>this is Christian history or doctrinal discussion, not theosophy.
When I refer to canonization of some texts such as Revelations and epistle of James, stablished in
the century IV by the first councils of the church I pretended to show that 2 Timoty was not put
under suspicion at that time. I am tried to show that this epistle was not a forgery, because it
was not contested by any canon. Reading Unveiled Isis, chapter <Before Veil> BOOK 1(start
page 71, end 97) page 94 HPB defines theosophy, and says that one of its purposes is
discuss errors committed by Catholic church, in history. So I understand that christian history
is also a matter discussed in theosophical groups. Am I wrong?

This difficulty can be overcome, at least partially, with INTERNET. I already consulted some
sites that follows:
