Another major heresy that the first century church, and even later generations, needed to deal with was Gnosticism. Two major forms of Gnosticism were Marcionism, and Docetism. Gene shares some history, talks about major Gnostic figures such as Marcion the first arch-heretic, major themes, and echoes of Gnosticism today.

The main or leading heresy was in how Gnostics saw an evil Yahweh in the scriptures, while what became the orthodoxy saw a good Yahweh.

Morally speaking, Gnostic were/are way ahead of those who venerated a genocidal, homophobic and misogynous Yahweh/Jesus combo.

This guy is lying and distorting Gnostic teachings just as the other inquisitors did.

If what he says Gnostics did sexually, they would not have lasted like the Cathars did.

300 + years.

If you are interested in Gnostic Christian teachings, you will throw this guys slanted to Christian info in the garbage.

Gnostic Christians love matter and reality.

Christians who say we do not are lying.

The Gnostic Jesus say heaven in the here and now.

It would be really stupid if he did not like what he saw.

Just as stupid as believing what murderers and inquisitors say about who they murder.
