“For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.” – 2 John 7
It’s interesting today how so many unbelievers will cite gnostic gospels to try and make their case against Christianity, and yet within the scriptures themselves, and more specifically coming from the letter of 2 John to “the elect lady and her children” (2 John 1), this idea of gnosticism was fought against from the very foundation of Christianity, just a few years after Christ had ascended back into heaven. Quoting from gnostic gospels is just futile because the problem was already addressed before the gnostic gospels were even written, specifically in the verse I quoted above (amongst other places in John’s letters). If people are going to attempt to thwart Christianity, they are going to have to find something significant within the scriptures themselves that can prove their case. And yet men have tried for centuries to find something that can turn Christianity on its head, and yet nothing has been found. They will need to find something significant with the Apostle’s themselves or Jesus, and it simply cannot be found. People will always try and twist scriptures, or make weak cases based on either false or shady evidence that can easily be disproved. People have thought to have made breakthroughs in their attempts disprove Christianity, and the will either get frustrated and quit, make false claims against it that are later disproven, or they will believe in Christ. Christianity gives you no room to sit on the fence concerning it. Either the claims Christ made are absolutely true, or they are totally false and our whole confession is a fraud. But if you’re going to try and bring Christianity down, please use something other than the gnostic gospels, because they have already been defended against in the scriptures themselves.
