The Independent

By Rev Illuminatus Maximus / March 18, 2004 /

“The Gnostic Friends Network is a virulent anti-Christian outpouring, headlined Jesus Says Love Your Enemies. It takes the Gnostic belief that this world was the work of the Devil and turns it into a charter for Devil-worshipping that has the shrill sensation seeking of a latter-day Aleister Crowley.” ((Stanford, Peter. “The secret world of the…

Baptism of Laughter

By Rev Illuminatus Maximus / November 2, 2002 /

Baptism was an important sacrament for many ancient gnostics, who found in the reflecting waters of the baptismal pool a ready symbol for the illusory surface-existence of life. With baptism, the gnostic initiate penetrates the shimmering mask of the material universe to be submerged in the reality of the pleroma, the invisible, all-enveloping, ever-present and…

By Rev Illuminatus Maximus / May 31, 1998 /

"What a bunch of hogwash!!! To be a Gnostic is to be a brainless idiot. Where did you people come up with this babbling, incoherent rhetoric such as "God was only a mad scientist who raped Eve?" Give me a Break!! Trust me, you people will definitely miss The Rapture." – TODD AND ALLISON HINKLE

Mindless, and grows thin fast

By Rev Illuminatus Maximus / March 4, 1998 /

"Learn to look beyond the surface, gnostic, or the big bad Demiurge will get you (either that, or you will die from excessive stupidity). Of course, the bible (including your pet apocryphal gospels) has NOTHING beyond the surface, so you are probably out of practice… Anyway, my point is that your gnostic BS is entertaining…
