Scripture Type:Gnostic Acts
Gnosticism is a modern term categorizing a collection of pre-Christian ancient religions whose adherents shunned the material world which they viewed as created by the demiurge; and instead embraced the spiritual world.

Gnostic beliefs that stray from orthodox Christianity include:
the creator as a lower being and not a Supreme Deity;
the belief that all matter is evil and the body is a prison to escape from;
scripture having a deep, hidden meaning whose true message could only be understood through secret wisdom;
and Jesus as a spirit that seemed to be human, leading to a rejection of the incarnation
