      Does the (Manual of Discipline) fall into any Gnostic thoughts?

      God has created man to govern the world,and had appointed for
      him two spirits of truth and falsehood.Those born of truth spring from a
      fountain of light,but those born to falsehood spring form the source of
      darkness.All the children of righteousness are ruled by the Prince of Light
      and walk in the ways of the light,and all the children of falsehood are
      ruled by the Angel of Darkness and walk in the ways of the
      darkness.------(Manual of Discipline 3:18-21).

        Hey Mestizo

        The Manual of Discipline comes from a Jewish sectarian group that
        seems to have called themselves the "Yahad". Some believe these
        Yahad may have been the Essenes, but that is speculation. They do,
        however, have more in common with the Essenes than Gnostics, and
        this text does not generally exhibit any of the destinctive
        attributes of any Gnostic sect.
