    Dear Dor

    Yes i agree, I just found this.

    "The Book of John and Revelation are Gnostic/Essene in origin. Paul was very revered by them but I wouldn't call Paul an outright Gnostic. His spiritual experience on the road to Damascus in Acts is typical Gnosticism or spiritual enlightenment.

    Gnostism predates Christianity and is not a rip-off of Christianity as the church claims. It is written that without the influence of Gnosticism, there would be no Christianity, in particular, Protestantism.

    This thread is about salvation and not gnostism, so yes it does come back to our individual understanding and experience of GOD. How Jesus as shown us individually the way to salvation, and of course that can be different for each and every individual because everyone of us is unique and have had different life experience that we have wished to be saved from.

    So Jesus is the way and the life.

    being love

    Jesus said to him, "I am the way, THE TRUTH, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6


    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
