    Gnostic Christians the Original Christians

    Namaste,

    Here is a good interview with a Gnostic writer who along with Peter Gandy have written works showing that the original Christians were Gnostic and that they viewed the vision and story of Jesus as an allegory for Spiritual truths such as Enlightenment. http://youtu.be/orPuzjxU9gE

    Re: Gnostic Christians the Original Christians

    I have recently converted to Christianity, so this type of information is all very interesting to me now. Someone knocked on my door and convinced me of the superiority of Jesus Christ. Keep it comming, if we have enough members join us maybe we can baptise this forum to Christian Dharma Forums.

    Hehe, I do not think this will convert people, but it is good information to show that the early Christians were people who focused on Self Realization. It would be a better world if these Christians were the dominant, but unfortunately political power turned the Christ myth into an all or nothing thinking and now is a plague of Earth. Christianity is nothing unique. It is a combination of different Self Realization mystery traditions that were shared amongst the Pagans. Learning about these things allowed me to have closure on letting go of my old beliefs of a 'monotheistic' deity. I am very fortunate to have come across this information. Om Namah Shivaya

    There is already a forum called christian forums, they are missing the dharma but you can go to their forums and teach them the missing piece and convince them to add dharma to their title.

    That leaves 1 Billion minus one more to go.

    Namaste,

    I do notice that Sahasranama has shared this important news on the 1st of April, and I wonder if there is any special reason for that?

    Heh, point taken. Personally I don't like any kind of Christianity, Gnostic or otherwise. Gnostic Christianity is just one step away from Hinduism and one step towards evangelical Christianity (which is the worst kind).

    Re: Gnostic Christians the Original Christians

    Namaste,

    I agree sanjaya my purpose is to just share information concerning the path of Gnostic Christianity, because the literalist christians of today think that their path is something original whereas the gnostics were "orthodox" before the literalist came upon the scene. It also reveals the pagan roots of their doctrines. For me I love the Dharma and Sanatana Dharma is the path for me.
