Just What Do You Mean ... BORN
AGAIN?
incapable of ruling himself. Human-devised governments
always have failed to bring world PEACE. Yet man, even
now, seems unwilling to admit that fact. Men are still
trying, in vain, to work and fight for PEACE. And
that
is
where being "born again" comes in.
And that, also, is where being "born again" has been
tragically misunderstood and misrepresented! God's

more than one Person, forming the
ONE Goo)
said, "Let

make man in
OUR

were made of material flesh, but in the form and shape
of God, and with MINDS on a totally different plane than
animal brain. The human family was made so that we
might be able to receive God's Spirit, and become His
children. Animals were NOT so made.
In God's wonderful Plan for working out His PURPOSE
here below, God has allotted the time-period between
Jesus' first coming in human flesh, and His second coming
in power and GLORY, for the calling of
some
