christians:what is your view on hermeticism?


  1. The cross I wear was designed by S.L. MacGregor Mathers, founder of the Golden Dawn, I also study Rosicrucianism, an off shoot. Moses would have been familiar with Hermes and probably the Magi and Jesus and the Essenes.

  2. Just checking it out on wikipedia, so I obviously don’t know much about it. But that won’t stop me from giving my opinion!
    Seems interesting, but ultimately false. This answer is at least worth 2 points.

  3. I had to look that up. I don’t think I’ve heard of it before. Someone mentioned Rosicrucians tho. I’ve heard something of them. A secret society? I’m kind of not really …spread too thin to have an opinion. Its one of those things you know…have enough room in the brain for 10 things, that was the 11th one…

  4. I actually think its very interesting because there are quite a few similarities between their beliefs and Christian beliefs.

  5. Dorkmobile, I am doing what you suggested in your most recent question – I’m answering to admit that haven’t the slightest idea as to what you are talking about.
    I read above it is a pagan philosophy – and I scanned the Wikipedia article – it looks interesting, and when I am more awake than I am currently, I would be delighted to read the whole article!

  6. it’s interesting as a ‘curiosity’…i can see how some might be influenced by it, but it does seem to be rather complex-all that mixing of alchemy, white/black magic, astrology and such…and i can see how some, like the gnostics, might be drawn to it. if that’s your bag, have at it…but i find that, in most things, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one…and you can’t get more simple than Christs’s teachings
