been on the same page all along). Since this relates to a matter of
a personal nature, you may choose to treat it as a rhetorical
question, but I'll ask nonetheless:
Realizing that you preside over a Gnostic church, I'm curious why you
made that choice, rather than . . . say . . . a Methodist church?
I'm hoping you won't tell me something like, "It's a shorter
commute," although I wouldn't put it past you. LOL In spite of the
dangers of "assuming" anything, I'd wager that there was "something"
about the Gnostic viewpoint that resonated differently for you than
within the mainstream.
Again, this is the gist of the case I've tried to present herethat
there IS a difference, otherwise, none of us would be at a Gnostic
site, there would be no Gnosticism category, and any of us of a
religious persuasion would be attending the VERY SAME Church since
such terms as heterodox and orthodox have been defenestrated for
utter lack of interest.
