National Geographic and the Gospel of Judas Dr. Michael L. Ford 24 April 2006 National Geographic has long been known to prefer every evolutionary myth to the facts of Science and the Bible, even for years after the follies of each “theory” has been disproved. Like America’s supposed newspaper of record its credibility rests only in the minds of the gullible and willfully deceived. The “Graphic’s” particular delusional meanderings in anything related to the anthropological study of man, particularly where the truth of Gospel claims are concerned is well known. And, its nickname of “The National Pornographic” has also long been well deserved. My son in law wanted to make sure I did not miss its latest foray into mass delusion, which aired this past week, called the Gospel of Judas. He wanted my take on the program and was not content with what I already knew about the subject. I spent the time watching a rather pitiful attempt to confuse people with the difference between what is genuinely old and what is genuinely truthful. You see, just because a document is old does not mean that it is either honest or a legitimate expression of accepted early Christian thought. To accomplish their purpose they had to smear the reputation of a good and faithful man of the second century, a Bishop named Irenaeus, who studied under Polycarp, who in turn had been trained by the Apostle John. But the “Graphic” never allows a little matter like truth to stand in its way when the objective is to promote Gnosticism and its attendant heretical works as legitimate Christian thought widely accepted in the early church. In the sense of how they deal with the truth during the showing the Gospel of Judas they are a credit to the ancient Gnostics because they never allowed truth to stand in their way either. In the desire to promote Gnosticism as something Christian and the so-called Gospel of Judas as something legitimate, a basic fact is ignored by the “Graphic” and that is the origins of Gnostic thought is older than Christianity. In fact its forbears in the Egyptian schools were seeking to undermine Judaism before their onslaught on Christianity took place. Something to think on.
