I guess I don't understand Demuirge, Sophia, and the "real God". If you don't believe in this stuff please don't answer. I just want an expanation of this gnostic belief. Im not trying to start a debate. Thanks.

The Demiurge thought the power which his mother gave him was his own, and with it he started creating the physical world. In doing this the Gnostics believed the Demiurge entrapped the Spirit in matter. They viewed the Demiurge as being the Christian God, the creator, basing their belief on the statement, "I am God, and there is no one besides me."
