In this episode we’re talking about the 19th and 20th logia of the Gospel of Thomas.
19. Jesus said, “Congratulations to the one who came into being before coming into being.
If you become my disciples and pay attention to my sayings, these stones will serve you.
For there are five trees in Paradise for you; they do not change, summer or winter, and their leaves do not fall. Whoever knows them will not taste death.”
20. The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us what Heaven’s kingdom is like.”
He said to them, “It’s like a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds, but when it falls on prepared soil, it produces a large plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky.”
In this episode the bishops talk to Bishop Craig Williams about his new book, Cave of the Numinous.
In this episode, we talk about divination. What is it? Why do people do it? What should Gnostics know when doing it?
Being a world-hating dualist can be hard work. How should we, as Gnostics, go about our lives in these troubling times? Chris Rooney joins the bishops to discuss this tricky topic.
Tonight our bishops will be discussing the 17th and 18th logia of the Gospel of Thomas. Two for one!
17. Jesus said, “I will give you what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, what no hand has touched, what has not arisen in the human heart.”
18. The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us, how will our end come?”
Jesus said, “Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is.
Congratulations to the one who stands at the beginning: that one will know the end and will not taste death.”
Alan Salmi joins us once again to talk about the phenomenon called “spiritual bypassing” and the danger associated.
Tonight the bishops discuss the 15th logion of the Gospel of Thomas:
15. Jesus said, “When you see one who was not born of woman, fall on your faces and worship. That one is your Father.”
Scott Jones, author of “When The Stars Are Right: Towards An Authentic R’lyehian Spirituality” joins the bishops to talk about Lovecraft and “black gnosis.”

Jesus said to them, “No matter where you are you are to go to James the Just, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.”
