A pantheist interpretation of the Gospel

Many people say that there is no need to learn apologetics. One has to simply share the gospel or simply give the bible. Let us not forget people’s interpretation depends according to one's worldview. When a pantheist is reading the gospel and comes across the Lord’s Prayer
"This, then, is how you should pray:
   “‘Our Father in heaven,    hallowed be your name,
According to pantheist Jesus is teaching here Dwaitism or dwaita philosophy   (Dualism”) 
When he comes to the verses "I am in father and father is in me"
According to pantheist Jesus is teaching here Vishisthadvaita (qualified non-dualism)
When he reads the verse "I and the father are one"
According to pantheist Jesus is teaching here Advaita (Non-dualism)

You see how one’s worldview determines one’s interpretation of the claims of Christ. Simply telling Gospel will not suffice in such context. One has to show the inconsistency of pantheistic worldview and establish and show the reasonability and plausibility of Theistic worldview.  Only in the theistic context one can rightly interpret the claims of Jesus. This can be done by using apologetics. Bible commands us to do that (1 Peter 3:15-16). Every Christian is commanded to learn and practice apologetics.
