The doctrine of salvation by definition, based on the etymology of the word (gnosis "knowledge", gnostikos, "good at knowing"), is correct as far as it goes, but it gives only one, though perhaps the predominant, characteristic of Gnostic systems of cism is peculier in that it places the salvation of the soul merely in the possession of a quasi-intuitive knowledge. The gnostic way to be a Christian is to be on a journey with Christ, finding oneness with God through what the Gnostics called "gnosis" -- pronounced "nos-ses," or for their followers, as "naws-tics." As you may have learned in the other pages, gnosis is a way to be with God, to let Christ bring comfort, love, and wholeness to oneself and others.

The Gnostic gospels have shed light on a phenomenon buried beneath the surface of the Western mind. We can now clearly discern later Gnostic offshoots including recent developments such as the current spiritual and New Age movements. Though driven underground, Gnosticism refused to die because it tapped deep into the human psyche and soul. The Gnostic Teachings website is a free public service, available to anyone, worldwide, without restrictions, memberships, dues, etc. It is made possible by Glorian Publishing, a (c)3 non-profit organization formed in the United States.
