Give me that ol’ time Gnostic religion
As I have written before, it is apparent that the babbling in the modern charismatic movement has its origins in Gnostic rituals not in the “speaking in tongues” described by St. Paul.
I have just uncovered an interesting tidbit in which the babbling, which by the way, was used to summon “gods” and “angels” (not good ones) could take the form of repetition of a Greek vowel or consonant in the midst of a stream of “praise” directed toward the god (aka devil) addressed. The text which I am examining from the book Platonism and Gnosticism has the following:
“IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH [HHHH O]
And so on.
This sounds like the demonic babble I heard when I would attend praise and worship services as a young man as well as when I would get “prayed over” by healers.
It is no wonder that many of the people I knew in the Charismatic movement have turned out to be degenerates or lost the faith.
