Thelemites often like to submit Thelema as an eternal principle, open, and an updated Crowley. It becomes the basis of their proselytizing message. For example, this characteristic words: "the principle of Thelema existed long before Crowley, and that in particular he was well aware of how Jesus himself and the Christian Gnostics."
