Apocryphote of the Day: 4-30-08

Release yourselves,
and what has bound you will be dissolved.
Save yourselves,
so that your soul may be saved.
The kind Father has sent you the Savior
and has given you strength.

Why are you hesitating?
Seek when you are sought.
When you are invited,
For the time is short.

Do not be led astray.
Many bonds and chastisers surround you.
Flee quickly before death reaches you.
Look at the light!
Flee the darkness!
Do not be led astray to your destruction.

Zostrianos 131. 10-132.5 (early third century Sethian text)

Wow, I love this one...

"Come to your senses, man!"

...if I may be so bold as to paraphrase.
