Why do our minds need to be renewed? What went wrong to make this renewal necessary? These are the questions posed by Philip Alley at the commencement of his message. Philip explains the way in which God has created mankind to have a body, a soul and a spirit. God breathed His own spirit into Adam, but at the fall the spirit of man died, or became dormant. Philip illustrates from Scripture the way in which, when we are born again of the Spirit, God restores life to our spirit, that part which communes with God.
