I was raised a Christian and then left this faith and went to gnosis from when I was in my 20s. There has been a nagging question in the back of my mind because we do refer back to Christian Scriptures. How are we as gnostics to take this verse: “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever calleth upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:9-11. What is the gnostic interpretation of this verse?

These verses emphasize the mouth and the heart. The mouth relates to Da’ath, Gnosis, the Verb. The heart relates with bodhichitta, selfless and enlightened compassion.

The Greek term πιστεύω pisteuō is often translated as belief, yet has deeper implications, as evidenced by the following:

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. —Mark 13:20
Faith or true conviction in divinity requires all three brains in balance.

We are saved when we call upon the name of divinity in sexual alchemy, IAO, Iod-Chavah, Jehovah, or Yeshua, Iod Hei Shin Vav Hei in Hebrew.

We confess with our mouth towards our salvation through the Pratimoksha ritual.
