Paul's Passing Thoughts

Confirmed by Trump’s Inauguration: ALL American Religious Denominations are Essentially Gnostic

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on January 21, 2017

babyGnosticism and all its various forms was the primary nemesis of 1st century Christianity. In fact, Gnosticism is the foundation of the clear majority of religions save a few. What is it?

It shouldn’t surprise us, but it is the religion that even spoofed God’s created beings Adam and Eve. If it worked on them, why reinvent the wheel? Gnosticism is the “knowledge of good and evil.” It is a strict state-of-being reality between the material world and what is invisible. The material world is evil and the invisible world is good in a manner of speaking, but in all cases, escaping the material world signified by bondage for the freedom of the “spiritual realm” is the utopic goal. The escape is progressive via some religious doctrine and finalized by death.

God drove a Mac truck over Gnosticism through Christ who united holiness with the material world, but of course, religious people can be very thick headed. Most of Christ’s life was a demonstrable statement against Gnosticism.

First, Gnosticism makes weakness and sin synonymous. Mortality and holiness/goodness are mutually exclusive. In the case of Protestantism, perfect law-keeping of the biblical variety defines goodness. Hence, the only good President is a Christian president and if a Christian president doesn’t get elected all bets are off; basically, the United States might as well get nuked by China tomorrow. In fact, we deserve such for not electing Mike Huckabee since we are a decadent nation that has obviously turned its back on God because we refuse to elect a “Christian” president.

This will present itself something like this when someone like Trump is elected: “Our President is Jesus (pronounced, “GeeeeeeJuuuuus”) not Donald Trump the evil one.

Secondly, infatuation with the trending exchange of power event will be deemed man-worship as opposed to Jesus-worship. It’s an either/or view of reality.

And thirdly, this results in a primary hallmark of Gnosticism: denial of cause and effect, and fourthly, an utter indifference to present-day societal injustice.

Let me summarize the mentality of numbers 3 and 4 this way: “Whether we have another holocaust in our day is neither here nor there because Jesus is coming back anyway. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen because GeeeeJuuuuus is in total control. Besides, God is presently judging America for not electing Mike Huckabee anyway.”

This manifestation of Gnosticism denies practical cause and effect and assumes that God cares little about present societal justice in the present material world. Of course, this is the antithesis of what the Bible states about God who is “angry everyday” with present injustice.

Gnosticism throws out the material baby with the material bathwater—it looks at the baby in the featured picture and says, “That’s what happens when people turn their back on God; praise GeeeeJuuuuus.”

Those not of the Gnostic worldview prefer as little carnage as possible until Jesus returns and are therefore willing to partake in present-day practical cause and effect. Gnostics will have more of a “let go and let God” indifference to practicality because everything material sucks anyway.

Gnostic underpinning will often lead to fundamental Gnostics under many different nomenclatures to deny the above intellectually, but nevertheless function per Gnosticism in the practice of their worldview.

Really, all denominations, Calvinists, Arminians, and Baptists et al should just come under one umbrella and sit around the campfire singing Kumbaya because they are all fundamentally Gnostic.

    The so-called Reformation (that imagined “act of God”) was one huge gnostic whoopee.

      Really it was and is documented in church history if one bothers to give it a glance. Augustine was not only the undisputed Doctor of Grace for both Catholicism and Protestantism, but was an avowed Neo-Platonist which was the forerunner of Gnosticism. Augustine claimed that Plato was a “pre-Christian” Christian and insisted that the Bible was worthless without Plato’s insight. The fact that Catholicism and Protestantism both are grounded in Gnosticism is by no means ambiguous historical fact by any measure.

    Oh. Dear. Wickedness.

    How, oh how, did our brothers and sisters in the Lord manage before the Reformation and without the insights (gnosis) of the Reformation’s intellectual dwarfs Augustine, Wycliffe, Calvin, Luther (an Augustinian monk or friar…who cares?), Zwingli, and other dwarfs and gargoyles?

    I don’t know, maybe exactly the way that Jesus had told them to? Which was perfect.

    And I think (gnosis, my style) that Satan had spotted a gap in the souls market just after his dealings with Augustine and then Satan had a 1000 years or so to think up a monster gnostic party, and then he invited Calvin and Luther and sold them authority, control, some intimate knowledge of a land far off, and the keys to heaven. Knowing what was to come (Satan also had gnosis), he drafted a thick book, which covered pesky topics such as “How to defend sexual abuse,” How to sexually abuse anyone, especially young women without being caught,” and “How to deny any sexual accusations should you be caught and how to turn the accuser into the accused, Satan’s style.”

    And there we have it. Now try to prove me wrong. I have gnosis.

    The stealth neo-cal pastor mentioned “our Catholic brothers and sisters” in one of the last sermons I was there for. It made me think that he’s worshipping the “coexist” god. I have an Othodox friend who said what you believe matters, and she beleived I was wrong, which I appreciated. Clearly, if I believed she was right, I’d convert.

    If Protestants can’t protest RC anymore, then what is their function? I was telling my kids that you never heard churched vs. unchurched as adjectives until recently. That’s because these protestants have destroyed the brand so much that saved people don’t want to be in the midst of the monster they’ve created. You just get the heebie jeebies when you go there.

    Weakness vs. Sin is a huge confusion point in The Gospel Project. It wore me out week after week trying to point out what the Bible really teaches about sin and such.

    A study on the mystery religions will really show you what the “other” side is up to.

      Right, the gospel has become defined by “humbleness” viz, submitting yourself to a religious authority or church. What they believe or their orthodoxy is becoming more and more irrelevant.

        What they believe is totally irrelevant. One of the Protestant non-denominational (independent) churches I visited had no cross and no statement of beliefs. Nada. Christianity is not a religion; it’s a relationship. But “we aren’t Baptist.” (Mercy me! Is that good or bad?) Okay, if you aren’t “Baptist” then what are you? I guess they just make up what they believe as they go along! I lasted eight sermons and then one day I thought to myself that the pastor’s wife looked like a victim of domestic violence. Seriously. That intuitive thought was a direct hit! Anger management and control issues! That man preached his last sermon.

    I know a woman in an SBC church who is teaching four year olds using the Gospel project. She is not the type who questions anything but even she is concerned about the lessons for the four-year-olds so you know it has to be bad.

      How does that song go? “It’s nature’s way of telling you somethings wrong”…la, la, la” A false gospel is what is wrong.
