In order to walk steadfast as a warrior of the light, the treasure of faith is absolutely essential. Faith really means "confidence, trust, integrity."
"Faith is pure knowledge, direct experiential wisdom. Faith has always been confused with vain beliefs; Gnostics must never make such a serious mistake. Faith is direct experience of the real, the magnificent vivification of the Inner Human Being, authentic Divine cognition... Faith is the direct perception of what is real, it is fundamental wisdom; it is the experience of that which is beyond the body, the affections and the mind." -Gnostic Teachings
