    Which commandments do you think are superior; Yahweh’s or Gnostic Christianity’s?

    You may use whatever set of commandments you think Yahweh gave. There are a number of renditions.

    As for the Gnostic commandments, I offer the following.

    You shall place no commandments above these unless proven to be morally superior.

    1. You shall value all people as equal before the law. The inequality of outcome is punishment enough of itself.

    2. You shall live by the golden rule and respond with reciprocity of harm or care to what is done to you.

    3. Use Gnosis and put logic and reason and their proofs above faith, which by its nature has no proofs, logic or reason.

    4. You shall leave the environment in a better condition than what is given to you as an inheritance to your next generation.

    5. You shall not impoverish the next generation and live according to the means you produce as their labor and wealth is theirs and not yours to squander.
    Gnostic Christianity and free thinking lost the God wars when the Orthodox Church decimated us and burned most of our scriptures. I think that Gnostic Christians had a superior set of commandments then as well as now. Those commandments were not only meant for seekers after a God but also a guide to secular law. Both secular law and Christianity seemed to ignore the second commandment of equality till our modern era. As a Gnostic Christian, I ask (rhetorically), what took the world so long to catch up to Gnostic Christian thinking and what is Islam and other backwards thinking people waiting for.

    Many have a problem with the 10 commandments given by Yahweh so I thought I would see if there is a consensus of thought on the Gnostic Christian ideology as compared to the Christian ideology. The main complaints I see are that Yahweh’s commandments have created a Christian ideology that denies gays and women equality. I think all souls to be created equal and thus deserving of equal human statue and citizenship.

    Others as seen in these two link have their own views and I would add that I think Yahweh’s no divorce policy, --- which Jesus confirms. --- and Yahweh’s policy of accepting bribes, ransoms or sacrifices (these are all analogue) to alter his usual and moral policy punishing the guilty and not the innocent, --- to the immoral policy of punishing the innocent instead of the guilty, as exemplified by his accepting Jesus as a sacrifice to save sinners whom God himself created to be sinners.





    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Regards

    Gnostic Christianity has no commands, just suggestions. In another forum you offered these as "commandments" which were nothing more then your usual *********, and lies:


    1. You shall place no commandments above these unless proven to be morally superior.
    2. You shall value all people as equal before the law. The inequality of outcome is punishment enough of itself.
    3. You shall live by the golden rule and respond with reciprocity of harm or care to what is done to you.
    4. Use Gnosis and put logic and reason and their proofs above faith, which by its nature has no proofs, logic or reason.
    5. You shall leave the environment in a better condition than what is given to you as an inheritance to your next generation.
    6. You shall not impoverish the next generation and live according to the means you produce as their labor and wealth is theirs and not yours to squander.

    Your reply is irrelevant.

    Do you have the moral sense and intelligence to evaluate the two sets or not?

    You don't have a "set". Your phony question was between that of Christianity, and that of Gnostic Christianity. Until you post a set for Gnostic Christianity other then your own fantasy set there is nothing to compare.

    Get over yourself asshole. Your "religion" sucks just as you do.

    You obviously lack a moral sense if you think a religion with a genocidal son murdering God is above any religion.

    LOL, you obviously lack any sense. Still no commandments from the Gnostic to compare.

    BTW, did not Christ volunteer to die for our sins?

    ....just wondering what would have happened had he not been betrayed by Judas and arrested by the Romans?

    Then prophecy would not have been fulfilled, Jesus would have been declared a fraud, and Christianity would not exist as a true faith.

    ...:)...just as well them Romans and that fella Judas lived up to their part then...that would make them instrumental in the prophetic scheme... if so why are they not revered as much as Christ as they were the agents of God acting on his behalf....if they hadn't carried out their roles then as you say there wouldn't be Christianity?

    Just a bit of fun...;)....nothin else goin on round here other than the banal islamaphobic witterings of cupid stunt

    Just a question, why are not all who followed the commands of God revered as the Son is? As men/women they are since all are equal in the eyes of God. However, Jesus being the Son of God made flesh holds a primary spot that is above that of the average man/woman.

    Seems to be a lot of the "banal", or one could call it venal, mindless, useless, childish, whatever. Does make it kind of hard to discuss a topic when so many lack the skills to do so.
