Another of his book, The Treatise of Political Theology deals extensively with the law of Moses and the role that religion plays in the formation and perpetuation of states.   Yes, in my opinion, Spinoza’s idea of Substance, and Lao Tzu’s idea of the Tao, and Plotinus’ idea of The One — are all the same. They are all about God. Spinoza was explicit about it. He openly said the Substance is God. Lao Tzu regarded the Tao.
