A gnostic sermon attempt

I feel kind of triggered by Gnostic Bishop's morality ramblings representing 'gnosis' on this forum ... so let me give a short gnostic sermon as a small outlet of my irritation. Let's have a gnostic religious moment here, however absurd does the very thought sound (gnosis is a reaction to religion, not really a system of beliefs other than the basic ones we commonly have as children).

*cough*

The Father is awesome. Without him, we wouldn't be here, and without him, we wouldn't have a mind to think about him, either.
He is beyond condemnation (kathgoria) though, we can only use the mind to praise the glories that surround him.
His presence is approachable yet unnaproachable and four guiding lights of peace, understanding, perception and contemplation show the way to his presence and it is proper to follow them.
The Father loves all his children, all species (taxis) and wishes for them to tolerate one another and respect each other.

That much is apparent to any little child. However, in the very being (aion) happened a fall. Part of that great invisible Being which is all there is...for that being, has sought to know the Highest; it was Wisdom, for it is in her nature to know things - she became arrogant and stepped out of her place by wanting to know something which was unknowable.
The being's Mind was unwilling to participate in this, so she contorted for herself an image - which became alive and created, in that being, a 'man' in its own image. Thus our own perception of ourselves is not a simple reflection, it is a physical abberation created by a false image of the highest.
Beasts and words have become flesh. Guys and things that never existed now suddenly do, and rule the earth. We should arm our forts of last refuge - our heads - with guards that are thoughts, ramblings, decisions and logic, following the four guiding Lights and not allow our last forts of refuge to become overrun by monsters and fantasies of artificial design.
Common sense will be our redeemer. Great is the Father who has given us Mind to know and understand and love one another, and praise his Son, who shall be the guide, the Savior (sothr), to bring beings from earthly chaos and feel the Father's love.

The Most Holy Random Sermon
On paper, my name is this guy
In the flesh, I am called differently
The Father who inspired this is really cool

PS Catholics seldom get this, but this kind of worldview cannot be considered religion:
... seems like you guys need to believe in your God, while as a gnostic, I should know my kind of highest exists, and I myself am the evidence. There is no device between me and the evidence of cosmic love I receive daily just by being able to exist and think. No faith, no customs, no mystery. Just Father. I am an atheist, I swear by no God. The Father loves me and everyone and that is all that suffices.

This is the Knowledge of the invisible God according to those coptic leftover texts. *shrug* None of that esotero whatever garbage of today, much less gnostic churches and rejected early Christianity and whatnot.

I guess that you are not aware of the Jewish esoteric denominations and other cabalistic divisions and teachings that Jesus himself taught.

He taught of our single eye. Third eye to the more eastern religions that trained Jesus. If he ever actually lived that is.

Here are some examples which are a part of a O.P. showing why I call my god I am.

It is not that far from what you think.

Modern Gnostic Christians name our god "I am", and yes, we do mean ourselves.

You are your controller. I am mine. You represent and present whatever mind picture you have of your God or ideal human, and so do I.

The name "I Am" you might see as meaning something like, --- I think I have grown up thanks to having forced my apotheosis through Gnosis and meditation.

In Gnostic Christianity, we follow the Christian tradition that Christians have forgotten that they are to do. That is, become brethren to Jesus.

That is why some say that the only good Christian is a Gnostic Christian.

Here is the real way to salvation that Jesus taught.

Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Allan Watts explain those quotes in detail.

Joseph Campbell shows the same esoteric ecumenist idea in this link.

The bible just plainly says to put away the things of children. The supernatural and literal reading of myths.

Why are you irritated with a Gnostic Christian showing Christians why they are wrong in idol worshiping a h
genocidal son murdering prick of a god?

Gnostic have always named Yahweh a vile demiurge and I follow that moral practice.

What is your beef with that? Where they/we wrong?
