The following is a quote from A. A. Hodge's Outlines of Theology: "Besides pure pantheism there has existed an infinite variety of impure forms of virtual pantheism. This is true of all systems that affirm the impersonality of the infinite and absolute, and which resolve all the divine attributes into modes of causality. The same is true of all systems which represent providential preservation as a continual creation, deny the real efficiency of second causes, and make God the only agent in the universe, e. g., Edwards on "Original Sin," pt. 4, ch. 3..."Any thoughts on why Hodge might consider Edwards a "virtual pantheist"? I haven't read "Original Sin", the work in question.
