Any discussion of the Marcionites should start with the understanding that apart from their belief in The Very First Bible (this first Holy Bible was used by many of the first Christians, not just the Marcionites), their exact dogma and doctrine is largely unknown.
Marcion's books titled, 'Antithesis,' outlined why the deity worshipped by the Hebrews (the people who persecuted and murdered Christ and his Apostles) is not the same as our Christian God as revealed by Jesus. All of the books were hunted down and destroyed by his enemies - the same enemies we now have to rely on for insight into his beliefs (as stated by others who never met him). For an extremely deep theological academic dive into early Christianity and the role played by Marcion, we recommend this book. That said, let us now explore some common questions and misconceptions about the church...
Yes. The Hebrew bible (Old Testament) and the carnal deity portrayed within it, is antithetical to the words and teachings of Jesus Christ - the proof is self-evident. It represents an alien culture and religion diametrically opposed to the God revealed to us through Jesus Christ and The Gospel of the Lord.
