    While the "under God" part in the Pledge is a more recent addition, there have been a few examples in the past that leaned toward the same idea. The fourth verse to the Star-Spangled Banner goes...

  3. Re: Anyone know a good Gnostic Christian community?

    Re: Sex Ritual -- the Controversy!

    I never really got into sex magick, even as a passing interest. I will generally have interest in most types of alternative theology and ritual. For some reason, sex magick is one where I have zero...

  10. Re: Guys, I have a serious problem....

    As I suspected, he's a shit bag and one of the worst breeds. He's likely insecure on the inside so he attempts to dominate and lord his power over those weaker than him. "Behold, female. Were I to...

    The video has been created and can be viewed here. FYI, it's a Gnostic mass so there's nudity and stuff.

  12. Re: Christianity and a Return to the Early Church

    Interesting. So you equate early Christianity as the time before there was a codified liturgy, temple/church worship, and church canonical law? How do you reconcile this with the fact that Judaism...

    As a police officer, I would recommend that you run to the hills and don't look back. He's beginning the cycle of abuse. What you're in is called the tension-building phase. He's attempting to...

    Re: The Divinity of Christ

    Absolutely. In apostolic Christianity, that's precisely the penultimate goal. It's called theosis in the East and deification in the West. It is summed up by the famous quote from Saint Athansius...
  15. Re: Christianity and a Return to the Early Church

    I've had issues with this. I looked for a long time for a religion that was gender friendly and had either a nice balance or an equal tension between these aspects. This is why I can't be...

    Re: Pre-Judaism polytheism?

    There was a web page dedicated to Canaanite religion but I think the organization is either defunct or has moved to something else.
