I am uncertain about this ... so I'm asking on meta first. Over on Christianity.SE, I posted this question:
Which for ease of access, I'll just repost below. My question is simple - would it be more appropriate for here (because there may be biblical sources) instead of over there? thanks.
Ex Deo Nascimur,
In Christo Morimur,
Per Spiritum Sanctum Reviviscimus
From God we are born,
In Christ we die,
(and) in (/per) the Holy Spirit we are reborn (revived)
This is an old saying I think is attributed to the Rosicrucians. I'm trying to back track it further as it clearly predates them by at least a millennia.
Any ideas on the origins?
