"Who is God, and from where does he come...", is the first time that i know about this story,discovered at Nag Hammadi Egypt in 1945,the catholic-christians church never have told something about this story...why? because is against her own interests.
I recomend this book, u need to be an open mind person....a person who loves to break paradigms, a person who loves the truth-a true searcher,maybe a gnostic can read an love this book,but a fanatic-sheep catholic-christian NO WAY...he/she will get scare or mad!!!.
Excellent book, Edward Otoole and Excellent author!!!
This book also encourages you to rely on your Self that is divine unlikely to our "Creator". It reveals the true position of man and reminds you of what we are able.
We have been being put down for long enough. It's time to unleash The Beast.
Sophia Bestiae is what can be said to be the one investment anyone who's ever had questions about what is portrayed as a "supreme being" or "god" in today's Christian Bible.
According to that tome humans are natural born sinners. All this by god's will. As punishment eternally for the first mistake Adam and Eve made in the garden of Eden. Having listened to a talking snake persuade Eve to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge. A tree planted in that garden by creator god, yet forbidden to be consumed because eating of it would make the first people like unto god. I.E. having knowledge of good and evil. And yet, lacking that initially meant that neither Adam or Eve then possessed the rational intellect to make an informed choice to elect to obey or disobey god's commandment forbidding eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
So how could they obey god when they were created by god to be completely ignorant? Whereas the Devil, as that serpent, not only gained entry into Eden which says a lot for the poor security god enabled to protect his firstborn, but Satan inspired Eve to lose her ignorance and gain an intellect. To remove herself from being a slave, a mindless sheep of god's making, and attain her own intelligence. And thus independence. Learning how to rationally cope in the world an omniscient creator god had created. As part of his plan wherein all things are predestined. All according to scripture.
But because Eve followed her god given destiny, sin was created by god and her status as sinner was ordained as punishment upon her for her god given ignorance. Eating of the fruit of that tree god forbid her to consume. Even though god's all knowing self put it there so that his all knowing preordained destiny for Eve and Adam could be fulfilled.
And sure enough, it is believed every human after them according to "the word" is born a sinner. Because of that one mistake Eve made that god knew she would make.
Humans who take their first breath in this world are born sinners. They are property of the Devil first until they redeem themselves of the sin of being human and seek to be saved from....god's judgment of them.
Twisted! Perverse! And holy writ! It's the stuff that if believed to be absolutely true makes abortion clinics the first church. Because there the potential of that natural born sinner is evacuated from the womb and their soul can then be returned unto heaven unblemished.
Sophia is a book that puts the god of the Bible, the god that makes the Genesis story the first example of his sadistic nature evident, into context.
Humans as that 'sinner' are suppose to renounce the evil of their nature. And yet chapter and verse throughout the entire old testament god is described and demonstrates in himself that he is worse than any of us as the architect that bears all those sins we're suppose to overcome.
Ego, pride, hubris, arrogance, jealousy, hate, murder, savagery, etc... Are all traits Bible god examples as that what is held 'sacred' by countless people who are called sheep, the sacrificial animal of choice for god's ravenous appetite that savors the smell of roasting blood and flesh upon sacrificial altars as described in old testament scripture.
Sophia outs god as evil. It describes, using the Bible itself, what in truth is Judeo-Christianity. The religion of Maltheism. Faith that honors a malevolent deity.
God drowned the entire world! For being the sinners that could only exist because god would rather damn humanity for eternity than forgive the first mistake the first couple made in the garden of Eden. And all that was by God's will.
If you're a christian with questions, or a seeker trying to make sense of the nonsense in the poorly written sadistic fiction that is the Bible, who's scripture seeks to persuade the rational intellect into irrational slavery, this book is for you.
If there is a god does it make sense we the lesser intellect would have to find him? That we'd have to believe in him or else? How would a supreme being need to stroke it's own ego when it is superior to all things that exist? Especially humans. And how is it that we are suppose to save ourselves from our god given nature and overcome that, when god chapter and verse in the Bible is that same thing? And is worshiped for it.
When god is said to be all knowing, everywhere present, eternally powerful, creates all things according to his plan and has predestined humans lives from beginning to end, all according to Bible scripture, what are we doing holding faith we can better ourselves by believing in the Hebrew Zombie demi-god Jesus? Who came to earth to suffer and die so as to give us the opportunity to believe all that was proof god suddenly loved us, after having cursed us to be sinners for generations. And believing, we'd be saved from being what god made us to be the moment we were born until we found Jesus. Who commanded slaves to be obedient unto their masters. While promising they'd be better people if they believed in him once they were dead!
Sadistic torture and belief that is proof god loves us because he sent himself to commit suicide as Jesus so as to save us from himself. After he created those rules himself with the genesis of the whole world and humanity.
The Bible seeks to control the human intellect and conform it from rational thought unto irrational supplication. Thereby making slaves of the believers, who's self-esteem is eroded while their compliance unto a fear paradigm insures leaders in the church and the political realm will lead them all the days of their lives.
"Render unto god that which is god's and unto Caesar that which is Caesar's."
Sophia Bestiae is the real book of salvation.
Read it and you will never consciously agree to be a sheep!
(Sheep. Mindless animals with herd intellects.There's a reason the early scribes used such terms to describe the faithful in their work of fiction that asks the human intellect to accept a supreme being wrote an errant book.)
No critical thinker can ever permit themselves to be a Christian.
It's not to say that intelligent people can not be Christian.
However, it is to say that in order to be a Christian, to accept that Christian myth is true enough to live one's one and only life by and for, they must first set aside the intellect and accept irrational proposals as truth.
When in truth faith precludes fact.
God isn't dead.
Something can't be dead when it never existed in the first place.
Christianity - The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
