The term Gnostic is very amorphous, as Gnostics were Jewish, Christian, and pagans.  Gnosticism’s beginnings and its relationship to Christianity are not well known, due to a lack of literature relating to the first interactions between Christians and Gnostics.  Gnosticism vehemently condemned anti-corporeal attitudes.  Certainly, during the second and third centuries these Gnostics were sufficiently vocal, persuasive, or numerous to warrant a strong rebuttal by the so-called orthodox Christian church writers.  Have you ever heard about Gnostics?
