Manichaeism

By Megan and Anya

There are two sources of creation that Manicheans believes in: God, who creates good, and Satan, who creates evil. They also had their own form of the bible and regarded the Christian bible as "crude and contaminated attempt at the truth." In regards to the human person, they believed the human spirit came from God, however, the body was an evil creation of the devil. This opposes Christianity because Christians believe that the body is good. This is what Theology of the Body argues. That the body is not evil, hence not created by the devil, but good and created in the image and likeness of God, through which the purpose of our existence on earth is discovered and revealed by our bodies.
