This deep into the election season and one thing is certain. This is like no other race in decades. A shake up of 'the establishment' . The underdog is winning..or is he? Is the voice of America being heard or are we all unwillingly playing right into the hands of those who are the 'establishment'. The MSM is on fire with articles about who is best and who is worst. Slamming Trump but no mention of email servers...calling Rubio a robot but not telling you Bernie lived on welfare. Cruz is a flip-flopper but BIll is back on the trail. Cleaning the clock of the GOP and raising the DNC to higher levels. The crowd is thinning and it is not who we expected in the...

We're all familiar with the Nag Hammadi Library, the texts written by Christians who despised (rightfully so) Yahweh, the OT "god" who acts more like a deranged monarch than a merciful God. Everyone goes to the early church fathers for info on the Telestai (what they called themselves) or Gnostics, a term meant to be insulting. It's like calling them know it all's in modern terms. But I've read most of the NHL, and there is nothing evil at all in there. They quote prophets, love Jesus, have Gospels that aren't in the bible, and basically just despise Yahweh/Yaldaboath who they call the Demiurge. They have Sophia(Wisdom) and some fascinating cosmology but most people think of it as science fiction without realizing angels, demons and fallen...
