Like Einstein once said
“I believe in Spinoza’s God, Who reveals Himself
in the orderly harmony of what exists”(

According to deGrasse Tyson in the “Cosmos”, a National Geographics doc, Spinoza (min 29) said: “God is best apprehended in the study of the laws of Nature.”
Einsein probably read Spinoza’s Ethics and
maybe also Paul’s sentence in ROMANS 1:20:
“Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things he has made. ”
Spinoza inspired many and also me for some time, to believe in a pantheistic view of the Universe.
Noone knows God.
So everyone should be free to get its own view of God. What important is, is to follow Jesus’ commandments, to love each other, even your enemies.
About loving God
How could you say that you love God if you do not love and care about God’s creation?
I obviously, therefore do not agree with this sentence:
“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.” 1 John 2:15
