IMO this idea is nonsense. ÂBlavatsky categorically stated that the Christos was a principle Âall men could follow regardless of race, religion or creed. ÂAt no point didd she state that the Nazarene, Âif he lived, was Âa messianic saviour for universal christianity. ÂYou are using this idea to misconstrue the teaching and to justify your claim that Blavatsky wanted christianity to be the universal religion of the world. ÂUtter falsehood.
She declares nothing about finding christ within christianity. ÂYou are using this simply as a means to christianise theosophy by lying to new enquirers. Â
