The Theosophical teaching that there are perfected men and women existing on earth may sound strange to the orthodox religious person. However, many of the world scriptures contain references to such a reality. For instance, the Old Testament portrays Elijah and Moses as remarkable men wielding extraordinary powers. In the New Testament, St. Paul speaks of "just men made perfect." In Ephesians 4:13, he makes the statement, "Till we come in the unity of faith … unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" which suggests that St. Paul was aware that the attainment of such a state was a possibility for human beings. Furthermore, the Christ has said, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." 1976. 29 minutes.
