Does your Bible teach a god straight out of shintoism? If you’re using a modern version then of course!
First of all, what is shintoism?
“Shinto gods” are called kami. They are sacred spirits which take the form of things and concepts important to life, such as wind, rain, mountains, trees, rivers and fertility. Humans become kami after they die and are revered by their families as ancestral kami. The kami of extraordinary people are even enshrined at some shrines. The Sun Goddess Amaterasu is considered Shinto’s most important kami.http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2056.html
What about pantheism?
Pantheism, the belief that the universe is “god” or “god” is the universe, and all therein.
What do these two beliefs have to do with modern Bible versions?
They preach it.
one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (NIV)
one Father of us all, who is the one over all, the one working through all and the one living in all. (J.B. Phillips new testament)
one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all. (HCSB)
There is one God and Father of everything. ·He rules everything and is everywhere and is in everything [L …who is over all and through all and in all]. (EXB)
one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all. (ASV)
there is one God and Father of all people, who is Lord of all, works through all, and is in all. (GNT)
One G-d and Avi khol (Father of all), who is over all and through all and in all. (OJB)
one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all. (NRSV)
By teaching God is in all, they effectively have allowed a pantheistic, and shinto concept to sneak into Scripture.
What does the King James Bible teach?
One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Ephesians 4:6)
There is no shinto concept here. God is in all believers (John 7:38, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20) not in “all”.
