The Theologia and the ‘New Man’

—This is also to be observed. When mention is made of the ‘Old’ and the ‘New’ Man, the matter is to be understood in the manner following. The Old Man is Adam: disobedience, selfness, egotism and the like. But the New Man is Christ and obedience. When we speak of dying, perishing and such things, you must understand this: it is necessary that the Old Man be brought to nothing. And when and where this comes to pass in the divine light, there the New Man is born again. And when it is said that Man must ‘die in himself’ it is as much as saying it is necessary that his self or his egotism should die. Saint Paul says, ‘Put off the Old Man with his works and put on the New Man who is made and formed according to God!’
