Re: Personal God of Christians is true God, Blavatsky was wrong

If we believe in Blavatsky's idea that personal God does not exist, then we will have to reject two important and largest religions, namely Christianity and Hinduism. In addition to that we will also have to reject Judaism and many religions based on devotion. Obviously this is against the idea that all major religions were given by Great Teachers from the White Lodge.
So Blavatsky's opposition to personal God has created much confusion and damage to religions.
If Blavatsky is to be believed then people will have to blame Krishna from claiming to be God and they will have to reject Jesus as well as many religions. Obviously Blavatsky has made blunder in rejecting personal God. For most people on the path of devotion, God is personal. The path of devotion works that way. If Blavatsky is believed then it would be rejecting the path of devotion, which draws billions of people closer to God.
Obviously Blavatsky's rejection of God and personal God are philosophical blunders.

All his devotees had personal relationship with this God, whom they called Krishna. When Jesus spoke, he referred God as Father. Again his devotees had personal relationship with God. If we study different devotional traditions around the world, we find that in most of these traditions, God had personal relationship with devotees. Making God personal is very nature of devotion. This is how the path of devotion works. So Blavatsky's attacks on personal God of Christians is wrong.
