Christians, is this what you believe?

Gnos·ti·cism

/ˈnästəˌsizəm/

Learn to pronounce

noun

a prominent heretical movement of the 2nd-century Christian Church, partly of pre-Christian origin. Gnostic doctrine taught that the world was created and ruled by a lesser divinity, the demiurge, and that Christ was an emissary of the remote supreme divine being, esoteric knowledge (gnosis) of whom enabled the redemption of the human spirit.

    No. We Christians believe this:

    I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth and of all things visible and invisible.

    And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-be-gotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all Ages.

    Light of Light, True God of True God, begotten, not created, of one essence with the Father, through Whom all things were made.

    Who for us men and for our salvation, He came down from heaven and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became Man.

    He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and He suffered and was buried.

    And He rose on the third day according to the Scriptures.

    He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father;

    And He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead; His kingdom shall have no end.

    And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Creator of Life, Who proceeds from the Father [and Son, Catholics], Who together with the Father and the Son, is worshipped and glorified; Who spoke through the Prophets.

    I believe in one, holy, catholic ["universal"] and apostolic Church.

    I confess one baptism for the remission of sins.

    I look for the resurrection of the dead.

    And the life of the age to come.
