Marsha West gives us a glimpse into neo-Gnosticism, a first century heresy that has taken the church by storm. She writes:
Contemporary Christianity is following “every wind of doctrine” in spite of the fact that Scripture warns about taking this route. Self-professed Christ followers no longer “endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions” (2 Tim. 4:3, ESV). Regrettably, many believers have embraced neo-Gnosticism.
