Do you need more of an “experience” to “experience” God?
Have some Christians been given a quarter, a half…three quarters of the Holy Spirit?
Are you missing out on some special and divine knowledge of God that He imparts to some and not others?
Answers…NO, NO AND NO!
The Apostle Paul addresses these questions in his Letter to the Church in Colossae.
These questions have plagued Christ’s church from the first century to this very day.
The heresy of Gnosticism is running rampant across social media and in small circles of those who claim Christ’s name.
Gnosticism…now that’s an odd word. Where did that false teaching derive it’s name?
It’s root in the Greek language is “gnosis” which means “knowledge”. Pretty simple, huh? This was a doctrine that took that word to new extremes and had some believers feeling “less knowledgable” than others. It taught that a special few had a secret knowledge…a deeper knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are studying the Bible inductively with us, you will immediately see a key word here…KNOWLEDGE! It added things to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
