One of the Key elements of Gnostic Christianity is a rejection of the Old Testament construction of God. Jesus came to 'Show us the Father', and the Old Testament picture of God is very different to the loving Father that Jesus revealed. Just how different can be seen in the 'Jericho Thought Experiment'. 'The Jericho Thought Experiment' continues on from 'Jephthah's Daughter and the Wrong God'. Be warned: If you take the Bible literally, and you also believe that God is only Good, you may find this thought experiment quite disconcerting.
