I am reposting my question because I may not have submitted it correctly. I have been a strict christian for 15 years. I am new to this gnostic teaching. I actually am in awe of what I have been learning. My husband also has been listening to lectures with me and is very interested. I have only been listening for month now. Though what I have been learning is resonating with me, I still feel a little hesitant, fearful and confused, hoping that I am making the right decision in delving into this. I could never speak of this to our friends and family - it would be branded as witchcraft. It is sad that I would have to keep my new beliefs secret. Though most of what I am hearing feels right with me, some things I hear make me a little nervous, and that's where I a still confused. But I will say the more I listen, the more comfortable I become. How do I reconcile these teachings with the traditional church? I just wish I could speak with someone to help me through some of these issues

Most students go through this process, since what we are learning challenges what we were told formerly. To move towards the divinity that is waiting for you, spend more time in prayer and reflection, and meditate on what you are learning. Reflect on your own experience and how it relates to what you are learning. Analyze what you have been told and measure if you know it is true or not. In this way, you test everything, and you arrive at conclusions based on your own experience, developed in the sanctity of your inner temple, in your heart. This is how we develop real Faith: knowledge from our own experience. Faith dissolves belief away. Faith is real. Belief is an illusion.

It is also important to note that all religions have an important function, which is to prepare us for the deeper teachings. The public, popular religions are like pre-school or kindergarten, in which we are prepared for the more serious work. It would be absurd for a college student to expect their studies would be conducted as they were in pre-school, yet many students have that attitude about spirituality and religion. Gnosis is university level knowledge, so it is not easy, nor is it sugar-coated like pre-school was. :)

Finally, Gnosis is the heart knowledge of the genuine church, which is not in the physical world. You can learn more about the true church here:
