Hi Dallas and all of you,
But I don't think you answer my questions and statements. You didn't adresse the issues I made in my previous email quite clearly. To me you just sortof sidestepped instead, and made some comments on the eternal truths etc.
'Biblical' study in the manner as I mentioned it in my previous email - I hope we agree on this are not Theosophy - in the term ancient wisdom teaching of all ages.
But, what are the teachers in a number of theosophical organizations and groups of today doing about it ?
My view is:
They keep continue their silly act of putting the books of Theosophy forward as a kind of 'bible-collection' - and avoid adressing the crucial issues of dead-letter reading and the importance of the "7 keys" - where one of the is about the to Blavatsky very important allegories.
Such a behavoir I consider to be against the idea of Theosophy as Blavatskywas putting it forward.
Should a teacher of Theosophy not seek to avoid this ?
Suflight with anti-dogamtic views...
