My point was not to correct your English, which was fine, but rather
to suggest that Theosophists have long been perceived as foolish for
holding to "all religions are one" in a simplistic way. Other
traditions of eclecticism/syncretism face the same problems, e.g.
Cayce and the ARE. More so, the Baha'is who force Gautama into the
pattern of monotheistic lawgiving prophet despite the protests of
"All religions are one" is an admirable perception at the level of
the heart or the third eye: we feel ourselves one with followers of
all religions, we intuitively sense the oneness of humanity and the
cosmos. But at the level of the "eye doctrine" it's folly. That is,
to take the "all one" belief as license for equating different
teachings from different cultures (in a decontextualized manner)
leads into great confusion and anachronism in terms of historical
