Current differences in different spiritualistic lifestyles stem from their theoretical dissimilar foundations. Knowing the foundations of theism and anthropology in one spiritualistic movement will help to decipher the lifestyle of that movement.
In his current article, the author has tried to refer to the ongoing researches on the beliefs of modern spiritualists in order to analyze their celebrated spiritualistic view on God and mankind in the light of pantheistic theism; mentioning the features of pantheism in modern spiritualism, he has also gone to propose some estimations about its impacts on the spiritualistic lifestyle. God in modern spiritualism, according to the findings of this article, is a none-exalted being, penetrating into everything, along with everything, and a troubleshooter who on emergency cases would appear all of a sudden due to the call from inside; and mankind is not his obedient servant, rather an active unit in the divinity and the intelligence guiding the universe. This particular pantheistic view on God and man has given rise to some signs such as living in the moment, sanctifying the inside call, dealing with God through self-love, altruism through self-love, considering everything so far as it concerns oneself, insisting on self-promotion and self-sufficiency in the lifestyle of modern spiritualists.
