SEPARATING THE FALSE SENSES FROM IDENTITY

Separating the mortal, material senses from identity is one step in ridding oneself of evil, and an indispensable step it is. For the material senses comprise mortal existence, and they must not be considered as God-given or actual. Christ Jesus was pointing out this false element of the human mind when he said to Nicodemus (John 3:6), "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." A little later he said, "We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

That this fundamental teaching of Christianity was lost through the inroads of materialism is one of the greatest tragedies of human history. For this loss caused Christians to accept a state of dualism as normal and to attempt to unite unnaturally that which is incapable of being united—physical senses and spiritual senses, which dwell side by side in human consciousness. The result of this attempt has been the delay of humanity's escape from sin, disease, poverty, and death—products of the false, corporeal senses.
