Ephesians 4:17,22-24
17 This I say therefore, and
testify in the Lord, that ye
henceforth walk not as other Gentiles
walk, in the vanity of their mind,
22 That ye put off concerning the
former conversation the old man,
which is corrupt according to the
deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of
your mind;
24 And that ye put on the new man,
which after God is created in
righteousness and true holiness.
Ephesians 2:10
10 For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus unto good
works, which God hath before ordained
that we should walk in them.

***

16 For which cause we faint not;

yet the inward man is renewed day by
day.

***

in Christ Jesus hath made me free

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(Deformity and perfection)
If we were to derive all our conceptions of man from what is
seen between the cradle and the grave, happiness and goodness
would have no abiding-place in man, and the worms would rob him of
the flesh; but Paul writes: "The law of the Spirit of life in
Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."


172:15 Chapter 7: Physiology

Yet wherefore signalize the birth 
Of him ne'er born? 
What can rehearse the glorious worth 
Of his high morn? 

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

(Degrees of development)
If man was first a material being, he must have passed through
all the forms of matter in order to become man. If the material
body is man, he is a portion of matter, or dust. On the contrary,
man is the image and likeness of Spirit; and the belief that there
is Soul in sense or Life in matter obtains in mortals, alias
mortal mind, to which the apostle refers when he says that we must
"put off the old man."

190:21-31 Chapter 7: Physiology

(Human frailty)
The Hebrew bard, swayed by mortal thoughts, thus swept his lyre
with saddening strains on human existence:



As for man, his days are as grass:
As a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;
And the place thereof shall know it no more.


When hope rose higher in the human heart, he sang:



As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness:
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness. . . .


For with Thee is the fountain of life;
In Thy light shall we see light.
