Righto, not for me to define your religion for you. Might have overstepped there.

This is a really weird conversation to be having on this mostly abandoned forum. Thanks for the extra info on gnostics anyway, interesting stuff.

I'm not sure you know what androgynous means? I think you will find that if literalists imagined an androgynous Yahweh they wouldn't have a preconception of whether Jesus was male or female or in-between. I think you mean that the literalists imagine a masculine Yahweh.

But if Yahweh is masculine what about 'Elohim'.

I also don't see why a modern gnostic would confine themselves to the authorised versions of scripture and not consider the jewish scriptures, talmud, koran or apocrypha but then again I think about modern gnostics in the same way as I view modern pagans.

I am aware and use Jewish thinking when appropriate. We are quite close, given that they are not believers in the supernatural.
 
Like with Eden, I use their Original Virtue view to oppose the original Sin that Christians label it, then stupidly praise Adam's sin and say it was necessary.

Sounds like Original Virtue more than Original Sin. Right?

I use Christianity because of my Christian heritage.

I owe them a lot and correcting their vile ways is how I try to pay back.

The bible says that that is the loving thing to do.

Call god whatever you like, but Eve came from an androgynous Adam as far as Christianity is concerned.

Exactly what do you think Androgynous means? Also you were talking about Yahweh and not Adam. But now let me guess you are going to say that as 'Yahweh made Adam in his image' if Adam is androgynous so is Yahweh but frankly you were talking about a different topic.

Also the fact that a woman was crafted out of Adam's rib does not make Adam androgynous, nor parthenogenic, because it was not Adam giving birth but God crafting a being, as he crafted Adam out of the dust. In fact really wasn't it just more dust?

Anyway the more you talk the more I suspect you are cooked.
