Blavatsky's apparent opposition to Christianity seems strange. Christianity is, to much extent, consistent with Indian spiritual teachings. If she loved Buddhism so much, why didn't she found Theosophical Society in Buddhist China?
There are many differences between Indian Hinduism and Buddhism. Buddhism is not accepted much in India.

Madame Blavatsky was opposed to the claims of orthodox, literalist

Many of these Christians consider other religions as "false", of the devil, etc. etc.

This kind of Christianity proclaims that unless one believes in Lord Jesus Christ one is going to go to hell for all eternity, etc. etc.

This kind of Christianity teaches that only the Bible is the word of God and that all other religious scriptures are only the words of men and promote false teachings, teachings of paganism, teachings of the devil, etc. etc.

Many of these Christians believe that mankind is only like 6,000 years old and teaches a literal belief in the Garden of Eden, etc. etc.

This in broad outline is what many of the orthodox, literalist churches and Christians believe, etc.

Probably more than 99% of Christinas if they knew what Anand believed in would consider that he is delusional and/or deceived by the false teachings of Theosophy.

Of course, Anand ignores all of this and lives in his own specially created hybrid world of a mix between Christianity and the Leadbeater revelations.
