Immanence


#1

In a book I’m reading about veneration of the Saints it starts talking about why pantheism is wrong, but there is a paragraph that I don’t get. I’m hoping someone can help me. Here it is:

The pantheist is right in asserting the immanence of the creative act and, so far, the identity of the creature with the Creator, but he is wrong in supposing the Creator directly immanent as being, instead of being immanent only through the medium of His creative act

I think that it is trying to say that God created us, God is with us, but God is not us or the world.
