    The Gnostic Christians were right. Do you recognize that you live in heaven?

    Jesus said; If the false preachers who attract you for your money say, --- See, the Kingdom is in the sky, --- then the birds of the sky will precede you.
    If the false preachers who attract you for your money say to you, --- It is under the earth, --- then the fish of the sea will precede you.
    Rather, the Kingdom of God is inside of you, and it is outside of you.
    Those who become acquainted with themselves through Gnosis will find it; and when you become acquainted with yourselves, you will understand that it is you who are the sons of the living Father.

    But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.

    Heaven can be described as the best of all possible worlds.

    You, if we eliminate all other possible imaginary worlds you can envisage, --- must admit that this is the best of all possible worlds, --- since it is the only possible world.

    This world thus fits the description of heaven, and the Gnostic Christians were decimated by the Inquisitions because the church wanted to keep the people spiritually poor.

    All religions and preachers continue to be false prophets today, except for Gnostic Christians.

    Nature always creates life for the best of all possible ends. You are a part of nature and are living in your best possible end at all points in time, given your history. This is irrefutable.

    As a Gnostic Christian who has suffered apotheosis, I am rich. I suggest that you also seek apotheosis. It is worth finding.

    Are you poverty or are you spiritually rich?

    Regards
    DL

    Wow, you are all over the map. First it is atheism, then Luciferianism, now Gnosticism?

    Get back to us when you are done.

    It should be more about you then convincing others to do what you are doing.

    Gnostics were socialists and were a reaction to Christianity.

    Well, that is a matter of perspective.

    If you went to a Unitarian Church, the Gospels of Thomas, Mary, and other apocryphal gospels, just because they are populist in nature rather than hierarchical, does not mean they are necessarily "anti-Christian," they just aren't recognized as divine by elite religious leaders.

    OTH, folks that have done their research understand that they have a lineage that goes back just as far and is just as genuine as the other holy texts.


    The same philosophical division that led to be the protestant reformation led to these texts being left out of the creation of what we now know of as the original Nicene created bible of Rome.

    News for ya, the fathers kingdom is voluntarily "socialist." Only on earth is it not. This is how ascension is achieved. When you make this realization, no material desires matter.

    Material wants do not figure into the spiritual paradigm.

    We are called to be stewards of the material world.

    Stewards? Agreed.

    Not to replace the material world as a new god though. . . .
