him.” (John 3:16-17)
