Soteriology is the doctrine of Salvation that originated with the ancient Gnostics and has been modified to fit into Christian dogma. And the meaning behind the two viewpoints couldn’t show a greater contrast. We at the Gnostic Church of L.V.X. do not accept doctrines of fear, as we reject any consoler god. Know thyself!–said Hermes Trismegistus. And in the Gospel of Thomas it is said that one who knows himself will simultaneously come to the knowledge of the breadth and depth of the ALL.
