"Every thought"

As a language is not mastered until the student learns to think in that language, so it becomes evident to the student of Christian Science that in order to be able to demonstrate Truth he must have good in all his thoughts; he must think spiritually in working faithfully up to this Christ-standard. He thus has the remedy for every ill always at hand, and when the ideal in this line becomes the rule rather than the exception, instantaneous healing will be usual. St. Paul's admonition about "bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" should often be pondered by Christian Scientists.

Every faithful follower of Mrs. Eddy longs to demonstrate the great truth that Mind is the only medicine which heals,—not only sickness but sin and death; consequently the admonition of our Leader on page 261 of Science and Health to "hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true," becomes an imperative necessity. Through the buoyant, persistent spiritualization of thought he recognizes that to reach even a distant view of the promised "greater works" he needs must have God in all his thoughts, for every act, right or wrong, is but the unfoldment of a thought. How impossible this is from a mortal standpoint at once becomes apparent, if not appalling, and it is right here that the wily serpent lulls to sleep the unwary.
