Members of the True Gnostic Church covenant to make sacrifices in the form of their time, effort and money. Justified True Believers contribute a 10% monthly tithe on their income.

 

The power of this covenant manifests in the following ways:

freedom from illusions

joy, meaning and purpose

decreased conflict between the lesser and greater self

decreased attachment and servitude to temporal things

personal evidence that God and spirituality are truly important

 

The True Gnostic Church does not accept donations from non-members. Offerings from TGC members will be utilized to support the continued publication of the Song of God and other related church material. All proceeds from book sales go directly into the same fund. In addition, member contributions may be used to support functions which are considered essential to the outreach of the church, and for creating tangible benefits for Justified True Believers. This includes but is not limited to the establishment of community Tabernacles of Peace, and the future Gardens of Ondi-Ahman.

 

The True Gnostic Church is not a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.

 

 

Notes/References

 

For in the giving of time and effort and money also, even by these things do you fill up your heart and mind with Heaven, causing that all shadows and illusions should flee themselves away, finding in you no darkness where they might lurk and constant grow.

4th Endowment 31:38

 

If then you would free yourself of every illusion, then be you wise and act with firmness, being eager to take to your soul the joy of sacrifice; becoming in your daily offerings like unto a good and loving mother, who for the love of her family will gladly sacrifice even all she has, and this in joy.

4th Endowment 31:14  

 

Neither fear such sacrifices as you are called to bear from time to time, for by such sacrifices as you do make, do you cause that your own soul should fly and sing, being made yourself as one with God, to become yourselves as angels upon the earth.

4th Endowment 18:47

 

6.  Thus if you would free yourself of illusion, to sweep away the shadows before your eyes, then know most deeply within that in the sacrifice of temporal things are all illusions swept away, causing your spirit to come alive within you.

7.  For at your birth is there heaped upon you the illusions of mortality, causing that in your youth you should continue such illusions as even your own parents and friends are subject to; and in the living of your life do you add to these the delusions of the self, imprisoning yourselves in obscurities and darknesses of every kind.

8.  Yet in the sacrifice of temporal things do you set free yourself of every illusion, to draw yourself closer unto God; for it is in the sacrifice of such temporal things as would imprison you that you grow day by day ever more spiritual, causing that there should shine out from the depths of you all things sacred and divine.

9.  But if you will not sacrifice the temporal while yet you claim yourself as one made spiritual, then have you deceived yourself, and there is no light in you but darkness only.

10.  Preaching to yourself the sermons of the ego, permitting that you should do nothing for God, but for yourself only; becoming through the darkness of your lesser self both dogmatic and suspicious.

11.  Being made subject to anger and wrath and bitter words, wherein you do wound yourself again and again upon the rocks of your own deception.

12.  Mocking those who would grow in God through the offering up of such temporal things as you would cleave to most dearly, striving through subtle words to turn them away from sacrifice, to make them as yourself.

13.  Hoping thereby to remove yourself from condemnation; for you know already that in the sacrifice of the true believer is all your falseness made revealed, being yourself exposed for all to see as some imposter who would pretend to do service to God, yet in your heart would you serve yourself alone, to find some great advantage.

14.  If then you would free yourself of every illusion, then be you wise and act with firmness, being eager to take to your soul the joy of sacrifice; becoming in your daily offerings like unto a good and loving mother, who for the love of her family will gladly sacrifice even all she has, and this in joy.

4th Endowment 31:6-14

 

Know then that in the taking of a covenant do you join yourself to God, and this by your own desire; for the covenant is the bridge which crosses o’er the chasm, which chasm is the illusions of mortal life, opening up before your eyes the realness of God and Heaven.

Thus in the taking of a covenant is God made a participant in your life, having set aside through covenant, the scourge of unrighteous dominion, permitting that God should act in your behalf, even as you, through covenant would act for God.

7th Endowment 5:10-11

 

Gnostic Christians vs True Gnostics

“For in the true Fellowship of God

are even all made as one through covenant,

which covenant would forge together a single heart and mind,

reflecting through good fellowship the family of God on earth.”
