As the WordWeaver explains in the article 'Admiral Richard E. Byrd And The Hollow Earth Theory', the word 'gnosticism' is derived from the Greek word 'gnosis', pronounced gno'-si, which means knowledge. Gnosticism was a belief system embraced by certain early Christian sects, who asserted that Salvation is derived through the obtainment of spiritual knowledge, and the faith to transcend matter, rather than through faith in Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul warned against embracing gnosticism, or false knowledge, but his warning is not clear to most modern Christians, because of the fact that in this one instance in the Scriptures, the word 'science' is substituted for 'knowledge': "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith...." 1 Timothy 6:20-21a, KJV Please notice that Paul specifically says that this science, or false knowledge, is opposed to the true knowledge of Jesus Christ, and that it causes one to err from the faith. How very true this is of modern science and secular humanism; because they too emphasize that man's Salvation comes not through God and the Sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ, but rather through the work of his own hands. By increasing his knowledge, and by improving his science, man believes that he can be his own saviour. This is the deceptive force behind modern science, or 'gnosis'. It is anti-christ...yet it was predicted over 2,500 years ago by the Prophet Daniel: "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Daniel 12:4, KJV For more info, please also read 'Science And Technology: The Forbidden Knowledge?'.
