Thanks, Pat Peterson, for giving me the drill on Babylonian Mystery Religions. I saw that Gnosticism, a kind of enshrinement of the Luciferic “tree of knowledge,” mindpower-as-godmaking, held all the tenets of Babylonian Mystery Religions. Babylonian Mystery Religions are a simply civillized Satanism, encompassing the opposite of what God has revealed about His nature and His will. This is basically a movement as old as the Garden of Eden. So I was delighted to find confirmation that gnosticism, invariably categorized as an early Christian cult, actually predated Christianity.
Gnostics revulsed pre-Christian Romans for their faking of “ancient” documents and other affronts to scholarship. One Roman school of philosophy made it a particular point to refute the phony Gnostic Gnow-It-Alls. Gnosticism, in contradicting all that God reveals, emphasizes homosexuality and a disdain for the Woman & Seed, hating the corporeal body and so either indulging it or denying it, even to suicide. The homosexual Gnostic “gospels” are rarely treated in the gushy pieces like the one I just watched on the History Channel.
The Gnostic “gospel” of Thomas, for example, says that women can’t enter into Heaven, with “Jesus” giving the assurance that he can work the miracle of turning women into men. There is the Gnostic “Laughing Jesus” heresy: “Jesus” responding to all questions by laughing; and the pederast “Jesus” who raises a boy from the dead to have sex with him. Oy! Then there’s the “Jesus” married to “Mary Magdalene” as depicted graphically in DaVinci’s “Last Supper” with a decidedly effeminate “John.” Oy vay!
May the Way, Truth and Life swiftly vanquish the Father of Lies and Murder. AMEN
