Abstract [en]

This paper investigates some consequences of a  mathematical understanding of infinity and connectedness for a panentheistic conception of God.  Given the existence of God and an understanding of the  world in terms of the finite, countable infinity, or uncountable infinity I argue, (a) that a panentheistic conception of God is  supported  given a  mathematical understanding of the infinite, (b) that by applying the notion of uncountable infinity and the mathematical concept of connectedness a panentheistic God can be seen as unifying irrespective of whether the world includes a finite, countably infinite or an uncountably infinite number of entities.
