By the way, I liked your post very much on journeys...keeping it simple...wanted to add it...but then went on with busy-ness
I guess TFI is "great" on syncretism...here a little there a little...which caught their interest...through avid reader Zerby and her helpers.
The problem you have in labeling something as gnostic is, that much you have on the line of behaviourism of the gnostics stem from the descriptions of their adversaries, namely the Christians...like Irenaeus...
Anyway, there were lots of gnostics apparently who were on the "anti-body-trip"...against carnality...the others were rather the opposite...all seemed to be allowed...
I once hit on the Carpocracians as being really the closest to TF-behaviour...like wife-swapping etc.
Berg was every now and then proud, that some ancient "spirit-helpers" came to "visit" them...
Really great indeed (not)
Many or all TFI-readers have not understood yet, that repeating an argument for the zillion's-time
doesn't make it better or more plausible...Berg's habit of repeating arguments endlessly...until you give in : ( ...mind tired...therefore the costly big prints of TFI
(Berg's stupid argument also, he had to teach a whole generation anew...right...from baking pancakes to whatnot and egg in the coffee...with peanutbutter)
