Oxford English Dictionary defines gnosis as, 'A
knowledge of spiritual mysteries.' From the word gnosis
is derived Gnostic and Gnosticism, the latter a
modern construct referring to one of various eastern sectarians
flourishing during the early Christian era which claimed
to have supernatural knowledge . The term being Koine
Greek has, nonetheless, a much broader application than

Pagans are like this. Unfortunately, as in all religions,
there are some who are not as interested in the spiritual
aspects as they are in gaining and keeping power over
One problem we have is that Paganism is infested with
various types of bullies, intent on creating rifts between
people so that they gain control of the Communities they
deal with. The most common way these people achieve this
is through the spreading of rumours and lies in an effort
to drive targeted people out of the Community and make
those remaining afraid of sharing the same fate if they
take a stand against the bully.
