Okay, so with no official dogma, there is no basis for argument 
then.  It's just people disagreeing.  Unlike the Christians, who 
have 'GOD' on their side, when they disagree with each other.  In 
other words, I'm not offending 'GOD' if I should disagree with a 
dogmatic Theosophist, the way that I'd be offending 'GOD' if I 
disagreed with an orthodox Christian.  I've had Christians make it 
very clear to me that I'm bound for the hellfire, and even my 
repentance is not good enough, until I should come into agreement 
with Christian fundamentals.
