well from what i know Orthodox Christianity doesn’t agree with Gnosticism because they often have different views on what happened to Jesus and his teachings. Gnosticism has a more mystical approach to things and orthodox doesn’t like it.
for example: Gnostics believe Jesus survived the Crucifixion and that he wasn’t literally god but he was just like an ascended master.
