Gnostic Gospels

In 1945, 52 texts were discovered at Nag Hammali in Upper Egypt. These cryptic ancient papyrus manuscripts were hidden to avoid destruction by the Orthodox Christians. Gnostic Christian monks hid them sometime between 120-400 A.D. The heretical texts criticize key Orthodox Christian beliefs —-> the virgin birth,  divinity of Christ, and resurrection of Christ. These views were profoundly dangerous challenges to the very survival of the Orthodox faith. There was originally high interest in the Gnostic views, but over time Orthodox Christians were able to violently crush those views. The Gnostic worldview was mostly lost until the 52 texts were found in 1945. In its place has been the more fundamentalist supernaturalistic worldview  <—->  a worldview having a huge impact on current Christian theological fantasy dogma.
