To Anand: EXCLUSIVE claims of many EXOTERIC Christians
Mar 08, 2009 08:33 AM
Thanks for your recent posting at:
But many Christians, many churches, and many denominations of
Christianity believe that ONLY Christianity is true and that ALL
OTHER religions including Hinduism and Theosophy are
FALSE and inventions of Satan. And many of them believe and teach
and do missionary work insisting that unless people believe these
teachings they are going to go to hell for eternity.
Many Christians believe that one must accept Christ as your lord and
savior and that you CANNOT be saved by any other means. If you are
Jewish and don't believe in the claims about Christ or if you follow
and accept Buddha or Krishna or some other god-man or divinity, etc.,
these kinds of Christians believe again you will NOT be saved and are
going to hell.
Of course such Christians, do NOT believe in reincarnation and much
of what is taught as Theosophy whether it be by Blavatsky, Besant,
Leadbeater, Purucker, Judge or other Theosophical writers.
Certainly these particular Christian "views" or interpretations are
NOT those which the Chohan and Blavatsky would agree with.
Do you Anand hold the views of these exoteric Christians as I have
outlined them above?
I will be commenting later on some of your curious comments in the
posting mentioned above.
In the meantime I hope you will address directly the above issues so
we can see whether you approach them as some Christian believer or as
a Theosophical student.
It seems to me that a Theosophical student would have a much more
INCLUSIVE approach to religion and would read and study widely in all
the religions of the world, ancient and modern, east and west, north
and south. No one religion is superior to any other. See a list of
various religions at <http://religiouslinks.net> .
All these religions are worthy of serious consideration and study.
