RE: The Christian Bible

Which "non-dogmatic" theosophists do NOT keep Bibles?

I keep several editions of the Christian Bible (one in English), plus several Buddhist scriiptures, the Ismamic Qoran, quite a few Jewish religious books, Taoist Scriptures, etc.

M Sufilight-

First you say:

"We, the non-dogmatic theosophists do not keep Bibles."

This strikes me as a misrepresentation.  I'm attending a class at
the Theosophical Society of Wheaton at this moment which expressly
uses biblical quotations in it's written class materials.  Many
theosophists do indeed keep Bibles.  And they are not dogmatic about
it either.

Secondly you say:

"We cull the good we find in each system of thought and in life."

Yet your second statement contradicts your first.  Apparently you do
not cull the good that you find in the Bible, if in fact you do not
keep Bibles.  Rather, you label those who keep Bibles as dogmatic.
