From Christianity to Theosophy

Bro. Wong Weng Tuck, our fellow member, talks about the major theological hurdles a Christian faces when confronted with theosophy. He touches on an updated and unorthodox view of Christianity based on latest field research & biblical interpretations by renowned scholars. Many of these views are now taught in western universities, which are quite different from the theology preached in the churches. Theosophy can then perhaps be more easily assimilated to bible interpretations.

He quotes a few excerpts from Annie Besant & Geoffrey Hodson.
