Guest Post: Understanding the Truth of the Crucifixion by “Colorbas”

Posted on

Hey, folks. Here is the first guest post of 2017. This is by a friend of mine but who wants to remain anonymous through the pen-name “Colorbas”. This one is about the concept of the “abortion” in reference to Demiurge being a malformed aborted fetus which eventually grow up into a blundering “god of the void,” when he stole a portion of Sophia’s power. This connects to the Eucharist, the Gospel of John, and Epiphanius’ […]

Guest Post: A Chant of Exile

Posted on

Hey, folks. So, I agreed to post a poem, belonging to a friend of mine and Gnostic Christian, located in Italy. This poem is by Vala Hiddensun (Vanessa Landi) and I think it’s one of the most stunning pieces of poetry that I had the privilege of laying my eyes on. Valentinus himself, or one of his students, could very well have authored this. It also reminds me of the epitaph of Flavia Sophe. And as […]

Ouranos: Lord of the Dome

Posted on

In a previous post, I discussed about the “Secrets of Saturn” and how Saturn reflects many different aspects of many different religions, esoterica and the Holy Grail mythos. According to the ancient Greek writers such as Hesiod, Ouranos was born from Gaia, the “mother of all living,” much like Eve in Genesis. Others claim Ouranos came from the primeval god Aer or Aethyr. Ouranos is first equated with our terrestrial blue sky and is later […]

False Gods, Divine Charlatans and Hermetic Hustlers (Part 1)

Posted on

Hermetism and Gnosis have always been kissing cousins throughout the centuries. The same can be said with Hermetism’s parallels with the Christian Gospels, particularly the Fourth Gospel, which has many Gnostic themes running throughout. Furthermore, a cursory reading of patristic literature shows that the doctrine of rebirth expounded by Hermes is very similar to the teachings ascribed to Simon Magus, the first-century Gnostic heresiarch, magician, and antichrist-from whose legend, one must add, the later sixteenth century legend of Faustus […]

The Marriage At Cana

Posted on

In the Marriage at Cana episode in the Gospel of John, Jesus and his disciples attend a wedding feast: On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples.3 When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”4 And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My […]

False Gods, Divine Charlatans and Pagan Rapscallions

Posted on

In my first article, I explored how the Church Father theologians like Justin Martyr and Irenaeus, evaluated pagan gods like Aesculapius and Dionysus as well as heretics like Simon Magus, Carpocrates, Mani and of course, the “Sethian” Gnostics themselves and their associations with healings, miracles, charlatanism, demonic fabrications and sorcery. And as it turns out, the many heresiarchs’ magical practices painfully described by the Catholic heresiologists, actually match up well and are virtually identical with […]
