Q&A

Do practices of mortification represent a gnostic contempt for the body?

8/4/2011

Question:

Don&#039;t ascetical practices such as fasting represent a sort of Gnostic contempt for the body? I know Paul talks about struggling against &quot;the flesh,&quot; but doesn&#039;t this refer to the sin nature, not the body?<br />
