which I was just now replying, but let me follow it up by pointing
out an example in this post.
If people are dependent on a particular group (or sacrament) for
their spiritual salvation, then it is obviously not an individual
process. In fact, if something like "swearing" is considered
a "mortal sin" (as opposed to the sin of ignorance), then it's quite
apparent that gnosis has little soteriological value in such a system.
