"Our doctrine being the only true one"

>From the "Mahachohan" letter, presumably the most authoritative of 
HPB's Masters: "The doctrine we promulgate being the only true one, 
must, -- supported by such evidence as we are preparing to give 
become ultimately triumphant as every other truth."

There are other such absolute truth claims made by/on behalf of the 
Theosophical Masters scattered throughout the literature; there are 
also denials/contradictions of such claims. Bart, I think you're 
being very win/lose here; don't think BAG is playing the same game 
but he may not recognize the complexity of the situation. Why not 
split the difference and both admit that the message is mixed on the 
subject of authority and truth claims re: the Masters?

Third force,
