In the third chapter of John we find the record of a wonderful conversation, in the course of which Jesus said to Nicodemus: "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God," and, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." These two statements make it quite clear that there is a spiritual state of being which can neither be perceived nor attained unless a man gains an entirely different sense of life than that cognized by the physical senses. Our friend quotes Mrs. Eddy as saying, "God is Life" (Unity of Good, p. 37). It should be understood, however, that the term "Life" as here used means something entirely different from so-called organic animal or vegetable life. Christian Science teaches, on page 492 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," that "God is Mind." This divine Mind is entirely antithetical to mortal mind, named by Paul the "carnal mind," which he tells us "is enmity against God." Christian Scientists classify diseases as errors of mortal mind, because they have learned that disease is the effect produced by so-called mortal mind's fear, ignorance, and sin. Those who can demonstrate Christian Science by healing the sick know that Christian Science and Christ's Christianity are identical. Instead of leaving us "in Pyrrhonic scepticism," Christian Science, rightly understood, leads us to Christ.
