Definitions for: Deism


[n] the form of theological rationalism that believes in God on the basis of reason without reference to revelation



Webster (1913) Definition: De"ism (d[=e]"[i^]z'm), n. [L. deus god: cf. F.
d['e]isme. See Deity.]
The doctrine or creed of a deist; the belief or system of
those who acknowledge the existence of one God, but deny
revelation.

Note: Deism is the belief in natural religion only, or those
truths, in doctrine and practice, which man is to
discover by the light of reason, independent of any
revelation from God. Hence, deism implies infidelity,
or a disbelief in the divine origin of the Scriptures.
