Question for all and sundry—

When you read in certain NT texts (Pastorals, 2 Peter, Jude, Acts) the warnings against false teachers, along with ex eventu prophecies that an era of widespread false teaching is about to corrupt the fledgling christian church,

Do you think the targets of these passages are more likely to be Sethians, or Valentinians, or Marcionites, or all of the above (or none)? I suppose we should marsall all these NT passages for a full answer to this question, but I assume most people are familiar with them, and I’m just wondering if there is a good evidentiary basis for answering this question.
