I wish they would get rid of that phrase.  The closest thing to a  
Theosophical Movement now is when they server prunes at Olcott.

William Doss McDavid in his book "An Introduction to  Esoteric
Principles: A Study Course"  writes:

...the  modern Theosophical movement owes its very existence to H.P.B. 
and the  Masters, whose faithful agent she claimed to be. It would be 
extremely  unwise to reject the teachings given through her without 
understanding  what those teachings really were in the first place. 

And how can we  acquire this understanding if we do not study her 

We  don't have to blindly accept what she says or take her views as 
the last  word, but at least we should become familiar with those 
views firsthand.  Then we can reject or accept intelligently. 

When the works of other  and later writers who claim to be continuing 
the work begun by H.P.B.  present viewpoints and 'revelations' which 
are at direct variance with the  original lines of teaching, we may 
feel justified in questioning the  source of the newer pronouncements. 

A familiarity with the original  writings, therefore, provides a 
criterion for intelligent  judgment.
