Accomplishments The Gospel of Philip

The truth is, a person’s accomplishments depend on that person’s abilities, and for this reason we refer to accomplishments as abilities. Among such accomplishments are a person’s children, and they come into being from a time of rest.Now, one’s abilities come to expression in what one accomplishes, and rest is clearly found in children. You will find this also applies to the image. These are the people made after the image, who accomplish things through their strength and bring forth children through rest.

[in other words it is not through physical strength that physical children are created in the world thus it is not through intellectual strength that spiritual children are created but it is at a moment of ease (i.e. stop analyzing and let the spirit guide you into all truth)]. (Philip 70)
