Re: Theosophy: Terms & Phrases

Rich: First of all, you use them differently, and second of all, you have
conveniently left out the more Christian terms you have used, including "Son
of God" and most especially "God's Plan." HPB never uses those terms/ideas,
nor do the Mahatmas, nor William Q. Judge, nor Olcott, etc. This is a
Christianizing of Theosophy, which is fine for a personal preference, but
does not represent Theosophical tradition as it was given by the Masters.

Patrick: The concepts are the same.
"Son of God" = Krishna, Christos, 2nd aspect of Diety...etc.
"God's Plan." = much described in the Secret Doctrine.
Theosophy is completely inclusive of all the teachings of Jesus.
Christian phraseology works as well as any.
