I'm finding myself having some difficulties navigating myself in the midst of different traditions and myth in regards of Yaltabaoth.
Within Pistis Sophia, it was stated that the imperfect manifestation of Sophia, Demiurge was the very entity that created the material world.
Addition to that, stated in the Apocryphon of John, this creator was the very creator which Adam the primordial man was modeled after.
This is where I am feeling conflicted, coming from a Christian background. If Yaltabaoth is the God of the Old Testament, wouldn't he be the same entity as YHWH, the deity of the Jews. What I do not understand, is why would a deity keep guiding seers and prophets to prophesy the coming of Christ, when he was a spiteful and envious diety.
With Samael being one of the three names this archon possess, and with Samael's strong association to be the very serpent who lured the primordial couple to know good and evil; where thence after, the very same serpent get threatened by the Demiurge himself, for the atrocity it has committed.
It sounded as if there was one entity who was created by Wisdom but shattered into three separated entities. Which among themselves are often at odds, which would explain the hostility between God and Satan according to the mainstream Christianity.
Is the imperfect projection of Sophia, the bride of Christ, Yaltabaoth the very same as YHWH "I am that I am"?
Was it him, who gave Moses the Torah?
A daunting question I might add would be,
When Christians pray to their Heavenly Father, is the prayer directed towards to Demiurge, or is it directed to the Supreme Being who sent his son to the material world in flesh as Christ?
