Do you have a reference to where YHWH tells us not to use reason or evidence? Or is this just you talking?
Hey, I've given you several scriptures!
You don't recognize the OT when you see it?Gnosis isn't just knowledge. The stuff you're spouting here is mystic, chaos, anti-Christ.News flash! “Gnosis” is Greek for knowledge, so yes, I prefer knowledge over ignorance.
I doubt that Paul shared your doctrine.You mean like this?
“But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.” (1 cor 2:7)
Definitely!I will let the readers judge between us who is into thinking and learning.
[QUOTE [I am quoting from the Dead Sea Scrolls written up to 200 B.C. What are you quoting from that makes sense?
You are teaching contrary to anything taught in either Judaism or Christianity. And yes, I will speak out against it.“Tempting”? Since when did studying somebodies interpretation of scripture become a temptation? The fact is that there are many corollaries between the New Testament and the Dead Sea Scrolls. I would think a disciple of Christ would want to learn more about those who first wrote about him.
Your personal feelings have nothing to do with me. I recommend seeing a counselor if you are feeling insecure.
More from Paul:
O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” for by professing it some have swerved from the faith. Grace be with you. 1 Timothy 6:20-21
