Are Gnostics the Village Idiots?

What do they believe? What do you think? Talk about religion as it exists today.

Just noted the O.P., Thanks for this opportunity to show others how ignorant you are of Gnostic Christianity.

You begin well on that path by using a quote as your main statement.

Just what is it about Gnostic Christian beliefs that you think idiotic?

I have already corrected some of your more idiotic notions of us and since those corrections did not take, I see you as the idiot.

Do you trust Arnoldo, a stranger to me, to referee?

Let him decide who is the idiot, idiot, and that way we do not have to waste time calling each other names and ignoring each others points.

Cowards can never be moral.

um, i think "village idiot" is kinda meant in a different sense there, but its been a while since i read the article.
anyway, i was just goosing you lol
but i mean the title did fit the article right :)
seems like the article did make some point or other, if you want to comment on that ill review

hny gb

ps i think youre an atheist? or at least you sure seem mad at Yah g
I still consider myself a cut above atheists and agnostics
yeh i guess we are pretty much all standing where we should not be, there
but they are catching up to me now that they are opening atheist churches.

I am not angry with the imaginary Yahweh. I am angry with his vile homophobic and misogynous religion and how moral people will follow a genocidal prick of a god.
why do you call them moral then, one might wonder
I am angry with Satan worship by immoral fools.
wadr "angry" and "satan worship" pretty much go together?
As to Gnosticism, pick your issue.
tbh i have none, imo the term is defined however the definer wishes it to be defined, and is practically meaningless, like "Christian" or "atheist" or even "believer"

I should have put a degree.

Few, if any Christians are as immoral as the genocidal prick, Yahweh, that they follow.

They still show a high level of immoral thinking and ethics by supporting a homophobic and misogynous religion.

If you have no issues with Gnosticism, then you are the village idiot for trying to apply the name.

Yah is a myth, fool, and cannot condone even the endless garbage you put here.

Whoa, hey there. Let's discuss the NHL and Egyptians. Nobody does that! Everyone just talks about what other people say about "gnosis". Screw that.

First off, Ialdabaoth is an actual person who still exists, but not truly. Apocryphon of John claims this bloke, body-of-serpent-head-of-lion, instituted the Week. Guess who an actual person who did that was. And yes, his rule, the week, still lasts.

Secondly, Father is the All. He is community. His gift, his Son, is common sense. "Common" literally and otherwise.

Everyone is in community, but community itself is in no one. Community, community, why have thou forsaken me? (= Why indeed have these people turned against me??) - just a few examples.

His counterpart is the Archon. Prescribed, ignorant outsider's rule. Archon wants you to believe the world is just as he shows it. He lies. There is more to the world than what is prescribed in some Roman emperor-enforced fairy tale.

Oh look, a cross in the sky! And a Roman soldier is there to witness it! And there are also two men with heads till heavens, and a third one with head above heavens, and get this, the cross speaks!
Gnosticism in its many guises can only flourish in a society that cares for its feeble minded, and people can succumb to the lures of it only when their food, health care, and urban infrastructure are provided for by people that faithfully operate by means of the scientific method. Ancient people who lived much closer to nature and whose lives depended on the soundness of their information had very little use for predictions that didn't pan out (Proverbs 12:11, 28:19), and the peddlers of such misinformation were duly executed (Deuteronomy 18:20-22, 1 Kings 18:40)..." http://www.abarim-publications.com/Dict ... cLL-tFOmhA , "Don't sell the bike shop, Orville"
Gnosticism, yes. Gnosis, no.

Only the generation without a King will know the truth.

Those with an understanding mind will understand.

Gnosticism, without Gnosis is would be a useless practice.
