I have to ask about your opinion of Gnosticism?

Hi.

I have sort of looked into Gnosticism here and there and am fascinated. I would like to mention So called Nag Hammadi scriptures, I find them to be of great value.

One of the interesting articles of some of the Gnostic faith is that the Old Testament God Yahweh is seen as a Demiurge, and that he is not the true God, but that there is a True God behind him/us. Now, some say that viewing Yahweh as a Demiurge is oversimplification of the Gnosticism, they have yet deeper understanding where the Demiurge is more of a metaphor/ allegory.

Anyway, what’s yours opinion on Gnosticism?

Thanks
