LET US CONTEMPLATE THE TWO CROSSES OF THE GNOSTIC CHRIST.

In the ACTS OF JOHN we read that John had fled from the cross of Golgotha to the mount of Olives. The Lord appeared to John in a cave and said to him: "I did put in thy heart to ascend this mount that thou mightest hear what a disciple must learn from God. The Lord filled the cave with light and showed to me a cross of light set up. I saw the Lord himself above the cross and he said with a divine voice: "To the multitude below I am crucified....To thee now I speak... "This cross of light is sometimes called the Word for your sakes, sometimes Mind, Jesus, Christ, Door, Way, Bread, Seed, Resurrection, Son, Father, Spirit, Life, Truth, Faith, Grace. This, then is the cross which fixed all things apart.. .This is not the cross of wood which you wilt see when thou hast descended..
