    “Smith writes: “In place of an Eschaton which ontologically transcends the confines of this world, the modern Gnostic envisions an End within history, an Eschaton, therefore, which is to be realized within the ontological plane of this visible universe” (238; emphasis added). According to Vatican insider Malachi Martin, the Italian humanists who eventually created speculative Masonry “reconstructed the concept of gnosis, and transferred it to a thoroughly this-worldly plane” (519). ”

    In that case, what we are dealing with is not gnosticism at all, but merely a bastardization of gnosticism or a new pseudo-religion which borrows a few concepts from the ancient gnostics. What you describe in the article is as different from authentic gnosticism as prosperity theology is different from authentic christianity.
