      Although the Gnostic revival has positively infused modern
      spirituality, film and art, and even religious institutions in the
      last twenty years, all is not well in the esoteric Denmark. Many
      Neo-Gnostics have either warped or completely disregarded the core
      essence of the Gnostics spirit. Other groups have simply adopted and
      adulterated the term 'Gnostic' to fit their New Age agendas with no
      basis on the ancient heretics. It has caused great confusion to those
      seeking the journey back to Sophia and the Logos. We separate the
      wheat from the chaff, so that in your path is not distracted by cults,
      allowed teachings and a rising cottage industry of Cult of
      Personalities.

      Topics Discussed:

      --How both myth and history are essential to Gnosticism, although
      confusing them is very perilous.
      --Why and enlightenment and gnosis might be two completely different
      concepts.
      --Tell-tale signs that you've joined a false Gnostic organization or
      that you are actually a false Gnostic.
      --Why Dogma is essential to Gnosticism.
      --The reasons `personal experience' should not trump `religious
      teachings' in most cases.
      --Where the Gnostic `world-hating' and what does that mean anyway?
      --The fable that the Gnostics were a monolithic religion battling a
      monolithic Orthodox religion in the first and second century.
      --Are good works necessary in Gnosticism?
      --Dispelling the notion that the Classic Gnostic were a secretive
      group but actually an inclusive movement that welcomed all religions
      and philosophies.

      And much more!!! Looking in the mirror is not easy, but lying to
      yourself is the easiest thing you'll do in life.
