Apocryphote of the Day: 3-6-08

"Until baptism Fate is real, but after it the astrologers are no longer right. It is not only the washing that is liberating, but the knowledge of who we were, and what we have become, where we were or where we were placed, to where we hasten, from what we are redeemed, what birth is and what rebirth."

Theodotus as recorded by Clement of Alexandria (Excerpts of Theodotus 78.1-2). Theodotus was a Valentinian teacher in the east in the mid- to late second century.
