I suggest that your definition of 'agnostic' is not universal, and
merely constitutes a pseudo-definition of 'agnosticism' created by the
Christian Church, and not by agnostics themselves.

Sounds a bit dogmatic, and therefore not in alignment with
Theosophical spirit, from what I understand.
As an atheist/agnostic member of the Theosophical Society, I do not
necessarily bind myself to fine points on Theosophical creeds, nor
have I any such obligation. The Theosophical Society freely invited
me into it's membership, despite my atheist/agnostic stance, due to
it's non-dogmatic nature. I was invited into membership by it's
national headquarters' leaders. You seem to be at variance with them.
