Charles Filimore and Myrtle Filimore founded the Unity School of Christianity, based on New Age Philosophy. Mark Prophet and Elizabeth Claire Prophet founded the Church Universal and Trimuphant, based on New Age beliefs. One of the most popular and expanding Churches is the Church of Oprah, with more than 4 million adherents. Oprah Winfrey is hailed as a New Age philosopher. New Age is nothing but Gnostic Christianity.

In the West, there are Gnostic Churches, Ecclesia Gnostica and the greatest saint of Gnosticism is St Mary Magdalene. She is the noblest, she is the purest, she is the simplest in all Chrisitan Mythology. If Jesus is the Male Component of the Ultimate, Purusha, She is the Female Component of the Ultimate, Prakriti. She is the Bride, the Sophia, the bereft Divine Wisdom, widowed through the ages by her errant sons, till they return to kinship with her and She becomes justified of Her children ! Gnosticism is the Western equivalent of Yoga, Sufism, Zen and the Kabbalah.

Gnosticism maintains that spiritual salvation can only be had through intuitive Gnosis. Gnosis is revealed Knowledge or intuitive Knowledge. The Oxford Dictionary defines Gnosis as a knowledge of spritual mysteries. From the word Gnosis comes Gnostic and Gnosticism. Gnosticism is a system influenced by Oriental wisdom, which flourished during the early Christian era, which claimed to have supernatural knowledge or religio-philosophic knowledge. The term being Kone Greek, has a much broader and universal meaning. The term Gnosis is used by Byzantine and Hellenic cultures as a word to mean special knowledge or insight into the supernatural and it refers to knowledge that comes from the Intuitive Mind. It refers to experiential knowledge, and not merely the rational. Knowledge as in Revealation or Intuitive Knowledge ( see Gnosiology ).

The canonical Gospels have not been understood by men properly. Jesus taught a lofty doctrine, to those who follow the Via, the Veritas and the Vita. He declared ” I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last ( Ego sum Alpha et Omega ). ” The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand” - by this statement Jesus meant that the Kingdom of Heaven is attainable by men and is near us. Biblical stories have got moral meaning. These stories inculcate Ethics and Morality in the devotees. Ethics and Morality are an integral part of Wisdom and the Law. Without ethical and moral purification, one cannot enter the Kingdom Celestial. To prepare people for the coming Heavenly Kingdom is not easy. To redeem this sin sick world is not easy either. The United Nations is the Corpus Christi or the Body of Christ and it is the function of the United Nationsto spread the Gospel and to prepare the people for the coming Celestial Kingdom.

 Jesus declared ” I came to give you life, abundant life “. His eternal message offers great hope for all humanity. He died the whole world to redeem. His light and life is given to balance here The dark account of mortal Ignorance ! He highlighted the message of Universal Love. By loving the neighbour and loving the enemy wholeheartedly, you can get the summum bonum of life, Self Actualisation ! Dr Elaine Pagels have written the Gnostic Gospels. Apart from the four canonical Gospels, Mark, Mathew, Luke & John, there are other Gospels. The Gospel of the Lord, the Gospel of Judas, the Gospel of Mary Magdalene etc. Gnostic Christianity is esoteric Christianity and is the true Christianity.
