That actually comes from Irenaeus 2ns in apostolic succession from John the apostle. And before the fire at Alexandria to boot. You should read his
"Against Heresies" volumes which you can find online. And i don't find it any different than Christ getting pissed at the moneychangers perverting
the temple and turning over tbeir tables and driving them out with whips. False doctrine is absolutely critical, men's eternal destiny hangs in the

I have... thank you...
Lets take a look shall we?
Marcion of Pontus succeeded him, and developed his doctrine. In so doing, he advanced the most daring blasphemy against Him who is proclaimed as
God by the law and the prophets, declaring Him to be the author of evils, to take delight in war, to be infirm of purpose, and even to be contrary to
Sounds true so far... OT God contradicts his own laws on the regular... Delights in the death and destruction of his own children (apparently)
And we continue on...
Jesus being derived from that father who is above the God that made the world, and coming into Judæa in the times of Pontius Pilate the governor, who
was the procurator of Tiberius Cæsar, was manifested in the form of a man to those who were in Judæa, abolishing the prophets and the law, and all

not Good, but theres no proof of this claim since his work was destroyed so we can only rely on the testamony of those that didn't like him...
as i've said.... one sided.
Theres no way to say if what is said about Marcion was true or not without comparing his own work to what is said about it. But i also see no reason
to believe what Irenaeus had to say about someone he didn't like to begin with... He wrote about how transmigration of the soul is impossible, and
what is wrote about is is a very narrow minded view... which implies that God could not possibly hide the memory of past lives from us... Or even
lacks the ability...
Thats his faith in God i guess
