Notes

"Regeneration inaugurates this mystical union, morality is the fruit of it. Union with Christ is central for Nevil because it produces a new personality in the very center of the Christian person. This personality is radically different from the old because it flows organically from the life of Christ. Morality concerns the growth and development of this Christian personality...It is the introduction of the life of Christ within the believer that marks regeneration. It is the growth of the life of Christ within the believer that marks morality."[1]

"In Nevin's system all true morality must arise internally from the unified "self" or personality of the person in question. The person acts freely and morally only when his or her individual will is united to the divine will. This union of the divine and human occurs at regeneration when the divine law enters the human will and becomes the active power in all of the self's determinations." [2]


"By adopting these elementary Sufi pratices, the mind can be brought into tune with the spirit of the age--its grossness notwithstanding--and illuminated by the 'light' which is in every one of us; and further, or latent forces for good can be increased, as well as our creative productivity."[3]
