Sufilight, you raise some interesting questions.

In light of the words of KH:

It seems to be difficult to be a seeker of Truth if you are wedded
to a particular creed, such as Roman Catholicism. The RC or Jesuit
must always understand his World with respect to the principles of
his order. He tries to develop followers while the Theosophist tries
to develop free and indepedent thinkers. The cold and calculating
mind of the Jesuit compared with the cool, undisturbed mind of the
adept must appear very similar to the uninitiated. The question
consequently becomes: How do you recognize he who is insincere?
How do you react to such people? These are the practical questions
of Universal Brotherhood. Certainly, all is never as it appears.
