Seeds of Gnosticism Still Rooting Two thousand Years Later

Reader comment on item: The Perilous Path from Muslim to Christian
in response to reader comment: Muslims do not suddenly start to believe in Jesus. Misguided Christians' wishful thinking.

Whether one is Muslim, Judaic, or Gentile, coming to faith in Yeshua HaMashiach is not impossible; neither does it contradict the Gospel in representing the overwhelming love of the Almighty Eternal Sovereign. Are we to presume that thinking it is impossible for Muslim to be saved can be attributed to a powerless HaShem that did not send His Son for that very purpose, not only for the Muslim, but for everyone that chooses to believe?
Gnosticism was introduced in the early Messianic communities with originally predominant Jewish congregants, then later amongst the Goyim (including pre-Islamic Arabs, Aramaic and Greek followers) in order for the Adversary to discredit belief in the Jewish Messiah, introducing anti-Semitism as one of the tools as well. Christians are only misguided if they listen to the wrong sources, especially those that try to use the Tanakh against itself.
