- Just to back Peggy's point here, Lynette, "The Bible" is not
necessarily in agreement with Gnostic texts, and that view
of "Christ" is often quite at odds with the points being made in the
Gnostic texts. An historical Jesus probably existed, but it is far
from certain... and of doubtful importance to Gnostics.

I think one-liners are better suited for a comedy club, so your
appeal to Reason here was much appreciated.
