- Aug 10, 2002Hi Flag, I come in peace, as usual. I am still crawling through the
web in search of a picture of what Gnosticism is. As is my wont, I
always decide that the picture I cobble together is only that, a
picture, then take it apart and start over. There is always that
little glow that comes with a completed picture before the realization
sets in, so I go for the glow.
Perhaps what intrigues me about the Gnostic notion is that it
parallels the ploy I came up with to confound the Christian notion
that the Bible meant what it said, being the word of God. This was way
before I ever heard of Gnosticism. Generally, I would tell them that
the Bible was written by the Devil as a way to relieve his boredom. It
was all a scam. The God in the book was to hold the truth and the
Devil was to try to take that truth away. He created people so that he
could play the game. My question to any and all objections given was,
"That's exactly what the Devil wants you to believe." Great fun,
especially with the door to door God sellers.
Anyway, I ran across the following site that gave me what I thought
was the best picture of Gnosticism so far. How does it fit, or not
fit, with your Big G picture?
