Nothing left to do when you know that you've been taken.
Nothing left to do
when you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
when you've got to go on waiting waiting for the miracle to come...
When you've fallen on the highway
and you're lying in the rain,
and they ask you how you're doing
of course you'll say you can't complain --
If you're squeezed for information,
that's when you've got to play it dumb:
You just say you're out there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

In the heart of the Vortex, which turns endlessly in the Abyss, here it floats.

I always love to read what you write, ST. It shows the value of natural wisdom submitted to the wisdom from above, and the beautiful result of such a merger.
I totally agree with you that gnosticism, when meaning spiritual knowledge gained through the receiving of personal revelation, can and does result often in deception, when not submitted to the written Word - the revelation to the prophets and apostles (foundation of the gospel).
If, however, that is not true and people's final destination will be determined by what they believe, then orthodoxy becomes vitally important and gnosticism, while still important, can become a gateway to disaster if not carefully guarded.
Please show us one crusade, one pogrom, one Inquisition, one witchhunt, one murder by oubliette, rack, sword, stake or catherine wheel -- in fact, one atrocity, period, of ANY sort -- which has ever been perpetrated on another...
So one comes to play the whetstone this morning. Let us see how sharp this sword can become in the Lord's own hands!!

You are using the terms orthodoxy and gnosticism for what I would generally refer to as objective Christianity and subjective Christianity respectively. In your post you presented them as opposed forces. I would submit that they are in fact allied, and both entirely necessary.
An ongoing effort to tease apart various historical skirmishes upon the battlefield of that one great Cosmic War: the War for the Definition of Reality.
Some confusion arises because of the different uses of the words "gnostic" and "gnosticism", as well as the words "orthodox" and "orthodoxy". Essentially, both pairs of words can refer either to an established "sect" with a corresponding fixed doctrine, or to a principle. Moriah has...
