Transcription of a “Thought” by R Ballantine, M.A.
Conversion, then, is a step not downward but upward. It is the candle-spirit receiving the light, and so becoming an heir of the higher realm of light. It means for the man a new life—new energy, beauty, radiance, glory. The Christian is a divine man—the highest type of manhood. The non-Christian belongs to a lower plane of being. The divinest instincts within him slumber.
