What is B.S. about a man wanting to posses a wife to call his own?

In the Christian heaven, there are no marriages. That is what that text is saying about an imaginary realm populated by fully equal souls.

Androgynous souls, if we are to be created in Yahweh's image. The Jewish, not Christian Yahweh.

It also says that human males have a possession sense that helps makes them do their duty of dying for women and children, should the need arise.

Non-androgynous man, which is what we are, given that Christianity does not recognize the androgynous Yahweh, has decided to not do as Yahweh programmed and share our women, because neither side wanted it.

In the old days, it also meant that if the male of the family died, his neighbors were to absorb what was left into another home, if required.

What problems do you see with those rules to live life by?

Be clear.

DL

Re: About "right wing" vs. "left wing".
LamarkNewAge

It seems that both camps are ignoring the demographics that should be telling you how many you need and when you need them.

Seems both camps are stupid as thy are ignoring timing and that every year should have a given goal.

That could be to stop immigration for some years.

Leave it to the U.S. to always use the stupidest way of controlling the population numbers.

They guess while demographers and their exactness is ignored.

Re: Gnostic What?
Let me state my understanding of your last post.

Your reading comprehension is poor.

What do I call my God?

If you can't comprehend that, I guess we are done.

Thanks for the chat.

DL

The fact that no Gnostic Christian sect ever did what you say I have to defend, ---because you cannot understand the defence I gave of the text, --- shows that you do not see it saying that men's instincts and desires demanded specific wives and did not give credence to sexual universality on Earth. Only in heaven, just as the other Christianity had.

The ancient religions tried to venerate married sex to control populations where recourses were limited. That is why Temple Prostitutes were so important to the church and King's economy.

Temple Prostitutes were thought of as non-specific, in sexual terms.

You want me to defend for that? I can.

I cannot defend what was never tried, because real men and women would not participate.

Re: Does your avatar have to do with the Naassenes?
Phat

It has been a while.

On the real hero of the bible, the serpent/Satan, you likely know that it was the emblem of the priest class of Judaism and it was also used by Moses himself on his staff.

The medical of the day also used the serpent emblem.

In the myth, without Satan, there would be no story, as we would never have gotten out of Eden to reproduce.

Christians sing of Adam's sin being a happy fault and necessary to god's plan, and that make Satan key to the whole story.

That is why Jews se Eden as where man showed Original Virtue. Christianity when with Original Sin.

What do you get from Eden?

A success for man or a failure?

I do not think any Gnostic Christian worships anything or anyone, as that would be idol worship.

We are perpetual seekers and never idol worship.

Jesus was never anointed to Christ
Phat

Why do you give Jesus the title of Christ?

He was never anointed to Christ status.

Prove me wrong.

"What about Cyrus, from 2 Isaiah?"

Jesus was at issue, not Cyrus.

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
Baptism is not anointing to Christ.

I am surprised you would see them as the same.

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
I have been baptised. No one told me I was Christ.

I did not admit that to myself till after my apotheosis.

I first had to make sure I had a Jesus consciousness and understood religion his way.

If we are all Christ, what is the big deal of being called a Christ?

An oil bath is no big deal unless it is in a Rub & Tug.

What does being Christ mean to you?

DL

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
Are you thus saying that Jesus will be acting ethically when he returns and uses the mass murder of Armageddon against humanity?

God can cure just as easily as kill.

I think curing is the moral thing to do.

You?
