“An incorporeal Principle, not to be blasphemously anthropomorphized…”


Thursday 18th July 2013

“Polytheism – once man claims the right of divine interference on his behalf – is logical and consistent with the philosophies of the East, all of which, whether Pantheistic or Deistic, proclaim the ONE an infinite abstraction, an absolute Something which utterly transcends the conception of the finite. Surely such a creed is more philosophical than that religion, whose theology, proclaiming in one place God, a mysterious and even Incomprehensible Being, whom “no man shall see and live” (Exodus, xxxiii. 20), shows him at the same time so human and so petty a God as to concern himself with the breeches of his chosen people, while neglecting to say anything definite about the immortality of their souls, or their survival after death!

[“And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness, from their loins even unto their thighs they shall reach” (Exodus, xxviii. 42, et seq.). GOD a linendraper and a tailor!!]

“Thus, belief in a Host and Hosts of Spiritual entities, dwelling on various planes and spheres in the Universe, in conscious intra-Kosmic Beings, in fact, is logical and reasonable, while belief in an extra-Kosmic God is an absurdity. And if Jehovah, who was so jealous about his Jews and commanded that they should have no other God save himself, was generous enough to bestow upon Pharoah Moses (“See I have made thee a God to Pharoah and Aaron … thy prophet” – Exodus, vii. 7) as the Egyptian monarch’s deity, why should not “Pagans” be allowed the choice of their own Gods? Once we believe in the existence of our Egos, we may well believe in Dhyan Chohans. As Hare has it: “Man is a mixed being made up of a spiritual and of a fleshly body; the angels are pure Spirits, herein nearer to God, only that they are created and finite in all respects, whereas God is infinite and uncreated.” And if God is the latter, then God is not a “Being” but an incorporeal Principle, not to be blasphemously anthropomorphized.”
