"THE NEW BIRTH BEGUN IN CHRISTIAN SCIENCE"

Countless thousands have pondered Christ Jesus' statement (John 3:3), "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." It was not, however, until Mary Baker Eddy discovered Christian Science and gave to the world her revelation in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" that the light of spiritual understanding was cast upon this as well as other Biblical passages.

In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy tells us (p. 475), "Man is not matter; he is not made up of brain, blood, bones, and other material elements." She states further, "Man is idea, the image, of Love; he is not physique." Thus we can see that Jesus did not mean that the physical man, made of flesh, blood, and bones, must be born again, but that the concept and understanding of man as the perfect and eternal idea of Love, of God, must be born in consciousness before we can see the kingdom of God.
