Are the Stone age Gods more believable?
I got to pick a spot on the timeline to answer this question.
I will use the Rig Veda, most will agree going back to 12,000 years ago, and some say 32,000 years ago.
I would have to say Yes.
Reason of thought.
A. In the history of mankind Christianity will be known as terrible religion.
B. And as a religion of the uneducated and third world.
C. You can go to a few spots of the world and the Vedic religion is still in operation in evolved forms.
Christianity is on it way out of America right now. It has been taken over by smaller groups that say they are Christian but are they really a force with the power of a major religion? Or are they there filling the vacuum left by the organized church? Are the kids today following the religious paths of the parents?
Fifteen years ago there was a huge Christian movement in America. Now it is going the other way.
First, you have to establish whether the Gnostic Jesus existed, and if his knowledge of God was accurate.
Gnostic Jesus is found in the Quran and in the bible as well the Nag Hammadi Scrolls.
Examples from the bible.
Paul’s Jesus; “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Gnostic Jesus; “I am the knowledge of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk not knowing, but will have the knowledge of life.”
Paul’s Jesus; Those who are enlightened will understand what I’m saying.” Simon Peter asked him, “When you have departed from us, who will give us Light?”
Find the light inside, and share this light with the world;
Gnostic Jesus; Those who learn knowledge will understand what I’m saying.” Simon Peter asked him, “When you have departed from us, who will give us knowledge?”
Find the knowledge inside, and share this knowledge with the world;
Just a couple quick examples. You have to finish the translation into Gnostic form.
I have had arguments with my Christian friends about this and they insist that it really means a ray of light.
