Are any of you familiar with Gnosticism? It is considered by some to be the earliest and more accurate form of Christianity. I think there are parallels between its teachings and Panendeism.

You can read an overview of Gnostic philosophy here: http://www.gnosis.org/gnintro.htm

It actually predates Christianity. I like many aspects of Gnosticism. In many ways it's closer to eastern religion than western. I like the emphasis on introspection.

There were a number of Gnostic gospels the didn't make the final cut when they were deciding what to put in the Bible. I wonder what the world would be like now if they had made it.
