Not necessarily. K.H.'s view on God is consistent with similar
teaching in "The Secret Doctrine" and "The Key to Theosophy". Perhaps
it was meant to challenge the prevalent rigid, dogmatic and
anthropomorphic concept of God which dominated the western culture
for so many centuries.
Incidentally, Letter 10 (chronologically Letter 88) carries the
following heading: "Notes by K.H. on a "Preliminary Chapter"
headed "God" by Hume, intended to preface an exposition of Occult
Philosophy (abridged)". It was transcribed from a copy in Sinnett's
handwriting. The original letter is not part of the Mahatma Letters'
collection housed in the British Museum in London. The authenticity
of Sinnett's copy was never doubted by serious students of the
Letters for it is consistent with similar teaching in other Letters
in the collection.
