Teachings in accordance with our readiness to listen and understand

Life at the school ashram returned to a normal schedule again. In the course of his explanations on Monday, 5 March 1928, the Master revealed this about Jesus’ statements:
If poor God were only to sit in heaven like a thief, then He must be pitied. If Jesus said that God is in heaven, then he was not the Christ. But I know that he was perfect and divine, God-incarnate, and never meant that.
What did Jesus really say? To the multitude he said, “God is in heaven; try to go there,” and to that end he said [to overcome] certain temptations and sufferings.
To his followers he said, “God is everywhere; try to see Him,” and gave explanations to that effect.
To the selected few [close circle of apostles] he said, “God is in me and in you, too,” and actually revealed this to them.
Why did Jesus say different things? Owing to the time and the persons, according to their readiness to listen and understand. What Jesus meant was to leave all and follow him; that means to know him, see him, and experience him.
The teachings that are being followed by Christians are not the real teachings that Christ gave. The priests have altered his words, added to his teachings and spoiled them.
