Gnostic Gospels-See GNOSIS or NAG HAMMADI GOSPELS. The reader might also note that the Gospel of John in the BIBLE is a Gnostic Gospel.

God (Christianity)-An immortal, OMNIPOTENT being, who is thought to have created everything and everyone in the universe. Most western religions have personified him to be human-like and have human characteristics. How he (or she) is present and how GOD is perceived has been a dilemma for eons. Many people who believe in God take their belief as fact, even though concrete evidence is lacking, and great lengths are taken with biblical teachings and exploring ancient archeological sites to prove the references in the BIBLE, therefore strengthening their belief. Their BELIEF is usually substantiated by what many consider is convincing evidence in the BIBLE and its teachings. Usually God is seen as some unimaginable person like us, who is "out there" and keeps track of us and what we do and whether or not we follow the rules (with consequential reward or punishment). Usually seen as a father figure. See also other gods under GODS.
