Re: Sleeper awake!

There are many versions of Gnosticism like I said. The NH papers have at least three, And you know this because you've read other stuff, but not the NHL. Read the texts codex-to-codex. So these guys had what, three or four mystery religion per holy book, now pick at leisure? Stop tailoring the worl...

Re: Sleeper awake!

The gospel of John is gnostic. Huh? I thought you said gnosis was suppressed by the Church? There are many types of philosophies, you can divide them by being secular or religious, but the NHC brand of gnosis is counter to religion. Religion demands belief. Gnosis demands awareness that a bigger pi...

Re: Sleeper awake!

Start thinking normal, start thinking straight. Most of the stuff we know about Gnosticism today, we know from two sources: - Church Fathers and a few Greek fragments - NHL & assorted Egyptian texts You seem rather keen on trusting the former, so there is no helping there. Maybe there was Gnost...

Re: Outstretched hands and The Cross

It all works if you consider stuff like Bruce Codex being a FORGERY in the name of THEOLOGY and speak like Trump to all that don't. When is the Bruce Codex said to be forged? In another topic, where I brought it up as an example of a description of a cross instead of a stake in a rather ancient man...

Re: the Sethians

However, since Sethians identified Seth with Christ (Second Logos of the Great Seth), Philaster's belief that the Sethians had pre-Christian origins, other than in syncretic absorption of Jewish and Greek pre-Christian sources, has not found acceptance in later scholarship.[7]' But why..? I'd have ...

Re: did you know???

Can't you read? Stakes have nothing stretched out. Is this too difficult for you? Haven't you read how they did it? That's how they did it. Should I care what devout Christians are phantacising? Why do you? Stick to facts. So to sum it up, stauros means cross and not stake because stakes have nothi...

Re: did you know???

Geocalyx: there was nothing stretched out on a stauros. The text of the Bruce Codex is obviously a forgery in the name of THEOLOGY, by a very devout Christian.
Forgery of what?

Re: did you know???

That in the whole NT including Paul the word is "stauros" meaning stake, and not cross. That the word cross (and crucify and crucifixion) comes from after 400. When the bible was translated from greek into latin, stauros became crux. Crux means by the way also stake. So the translator did...

Re: The Biblical God is not infinite

Nice! I did a literal translation of Apocryphon of John into my native tongue (turned it into a free verse sort of deal after noticing it has a certain rythm to it and rhymes in places) and have been working on a Thomas one. Thomas really is a complex piece of work! I'm not sure how Logion 74: said ...
