Thanks a lot gnostics gurus, maybe if you didn't hold the purse strings to the sacred knowlege so tight, we wouldn't be in the mess. So really the Gnostic "masters" are guilty of the sin of pride, for failing to share this important knowledge, because they want to be the only ones to be "masters"
However, this line of thinking contradicts the existentialist philosophy I have utilized the majority of my life, and I must disagree with the basic premises the Gnostics use to proove their theory. IE, humans are disgusting polluted byproducts of gods light; all of our instincts are evil and against gods will; the earth is a living hell and all of the pain is a byproduct of sex. So basically, Gnostics are masochistic, "whipping themselves" for impure thoughts?
