The world came about through a mistake The Gospel of Philip

The world came about through a mistake The Gospel of Philip 






The world came about through a mistake. For he who created it wanted to create it imperishable and immortal. He fell short of attaining his desire. For the world never was imperishable, nor, for that matter, was he who made the world. For things are not imperishable, but sons are. Nothing will be able to receive imperishability if it does not first become a son. But he who has not the ability to receive, how much more will he be unable to give? The Gospel of Philip 

The system began in a transgression, for he who made it had desired to make it imperishable and immortal. He fell away and did not attain (his) ambition. For there was no imperishability of the system, and there was no imperishability of him who has made the system. For there is no imperishability of things but rather of the Sons, and no one can obtain imperishability except by becoming (a) Son. Yet he who is unable to receive, how much (more) will he be unable to give! (The Annotated Gospel of Philip Dr. Thomas Paterson Brown)

Hypertext interlinear of the Gospel according to Philip


From the Hypertext interlinear of the Gospel of Philip we can see that the word "world" is the Greek word Kosmos  


A kosmos is anything constituted or arranged by what the moderns call "a constitution," or by the force of circumstances; as a kingdom, empire, state, or what is called "world." Each of these, or a system of states, has its course or aeon; so that when the end of the course is arrived at, the abolition or destruction of the particular state of necessity ensues. (The Herald Of The Kingdom And Age To Come, for 1859)

Kosmos, rendered world in this phrase, signifies, that order of things constituted upon the basis of sin in the flesh, and styled the kingdom of this world Rev 11:15, as opposed to the kingdom of God: which is to be established upon the foundation of "the word made flesh" obedient unto death. (Elpis Israel)

The world came about through a mistake [of Adam]

The world came about through a mistake [It is important to understand that the "world" is not the "earth" - the world was created when the individual spirit consciousness of man (in Adam) transgressed the Command (not by deceit as with Eve) which was the “founding of the world” and we know that the “world is at enmity with God” hence anyone who moves in opposition to the Father’s will is of the world]. For he [Adam by error] who created it [the world was created by the errant thoughts (reasoning) of Adam] wanted to create it imperishable and immortal [so although his intentions were good; he had not the understanding or wisdom needed to do this]. He fell short of attaining his desire [The Father Himself falls short of nothing for He is “perfect in all His ways” so this is obviously mankind who fell short by transgressing the Fathers warning. The lure of knowing they might “become as gods” was a bit too attractive to pass up by such a young man]. For the world never was imperishable [the keyword here is “world” as opposed to “earth” do not confuse the two], nor, for that matter, was he who made the world [again this cannot be the Father but is rendered in genesis as “elohim” which can be any individual spirit consciousness in creation whether angel or man]. For things are not imperishable, but sons are [only that which is One with the Father is imperishable and the body itself is just a thing, however the spirit consciousness is not a “thing” yet from a “legal” standpoint anything without life is merely a “thing”]. Nothing will be able to receive imperishability if it does not first become a son. But he who has not the ability to receive [life], how much more will he be unable to give [life]? (Philip 78)
