The most famous, popular and read book in the history of the world is without a doubt, the bible. The word Bible itself derives from Greek biblion, which means "book." Many people have died or have been killed for challenging the stories spoken about in this book like we are doing today on this program.
33rd Degree Masonic philosopher Manly P. Hall had written, "Although the Ante-Nicene Fathers were aware of the inner mysteries of the Christian faith, a rising orthodoxy was content to disseminate the most literal possible explanations of the Christian mysteries. This is largely responsible for modern sectarianism."
I thank the good Lord, the powers that be, and the many martyrs who have gone before us for being able to speak on this subject so freely today without being persecuted or murdered for our words. As a human race, we have come so far and we must not let those who spread hate and dissension over religion and race contaminate the evolution of our species.
In this episode of the Gnostic Warrior, I speak with biblical scholar and one of America's most prominent Christ-myth scholars, author Robert M. Price. Robert is also known as the Bible Geek. He has written such books as The Case Against The Case For Christ, and Evolving out of Eden, where he discusses how Christian responses to evolution and their attempts to deny the fact of evolution or incorporate it into their faith.
In this podcast Robert and I discuss the hidden gnostic secrets of the bible and if the first true early Christians were really just Gnostics. We also talk about the Apocalypse of Saint John that is really a secret Gnostic masterpiece.
He tells us his opinion if the bible should be taken literally or is there hidden messages and allegories contained in the scriptures. Who were the Jews and Gentiles? Robert gives us his opinion if many of the stories were didactic tales meant to keep us reverent and obedient.
