Gnostic Christianity: 'Monday Morning Musings October 19, 2020'

The incarnation of Jesus–him taking on the totality of what it means to be human-body, soul, and spirit–is a statement about the value of the realm of time and space–the created order. The incarnation has given value to and sanctified ALL of the created order. There are some prevalent strains of Western Protestantism that are more Gnostic in their belief systems than biblical, though they might aggressively deny it. Over-emphasis on the “spirit realm” and defining “spiritual reality” by denigrating or devaluing the material realm, including or mortal bodies, is 100% Gnostic, no matter how much Bible veneer it may have.
