Is It God or a Demon I Hear? (5 Sites, 27 Hits) 03/13/2003
In the first-century writings of the Ebionite disciples of Jesus, there are dire warnings to believers about being led down the wrong path by the voice of demons impersonating God, Jesus, or an angel. This same warning can be found in the words of Jesus and the Epistles of Paul. To their own spiritual detriment, the modern Christian has ignored and even blatantly violated these cautions. In view of this, we must pose the question: When believers speak in tongues or hear what they believe is the voice of the Lord, is the source Christ...or the Anti-Christ? These early church references will greatly disturb you!

| ||Luciferian Gnosis and Luciferian Witchcraft. Lucifer literally means "Light Bearer," is equated with Venus as the Morning Star, and is the force of enlightenment. Some see parallels between Lucifer and figures in other traditions, including the Gnostic Sophia and/or Christ, the Greek Titan Prometheus, the Sumerian Enki, "Aradia: Gospel of the Witches," and "The Book of Enoch". The Luciferian Gnosis does not equate Lucifer with Satan, which literally means "Adversary."
Gnostics: Heretics or Enlightened Disciples? (2 Sites, 62 Hits) 10/06/2004
| ||Jesus spoke to Pharisees and other legalistic people. He said, "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him." The god of the legalistic Jews was not the God of Jesus. The members of this ring are predominantly Nazirene. They tend to be politically conservative and pro-life, and their writings ramble a lot. They present a form of gnosticism. There is a reason why gnosticism has not been widely embraced, although the Bible promises that God's word will be spread to the world.
Pistis Sophia: Books of the Savior (2 Sites, 50 Hits) 08/24/2004
| ||The Pistis Sophia is a great Gnostic Christian work revealing the inner meaning of the symbols in the traditional New Testament. The work tells that Jesus chose twelve powers, receiving them from the twelve Saviors of the Light-Treasure before He came into the world. When He descended into the world, He cast them as sparks into the wombs of their mothers, that the whole world might be saved. Come, read the articles in this ring to discover why this fact is vital to all spiritual seekers, and what Jesus had to say about it.|
