“Christ is a spirit, substantial, immortal, generated in every soul that desires him with the desire of Love; and the growth of Christ in the human nature is Regeneration.
No instantaneous transformation is possible; it is the slow growth, the serious culture of a lifetime. It is a process, conception, gestation, and birth, infilling and transmuting every atom of flesh into immortal substance.
If “Christ within you the hope of glory” means anything it means immortality for the entire man. He who aspires “to know of the truth of this doctrine” must have the loftiest ideal conceivable of the latent powers and possibilities of humanity.”
The above excerpt came from Freeman Dowd’s book, Regeneration, 1900, p. 94.
