    I always hate how gnostic ideas are misrepresented as somehow making excuses for evil. It is not about accepting evil, but rather being willing to see evil for what it is and to try and transmute it into something else.


    I prefer this one:


    The Gnostic Jung
    And the Seven Sermons to the Dead

    I have some books about Jung and Gnosticism. Its an interesting subject. I like Jung and I like Gnosticism.

    The reason I posted this link is because it made me smile. It was funny because I could hear this person preaching from the pulpit about how Jung has been misleading God's true believers, but he does it in such a circumspect way without coming out and saying it. Maybe he was afraid of offending people if he spoke to righteously. Then, he ends with this:

    "In conclusion, to endorse the MBTI is to endorse Jung’s book Psychological Types, since the MBTI proponents consistently say that the MBTI "was developed specifically to carry Carl Jung’s theory of types (1921, 1971) into practical application."(105) Let us seek the Lord in unity as he reveals his heart for us in this matter."

    (Edited because message got cut off for some reason)

    Yes, let us seek the Lord. LOL

    I don't think it is because he fears offending but rather that he wants to use good propaganda.

    All good propaganda will use subtle persuasion so that the reader will come to their own conclusions, this way it hooks into the ego and the reader will cling harder to this opinion than if the writer suggested it outright.

    This is kind of off topic but by chance is @marmatoni formerly known as Marmie Dearest the same person as the OP?

    Anyway Gnosticism has something to do with secret knowledge and I suppose MBTI is related since it delves deep into the psyche, unlocking and unleashing the full potential of our mind power.

    After reading what some of the other members have written, I'm not going to bother reading the article. I've read enough Southern Christian articles in my life time.

    Nope. I have no idea who is marmatoni or Marmie Dearest. I often go by Marmalade. I used to be on Global Chatter back in the day.

    "the validity of the MBTI is at zero because the test is based on a Jungian understanding of the soul which cannot be measured for good or bad."
