Definition funny of Gnostic:

urbanWhat does Gnosticism mean? Plain and simple…it means rebelling against and breaking free of the conformity set forth to us by religious dogma. That same Dogma that, for centuries, has instilled unbelievable fear and guilt upon the masses. It means dispelling all the fear based untruths about God and our eternal Souls by bringing reasoning and intelligence into the equation Gnosticism has been linked to the New Age movement. This so-called New Age movement isn’t so new. In fact, it is older than time. Gnosticism was around long before the time of Buddha or the time of Jesus, and it came about way before the Old Testament. The whole world believed in it, totally and completely--we have had many lives. So who are we? We are Gnostics--not agnostics. As Gnostics ... We base our path to God on not so much as faith as we do reason. We know that Anything that can be asked can & will be answered. We know there are no mysteries. Believing on faith alone is exhausting. Reason is what we bring you. We know that the reasonable idea is that we keep progressing, that whatever wrongdoings have been done to us, they are ultimately for a reason. Nothing is random or pointless. What you have to realize is that Gnosticism does not care whether you are Lutheran, Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, or Buddhist. Gnosticism is an addition to your existing beliefs…not a replacement for them. The knowlege of Gnosticisim is this... * To Love not fear God * To Get rid of guilt * To Show that through many lifetimes you perfect your soul, then return to the Other Side This is the knowledge that will help you progress faster and not have to come back so many times. If you want to…that’s fine. But I am sure most everyone is weary of it, or they would not be searching. We are tired of the guilt, of the fear, and of laboring through life. We know Life is hard, but we also know it doesn’t mean it cannot be wonderful…free of guilt & fear.

urbanThats a true and official definition of Gnosticsicm.

urbanLiterally, "one who knows." Every religion has its gnostics, but Gnostic with a capital G almost always refers to Christian Gnostics. Beliefs vary widely, but essentially they value personal revelation and mysticism over dogma. Gnostics believe absolute religious truth can be known but it is only revealed towards enlightened humans, and the Gnostics purported to teach secrets that orthodox Christianity did not know. Hence, most Gnostic gospels are titled "The Secret Book of insert name." The more extreme Gnostic theologians theorized that the Earth was created by an imperfect creator, called the Demiruge, who had "spun off" from a higher Father but does not realize it. Jesus was sent by the Father to show humanity the truth. The Cainites went one step further; they believed the Demiurge was evil, and they worshiped as saints all who stood against him in the Bible - Cain, Judas, etc.

urbanThe gnostics were mostly eliminated by Irenaeus and the orthodox movement, but they have seen a resurgence in the 20th century, as more gnostic gospels are discovered and translated.
