I thought this little bit of information about Gnostic was interesting and also helps clairify in part what Gnosticism is 


  While the word Gnosis means knowledge, this knowledge is not simply a collection of facts and data. Gnosis is experiential knowledge of God . saying we are Gnostics doesn’t mean we believe we already possess full knowledge and understanding of God but identifying as a Gnostic is a statement of a spiritual goal  


It seems to me that ppl who say they are their own faith because they want to find their own answers about God, are Gnostic and just don’t know it

I never heard of the word before, but I guess I fall into that category. Thanks everlastingSpirit

We are all on our spiritual journeies through life. Good luck. Remember that, like climbing a mountain, the paths we take to find our goal might be different, but none are wrong. thanks for a good post

Beautifully said. That is the path I took and agreed with "they want to find their own answers about God" Its a life long pursuit.

Its good to learn something new everyday.
