"Medusa is that system which - originally pure and beautiful, the Church of God and guardian of the Mysteries - has through corruption and idolatry become 'the hold of every unclean thing,' and mother of a monstrous brood.  And, moreover, like the once lovely face of Medusa, the Doctrine which bore originally the divine impress and reflected the Celestial Wisdom herself (Athena) has - through the fall of the Church - become converted into Dogma so pernicious and so deadly as to blight and destroy the reason of all who come under its control.  And the Perseus of the myth is the true Humanity ....which is gone forth to smite and destroy the corrupt Church and deliver the world from its blighting influence."  The Perfect Way, p.64"

You did not answer the questions I asked. Why Bible is most read book? Why it is most influential book in the world? Why millions of Christians accepted persecution to defend Christianity? Why thousands of people became martyrs while spreading their faith and defending it? Why thousands of people ridicule Blavatsky?
