"Present your bodies a living sacrifice"

In his letter to the Roman church Paul wrote: "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God.... And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Rom. 12:1, 2;

Why did the apostle make this unusual demand? Could it not be that he saw deeply into the spiritual facts of being and recognized that man is much more than a materially organic embodiment? Paul must have understood what Christian Science is unfolding today, namely, that the physical body is not man at all but is a limited, mortally mental counterfeit of man's true identity.
