Playing Poker with Constantine and the "Christian Poker Association"

Exploring the analogy of the history of the "Christian Poker Association"

The analogy is being drawn between, on the one hand the authorship and the preservation of the canonical books of the new testament (here CPA playing cards) by the historical associations of early Christians (here the early "Christian Poker Association" - CPA), and on the other hand the authorship and the preservation of the non canonical books of the new testament - e.g. "Gnostic Gospels & Acts" (here GPS playing cards) by the historical associations of the early Gnostics (here the early "Gnostic Poker Systems" - GPS).
In these articles, by the term "Gnostics", we refer to the authors of the "Gnostic Gospels", or rather the "Gnostic Aces" and "Gnostic Kings" that recent archaeological discoveries are highlighting.

The christians revered their playing cards and their game of poker, as did the gnostics. What does the evidence tell us about these religious books, "the playing cards" and the players of the CPA and the GPS, and the natures of their games of poker in antiquity?

The data underlying the analogies is available here:
