I was in a discussion group last night with my father, a minister of over fifty years with seminary level training, and a philosphy professor who has studied theology and is a practicing Christian. They were discusssing the trinity and theologies surrounding it. I never mentioned Gnosis. However; they did. They began discussing Gnostics in a very negative light. Acting as if it were heresy to be Gnostic. My Dad cited the writigs of Augustine and what Augustine said about Gnostics. They discussed a type of Gnosis that I had never heard about on this website,through any of Samael Aun Weor's writings, or any other sold in Glorian's book store. Was Augustine purposely writing propaganda again Gnostics. I know that the Emporer Constantine persecuted Gnostics back when he was establishing the Roman Catholic Church as the official church of Rome. Could all of these things they were discussing be from Constantine's smear campaign? I've heard other seminary trained ministers say thing about Gnosis I've never heard before. Is there some sort of propaganda against Gnosis going on in today's Christian seminaries? Is there another type of Gnosis that I've never heard of before? Is that what they were discussion. I never argued because it is a very selfish and egotistical act. I also knew that I would never change their minds. I see a real challenge for everyone who wants to spread the message in the future. That challenge is dealing with people indoctrinated into the seminaries. It seems that they've heard some fairly wild propaganda about Gnosis. I'm curious as to how to deal with such people. I'm sure the instrutors here have dealt with them in the past. Any thoughts?
