The Gnostics were often accused of being elitist. When you claim to have secret knowledge that the ordinary Christians don’t have, maybe it’s inevitable. But was that really accurate? The bishops will talk about Gnosticism’s perceived elitism.
The Talk Gnosis crew chats about Gnostic elitism and takes a vast and meandering detour onto the state of the independent church movement.
The Talk Gnosis crew is joined by Bishop William Behun and Deacon John DiGilio, both of the Apostolic Johannite Church, to continue the discussion of prayer. We talk about different methods of prayer, who exactly it might be that we’re praying to, and give some tips on how to start praying more regularly.
Do Gnostics pray? If so, what does it look like and why do we do it?
The Talk Gnosis crew discusses some topics that they didn’t have time to cover in the video show, including:
- The source of scripture
- Gnostic fundamentalism
- The discovery of the Nag Hammadi Library
- the “so-called” Gnostic Scriptures
- Reconstructionist traditions
