Spiritual Transformation

Thousands have turned to Christian Science with the hope of being healed of some specific inharmony; many have come for physical healing after all material means have failed; others have sought refuge from some seemingly crushing sorrow or from a paralyzing fear; and still others have come seeking freedom from the fetters of some beseting sin. All, however, who feel for the first time the liberating power of divine Love, eventually learn that this holy experience is but the beginning of the healing, which will not be complete until full salvation from sin, disease, and death has been attained.

In that very instructive conversation with Nicodemus related in the third chapter of John, Jesus not only indicated the source of all the woes of earth, but he also pointed out the only way to the attainment of the joys of heaven. He said, "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." And when the materially minded Nicodemus failed to understand this statement, Jesus went on and made clear the distinction the real man and the counterfeit, in these words: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." In other words, all the ills and evils of mortal experience are due to a misconception of man's true nature and to ignorance of God; and only by gaining the true understanding of God and man can the supremacy of Spirit be seen and the powerlessness and nothingness of evil be proved.
