Evangelical Gnosticism?

"What in the world is gnosticism? I don't have time for such theological and historical philosophies as I am too busy telling people about my unique personal experiences with God and hearing others do the same. Whatever gnosticism is, I am sure it isn't something I'd be interested in or that would be relevant to me." OK, no one actually said that, but surely it captures the ironic sentiment of many. So let's read about the second century movement and see that what evangelicals are lapping up is what used to be called heresy. If you did not get the handout on Gnosticism, pick it up in the bookstore at OBC or email me. It will be discussed on Tuesday, May 20th. This will be our final meeting before a summer break.
