On Our Theosophical Kindness

Friends, 

Kindness must be in one's heart, much more than in one's outer shell 
or visible personality. 

I would like to extend an invitation to those who believe 
that "nobody can judge or evaluate anyone else", and also to those 
who use this popular but wrong  saying as a shield to justify the 
absence of moral or ethical choices. 

Would these friends  tell us whether they think the New Testament 
Jesus is wrong, or if that Master is arrogant, or he behaves like a 
bigot, as he says the words below? 

In the New Testament, Jesus confronts the process of fašade-building 
and make-believe with these words:  

"How terrible for you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees! You 
hypocrites! You clean the outside of your cup and plate, while the 
inside is full of  what you have obtained by violence and 
selfishness. Blind Pharisee! Clean what is inside the cup first, and 
then the outside will be clean too!"(Mt, 23: 25-26) 

And also: 

"How terrible for you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees! You 
hypocrites! You are like whitewashed
tombs, which look fine on the outside but are full of bones and 
decaying corpses on the inside. In the same
way, on the outside you appear good to everybody, but inside you are 
full of hypocrisy and sins."(Mt, 23:
27-28)

In that departament, there is no need to quote H. P. Blavatsky,  as 
she most often used a similar language with regard to whitewashed 
appearances. 


Best regards,   Carlos.
