What is the comparison between Christianity and gnostic Christianity?
Actually, the writings of Rabbi Shaul (paul) reveal a gnostic interpretation and influence in Christianity. Gnosticism regards the salvation of humankind as a problem of "knowledge" of one's true self. Ignorance is the human condition, gnostics claim, but paul uses this in his interpretation of the divine Jesus as Christ and Lord. The Gentiles (Nations) need to "know" about Jesus as Christ and that there "ignorance" of the judaic law and their god YHVH is keeping them away from salvation or justification. Paul is not extreme in gnosticism, but his writings and thought do reveal an influence and especially of Greek thought and philosophy, since the new testement is in the Greek language, not English.
Gnostic Christianity looks at Jesus as a way shower, a teacher who is an aeon who came and comes to show us the way-to help us become a race of Christs.
any division of Christianity is sinful like the roman catholics
