Are there any Christains out there that can explain this to me? I'm honestly interested. Maybe I need to read the bible.
Hell no. The bible will just screw you up.
I am a Gnostic Christian and yes, Jesus is you, if you choose to follow that path to the real and only God you will ever know. Yourself.
Gnostic Christians are perpetual seekers after God. God here I define God as the best laws and rules to live life with.
We believe that those laws and rules, as Jesus said, are found in our minds/hearts.
I use the following to try to illustrate this notion. A bit of history and then a mindset and method to do what I promote.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR02cia ... =PLCBF574D
The thinking shown below is the Gnostic Christian’s goal as taught by Jesus but know that any belief can be internalized to activate your higher mind. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alRNbes ... r_embedded
This method and mind set is how you become I am and brethren to Jesus, in the esoteric sense.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdSVl_HOo8Y
When you can name your God, I am, and mean yourself, you will begin to know the only God you will ever find. Becoming a God is to become more fully human and a brethren to Jesus.
