Untrue - it is available to all of humanity, but will require "humanity" to set aside as a follower and become one who goes out to learn.<quoted text>
By your response,"Those who have taken this belief and "ran with it", like me, have developed a much better understanding of the material world we exist in. This makes you a true gnostic....One who believes that some special kind of knowledge is salvation. This makes gnosticism exclusive in nature, thus not available to all humanity....
Christianity forbids this line of thinking.
Of course it is - because no religion has been proven as the "truth".<quoted text>You also go on to write," In my life, I try to separate that "darkness" you and Christianity think only exists outside your world." Obviously, that is an opinion....Something you think...Notice the irony in that statement....
There - some more honesty for ya.
<quoted text>A Christian may not always do what is right. But is convicted, and then can repent. In your system of gnosticism, it is simply "trying" to seperate out darkness....It then falls short because there is no sacrifice.
All of which are choices of Self.
Imagine that, huh?
This is where we will disagree.<quoted text>Christianity is the better choice in logical sense because Jesus is the Sacrifice.
Jesus showed us the way. Christianity diverts it - so that it requires participation in an organization, in order for the follower to be "saved".
Jesus never spoke of this concept.
