StClementOfAlexandria.AndreThevet.1584

In oppposing the Gnostic heresy, Clement was arguing for something important: the idea that God saves us in the world, not from the world. Our God is knowable, he said, not removed and uninvolved. In fact, he said, what God offers us is intimacy – but most of us are too resistant to accept the gift. (Andre Thevet, 1584)
