Who We Are

Vestiges of Christianity is a news blog maintained under the direction of Bishop Bryan D. Ouellette, Ph.D., SOSM. Our goal is to reconcile ancient Christian theology with contemporary orthodox Christian practices and understandings. Our praxis carries with it a strong eastern liturgical focus while maintaining a freedom of spirituality that is true to ancient Christian ideology. We welcome anyone who desires to discover gnosis through the expression of early Christianity. We use the word "gnosis" with the intention to reflect its original meaning of soteriological knowledge, mystical wisdom and spiritual realization. While we encourage a working philosophical comprehension of Classical Gnosticism from antiquity, we are not a Gnostic or reconstructionist church. Our theology is orthodox, our approach, furthermore, is mystically liberating.

Intimacy With God

It is unfortunate that so many Christians equate salvation with eternal life, paradise in heaven, and an end to suffering, but fail to see salvation's true purpose, which is absolute intimacy with God. On this edition of Vestiges of Christianity, Bishop Bryan Ouellette will discuss what salvation really means. Is Eternal Life a reward for a life well-lived or is it merely a consequence of entering into a perfect union with God?
