Importance of a Right Standpoint

So accustomed are mankind to accepting without question the testimony of the physical senses, that many an inquirer, when confronted with the truth revealed in Christian Science, is moved to exclaim like Nicodemus, "How can these things be?"

Recognizing in the mighty works of Jesus the credentials of a prophet, Nicodemus no doubt thought to supplement his store of rabbinical knowledge by inquiring into the Master's teaching. How great was his astonishment, therefore, when our Lord, instead of proceeding to expound some new doctrine, advanced a point of view which upset the basis not alone of Judaic interpretations but of all material rationality,—"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." In other words, the carnal type of thought and material rationale of existence have nothing in common with things spiritual.
