DOES A BELIEF IN UFOS AND BENEVOLENT EXTRATERRESTRIALS MARK YOU AS A HERETIC BY TODAY'S RELIGIOUS STANDARDS?
COULD GNOSTICISM EVENTUALLY BECOME AS MAINSTREAM AS CONVENTIONAL CHRISTIANITY?
IS THE UFO ABDUCTION PHENOMENON BUT A CONTINUATION OF A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GOD AND MAN?
Most of us have grown up with the idea that Christianity is a matter of attending church and taking part in a community of believers. But there is a form Christianity that takes an entirely different approach, called Gnosticism. For followers of Gnosticism, communion with God is a subjective, individualized experience that involves coming to know God by coming to know one’s self. If you can see arrive at the most primal truths about yourself, then God is waiting there to meet you.
Needless to say, this belief is a classic example of “heresy” in that it differs from nearly all orthodox doctrines. “The Heretic’s UFO Guidebook” offers an analysis of several of the Gnostic scriptures discovered in Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in 1945. But it also goes beyond scriptural analysis and explores the connections between ancient heretical beliefs and the even more ancient UFO phenomenon. These are new ways of seeing the old stories, and no matter what you believe in religious terms, they are nevertheless fascinating to read and ponder.
