This is the doctrine of one God, eternal, self-sufficient, omniscient, omnipotent, pervading all creation, Creator, Preserver, Protector, and Benefactor of all things and of man. It is a denial of atheism — the doctrine that there is no God, of polytheism — the doctrine that there are many gods, of deism — the doctrine that there is no God of supernatural revelation, of pantheism — that all nature is God and that God is all nature. It is in this one God that Masons confess their faith and trust, and upon recognition of the revelations of this one God Masonry is founded.
