Jesus asked. Have ye forgotten that ye are Gods?
In Gnostic Christianity we recognize that there are many gods and Gods and we seek those within ourselves, which is the only place a God can exist, if you believe Jesus.
That is why we call God I am and mean ourselves after Gnosis.
Gnostic Christian Jesus said, “If those who attract you say, ‘See, the Kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you.
If they say to you, ‘It is under the earth,’ then the fish of the sea will precede you.
Rather, the Kingdom of God is inside of you, and it is outside of you.
[Those who] become acquainted with [themselves] will find it; [and when you] become acquainted with yourselves, [you will understand that] it is you who are the sons of the living Father.
But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”
