We'll now explore a selection from the Gospel of Truth, a gnostic scripture, part of the Nag Hammadi Library. The author of the book is unknown, whereas it is suggested that it was written by a disciple of the Valentinian Gnostic movement, or even by Valentinus himself. Valentinus was a prominent Egyptian theologian from Early Christianity who founded the Gnostic movement Valentinianism in the 2nd century. Here, as we begin to understand the great love of Lord Jesus Christ as He watches over God's children, we can also start to see that trusting in God's will is necessary to be in complete union with Christ.
“Say, then, from the heart, that you are the perfect day, and in you dwells the Light that does not fail. Speak of the truth with those who search for it, and (of) knowledge to those who have committed sin in their error. Make firm the foot of those who have stumbled, and stretch out your hands to those who are ill. Feed those who are hungry, and give repose to those who are weary, and raise up those who wish to rise, awaken those who sleep. For you are the understanding that is drawn forth. If strength acts thus, it becomes even stronger. Be concerned with yourselves; do not concerned with other things which you have rejected from yourselves.”
