"MAN'S REFUGE IS IN SPIRITUALITY"

Paul said (Rom. 8:6), "To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." This verse contains a stern warning of the destructive effect on health and happiness of materiality, passion, or lust; and of the deadening, darkening sense which hatred brings. But here is also the promise that turning to God, or directing thought toward spiritual things, brings life and harmony.

This verse in Romans points clearly to the fact, made plain also in the teachings of Christian Science, that our experience is largely determined by our thinking. We are well aware that hatred or criticism would stop our progress and blind us to spiritual things. Paul learned this from experience. He also knew how immediate can be the change from darkness to light when we change our outlook.
