Re: The Golden Age
I agree with you OC. But the problem is that once a person adopts the gnostic mindset, it can be really difficult to get out of, because it's like candy for the mind.
For gnostics, or anyone who buys into the "cosmic intelligence" mantra, the idea of a savior, our Lord Jesus Christ, as presented in a Christian context, seems too simplistic and boring.
Consider the great intellectual Christian writers in history, such as Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine, Dostoyevsky, the later writings of Tolstoy. Compared to these writers, it's gnosticism that seems simple, but a gnostic will have a difficult time understanding that.
I hope that this doesn't post twice, since I had a problem sending this.
