Re: Theos-World Conflicting views allegedly from the same source.

When EL Gardner's pamphlet was published, it did indeed make many serious
students of theosophy inquire into the issues raised in it. Soon a pamphlet
was published defending CWL by some of those who implicitly believed in his
infallibility in regard to the LCC. (I have a copy somewhere and when I
find it I will list the title and signatories).
There are some interesting questions with regard to the LCC issue.
Krishnaji who was to prepared for the World Teacher Role never knew
anything about these details; nor, as far as I know, was ordained as a
minister, bishop or pope in LCC. There is also the fact that while Lord
Maitreya when he came to India as Shri Krishna, did not have have the
apostles as happened when He came as Lord Christ. Why would this style be
repeated as propounded by CWL. Did CWL's prior training in Anglican Church
color his perceptions? BTW, LCC was never popular within the TS(Adyar)
among native Indian members. Those mostly attracted were westerners who
grew up in traditional Christian Church Enviornment.
