In old Chinese saying, walking dead is used to describe an extreme useless person. I'm a person of no particular use to this world. WalkingDead sounds very right for my current situation.
In the Christian Bible, walking dead is used to describe the generations of godless people and/or the non-believers who are hopelessly ending with the ending of their flesh & blood. After I moved toward gnostic scriptures from Christian studies, many mainstream Christians have been repeatedly reminded me the eternal condemnation of being gnostic. From the mainstream Christianity perspectives, I'm more than qualified to be one of the walking dead.
I would like to use this handle to remind myself and others who might lack spiritual advancement and stuck in the outdated doctrines going nowhere.
It's very heartwarming to have the honor be welcoming into the family.
However, to avoid any misunderstanding about people who read and accept whole or part of gnosticism. I try to clarify some points here. Once the Creed is broken, there is no easy way to generalize a person who crosses the boundaries. Some people only accept a numbers of scriptures such as Gospel of Thomas and others out the Nag Harmmadi Library. Others might accept more. Without knowing the details of who accept of what, the assumptions of people claiming gnostic alike may not be true.
It's livings' jobs to be the defenders of nihilism and it could only done by the living ones. I'm the dead of dead kind. I won't participate in any of the institutions, but, I could not actively against institutions neither. Some institutions and organizations have their own merits. Churches and temples do perform many social functions for the benefits of people in needs.
I deeply appreciate your thoughts. And, sorry to disappoint you.
