Innocent III was seeking to put a stop to the latest "Gnostic heresy", but found it to be entrenched throughout Europe, so he followed the "Cathar crusade" with the creation of the dreaded Inquisition, resulting in countless people being slowly and brutally tortured to death over the next 500 years for even the mere suspicion of heresy. Innocent also reinstated a prohibition against the owning or reading of Bibles by anyone other than clergy, under penalty of death.
Some scholars today claimed that Christianity is more Gnosticism than Judaism and attempt to combine two related, but opposing systems of theology and thought. Christianity isn´t monotheism, but pantheism (meaning all-in-god, Wikipedia).
Christianity and Gnosticism, both evolved from common roots in the vast Hellenistic (Greek) syncretism following Alexander the Great´s Empire. This belief is a by-product of often ignored period between the decline of Greece and the rise of Rome to about 300 AD. This is part of the 300 year gap between Malachi and Matthew.
Col 2:18 Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind.
