I think the Bible sets a good example where it has a balance of dogma, stories and esoteric symbolism. You need a little bit of each, but the Gnostics I've met get autistically fixated on the big brained stuff esoteric stuff. A pinch of it is good, too much of it is heretical/gay
Well I believe Gnosticism predates Gnostic Christianity. I imagine there are several variants of it as well.
Gnostic Christians specifically believe that Christ was an emanation of the true God, the root of all things. Other Gnostics probably don't believe in that so they might believe that the true God doesn't intervene at all
That makes sense
What's up with p*gans like styx practicing occultism
I'd be interesting to see the origins of the occult, because while a lot of it comes form Gnosticism and Kaballah and that sort of folk lore there's probably some derived from pagan elements as well and Styx would probably know about that
theres also general stuff like alchemy and hermeticism which aren't explicitly Jewish or Christian in origin
But a lot of seems to just basically be Satanism. That's what Anton Lavey the Church of Satan guy said, that basically he was the only honest new age person because he admitted it was satanism
I know Styx literally used to study this stuff as part of his career so he's probably got a pretty deep understanding of it
Yea that makes sense. Styx is a weirdo edge lord but it seems like he studies theology on an autistic level
Gnosticism is Protestantism without the book
Gnosticism is basically Christianity for hyper-individualistic edgelords who don't want to go to church
I don't think Styx is very knowledgeable about Christianity at all. He has a very basic bitch condescending understanding of it.
He's at least better than the atheist like AIU that just sit there and ask condescending questions
And then say they don't want to talk about whatever your counter point is
styx has a knowledge of ancient stuff / occult stuff and anything esoteric, I don't think he's ever studied christianity or any religion extensively, he seems like he's more into the weird/spooky stuff
I’ve seen some of his stuff on it, he definitely has
He just doesn’t go hard on it because he likes religious people
he has read the bible multiple times apparently
Yeah. I’m not a big Styx guy but he definitely knows his stuff about Christianity
but he never read the summa
well then he doesnt know shit
Let's talk books
People are reading city of God
People are reading The Confessions
People are reading Guns Germs and Steel
People are reading The Diary of Anne Frank
People are reading Gregory Malchuk's manifesto
People are reading Kanye's Twitter
People are reading Dialectic of Enlightenment
what is that shit list with cuckold shit
It's a meme
I like how it goes from trump to siege
Fellas I'm having trouble deciding what I want to read next. Been thinking about starting on Nick's list or one of these two.
Fwiw I've already read everything on the top row but the Bible and Leviathan of the second list
has anyone read Fear and Trembling?
what are some good books about jews that were written by catholics?
