if i could simply sum up the gist of the Nag Hammadi texts it would this physical world we live in as something of an illusion created to blind us from the truth of what we actually are and where we actually came from...completely turns upside down the Catholic doctrine and Judas doesn't seem as bad as he's made out to be

being a success in this world as far as material goods and fame go isn't seen in high regard to the authors of nag hammadi, actually the opposite because it entangles others into the illusion of this world
