I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours?

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

As a Gnostic Christian, I follow the esoteric teachings of Jesus.

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.

This fits perfectly with the bibles teachings that we are to judge all things and hold to the good.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.

This is a compulsion to be our own masters instead of just kowtowing to someone else’s opinions.

This is also why Christians used their inquisitions on us. Freedom of thought was not allowed by Christianity.

A concept and freedom that Christians now seem to promote.

Many Christians follow the teachings of, to us, a genocidal and infanticidal demiurge, Yahweh.

How Christians can see him as a good god is beyond me and Christians shy away from any apologetics as to why they think such a satanic god is good.

I see my judgements as more moral than that immoral demiurge and that is why I have rejected him for Jesus.

Do you follow 1 Thessalonians 5:21, or do you let someone else do your judging for you?

your first line minds me of the first attempts at colonizing...Greenland, i think it was, where the colonizers failed to adopt the (strange, to them) customs of the natives, and all perished. Imo many Xtians do "plead the blood" and whatnot, not realizing that that puts them firmly under the law, and makes them Esau as well, but then this is all reconciled in a fuller understanding of the Bible too, imo, just like your genocide/infanticide thing there, which most likely never literally happened anyway, https://biblicalhistoricalcontext.com/i ... sh-things/ but might be in the one that comes next too gotta run peace bro :)

"which most likely never literally happened anyway,"

Of course it never happened. The bible is an adult fairy tale.

As for authorities? I don't believe in such things.
I admit that history is not my greatest forte, but I know a guy who would pin your ears back. So to speak

Correct, lovingly please, any historical statement I put. Where have I failed?

I come to these places to be corrected. If I cannot be corrected I gain nothing, Correction is the prise I seek.

On authorities.

Is your ideology and way of thinking not made up of the thinking of people you respect and emulate?

In a sense, have you not taken their thinking as authoritative thinking? It must be so as that is what you are living. No?
i think "gnostic" was originally a put-down, along the lines of "know-it-all?"

well to you maybe, yes, but until pretty recently mythology was the only vehicle humans had to forward knowledge to the next generation eh? If one reads literally, i guess the wisdom stays hidden :)
it appears like plenty of Israelites literally sacrificed their children to Molech!
