“EXCEPT YE BE BORN AGAIN” Christ Jesus
Jesus once answered Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” He didn’t know what Jesus meant by this answer. Do you? Are we to enter in to our mothers’ womb again? Jesus told him he was to be born of the water and of the spirit. How are we to do that?
Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, speaks to this necessity to be born again. In her book Miscellaneous Writings, she states, “The new birth is not the work of a moment. It begins with moments, and goes on with years; moments of surrender to God, of childlike trust and joyful adoption of good; moments of self-abnegation, self-consecration, heaven-born hope, and spiritual love.” (p.15) She then adds, “Only through the sore travail of mortal mind shall soul as sense be satisfied, and man awake in His likeness. What a faith-lighted thought is this! That mortals can lay off the ‘old man,’ until man is found to be the image of the infinite good that we name God, and the fulness of the stature of man in Christ appears.” This is what Jesus is referring to about being born again. Every day we have the joyous opportunity to learn more of His tender, constant care. Father-Mother God is revealing our true nature to us. He is showing us how He created us and how we are able to put off the ‘old man’ with his deeds of hate, discouragement and fear and put on the ‘new man’ in his perfect state of love, health and wholeness as revealed through the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy.
Each day this website posts something attributed to Mrs. Eddy that reveals to us our true nature and directs us in living a more Christian life, dedicated to God and the fulfilling of His kingdom on earth. You will find this under ‘News and Updates’ as well as the ‘Dailies’. ‘Questions and Answers’ address questions we all have concerning the practice of Christian Science. They come from The King James version of the Bible and Science and Health With Key To The Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. ‘Inreach’ is a way for us to bring the Bible into our daily application of His Word. The ‘Morning Meal’ tells how we can join in a five day seminar to learn more about turning to God to meet all of our daily needs.
