Feminism’s denial of sexual differences, increasing distrust of sexuality, and hatred of reproduction all resemble Gnostic attitudes.

    This is a bit off topic, but still part of the same cloth. From the link given in the OP:

    “St. Irenaeus successfully refuted Gnostic philosophies in the second and third centuries, including a view that only Jesus’ spirit rose from the dead.”

    The argument that Jesus’ body also arose from the grave has always intrigued me. Could the body of the 12-year-old Jesus, found by his parents in the Temple, disappear and reappear at will? Could the body of Jesus, post-resurrection, disappear and reappear at will?

    That is, was the body that came out of the grave the same body that went into it?

    Not trying to start a discussion. Just making the point that some of these issues bear more scrutiny than the average man cares to give. And, therefore, the “truth” remains elusive. And always will. The truth is there. It just hasn’t been discovered by as many people as would like to claim that it has been.

    Then there is the statement by Jesus that, unless one becomes as a little child, they will not see heaven. What capacity for knowing the absolute truth of complex things do children have? Jesus seems to imply that knowledge of the absolute truth of complex things is not a requirement for entrance to heaven. Only the things that a child is capable of knowing.

    Which begs the question, if one gets it “right” in believing what God requires for salvation (without defining what that is, but something a child can grasp), does it matter if the rest of what one thinks / believes is outside of the mainstream (do we think we will see any “Gnostics” in heaven?)

    Rhetorical questions all. Just fodder for thought.
