    Who wrote the evil part of the tree of knowledge of good and evil if not God?

    And what does your scripture say? Oh wait, you have no scripture. You merely regurgitate ideas and twist them to suit your agenda -- the same thing you're doing here.

    Duh?

    Gnosticism (from Ancient Greek: γνωστικός gnostikos, "having knowledge", from γνῶσις gnōsis, knowledge) is a modern name for a variety of ancient religious ideas and systems, originating in Jewish milieus in the first and second century AD. Based on their readings of the Torah and other Biblical writings,[specify] these systems believed that the material world is created by an emanation of the highest God, trapping the Divine spark within the human body. This Divine spark could be liberated by gnosis.

    The Gnostic ideas and systems flourished in the Mediterranean world in the second century AD, in conjunction with and influenced by the early Christian movements and Middle Platonism. After the Second Century, a decline set in, but Gnosticism persisted throughout the centuries as an undercurrent of western culture, remanifesting with the Renaissance as Western esotericism, taking prominence with modern spirituality. In the Persian Empire, Gnosticism spread as far as China with Manicheism, while Mandaeism is still alive in Iraq.

    A major question in scholarly research is the qualification of Gnosticism, based on the study of its texts, as either an interreligious phenomenon or as an independent religion.

    So you see, gnosticism is not only a thief, it is a kleptomaniac and a hoarder.
    Yes, in a sense.

    As esoteric ecumenists cherry picking the best laws and rules to live by is one of our strengths and why we were so successful till Inquisitions and Christian Holy Wars almost decimated us.

    Christians could not out argue us from a moral and intellectual POV so all they could do, the mental and moral losers, was to kill us.

    Both Christianity and Islam, slave holding ideologies, have basically developed into intolerant, homophobic and misogynous religions. Both religions have grown themselves by the sword instead of good deeds and continue with their immoral ways in spite of secular law showing them the moral ways.

    Jesus said we would know his people by their works and deeds. That means Jesus would not recognize Christians and Muslims as his people, and neither do I. Jesus would call Christianity and Islam abominations.

    Gnostic Christians did in the past, and I am proudly continuing that tradition and honest irrefutable evaluation based on morality.

    So you call christianity a thief when the biggest thief of all, as you have just admitted, is gnosticism.

    Don't you have some secret moral code about hypocrisy?

    Did I not admit that we are esoteric ecumenists. How is that hypocrisy?

    Or is that just another term that you do not know the meaning of?

    Define it for us please.

    You ask a lot of stupid things but do not seem to know a lot.
