Simon Magus & Peter Debate

Guest post.

I had no idea, till I did the research on this, that Simon Magus was so pivotal to the Church in initiating its struggle against Gnosticism. Simon is the archetypal Gnostic - a mage and miracle worker before the Gnostics devolved into "sects". Notice the typical Gnostic arguments (which are well put). Very helpful to consider this stuff, as our current milieu greatly resembles that of the early Church (minus some of the supernatural stuff, for now).
