Agreed. I actually think that the Orthodox teaching on theosis is rather well organically derived, and think it’s a pity that its not discussed in other groups.

But, the larger issue here is the attempt to redefine traditional religious practices, which have been established and refined through thought and debate by some of the greatest minds in history, into some sort of loosey-goosey spirituality which isn’t really new, but just mimics the old, intellectually bereft heresies of the past.
