answerGnostic is a person or persons who believe in many possibilities, They believe in God, Jesus, Mary, and yes even mother God! They study all religions and go by their own understanding of what seems right to them. They believe in after life, spirits, Angels and fallen angels. They do not believe in Devils.

The goal of Gnostic spirituality is Gnosis, or "Knowledge of Truth." Gnostics, mean "Knowers," because in the various languages used by different religions, individuals who have realized "Gnosis" or achieved "enlightenment"---yes, believe in many other spiritual possibilities.

Gnostics interpret the stories and teachings of their spiritual tradition as signposts pointing beyond words altogether to the mystical experience of the ineffable Mystery.

Why do narcissists pretend to be someone they're not?

A narcissist, by definition, is someone with excessive self-love. It's not so much that they pretend to be someone they're not, but more often it is that they cannot control the high regard in which they place themselves. They see themselves as a level higher than the rest, and when someone does not meet criteria they see in themselves, they often become haughty and that "someone they're not" that you are talking about.
