Re: [Gnosticism2] Re: Gnostics and Templars
- Sophia who represents wisdom is one of the primary characters in the Origin of Creation in Gnostic literature.What I find intersting though is that the wherever the word wisdom is found in the Catholic Bible, the pronoun she is still used to add further description! This to me is odd since, after all Catholicism is definitely male based, and the translators would have obviously been bias towards using the male pronoun "he" over "she". To me this stands as evidence that the truth was never completely erased. There is also a theory out there in heresy land that the Holy Spirit or "spirit of truth" spoken about in scripture is actually the spiritual feminine aspect. Any comments? ... Carter.

We really need a group called All Heresies Welcome to cover these
things, though I guess the Eastern Orthodox Church would still be
left out. Maybe All Heresies and near Heresies Welcome. :-)
