I have encountered the serpent many tims in my studies. It seems as though it comes from an even more ancient school of mysteries than Christianity.
The serpent was regarded as a symbol for subtle knowledge, and represented many different forms of wisdom.
There is a Hellenistic tendency in certain Gnostic gospels to call the serpent the "giver of wisdom." I think this is due to its more ancient
connotations to the Greeks being a symbol for wisdom. Hebrew traditions always held the serpent in low esteem, so we are likely to see all sorts of
conflicting writings about serpents and what they represent.
To understand this issue better, you have to know the different flavors of Gnostic teachings. They all loved the savior, but many of them wove him
into their existing myths. This was done to a great degree by the Romans, as you can imagine the distorting effect of the pagan nations of Rome
absorbing Chrstianity. Once they did so, they tried to standardize it, just like they have done to everything else, and that's what gave us the
Roman Catholic tyranny and the elimination of all "heretical" truths.
This destruction of light is what I blame for the curent condition of mankind - We were blinded again, even after Christ appeared, and civil
authorities regained their rule. At first the church was the authority of spiritual matters, and now in America, only civil authorities have any
power. Now, the power is moving from the civil system into the NWO/Globalist combination.
The question is about power! Christ made the individual powerful to rule over all things, and the NWO has emerged from the darkness to destroy the
individual and make this world a collective slave planet.
It is foolish for people not to address the spiritual component of the NWO and its associated groups and activites - Anyone trying to pursue or fight
it will fail if they do not build themselves from this key awareness.
The NWO IS a spiritual reorganization of the world. Actaully, what it does it DISPLACE spirituality in peoples and nations, and replace it with a
system of economies and international relationships. It makes "free-market democracies" which is just a code word for a society where the forces of
media and consumerism rule. It is by design, and by the malicious plotting of very powerful people. They want to rule this world, they want to own
you physically, and spiritually. People that don't recognize that this is a two edged sword are dangerously ignorant, and cannot hope to be
