The Strong Defense of Virtue and Truth

Perhaps you have at some time seemed to suffer from the evil thoughts and acts of others because you have allowed a fear of them to abide in your consciousness.

The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Mary Baker Eddy, assures us on pages 234 and 235 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," that "evil thoughts and aims reach no farther and do no more harm than one's belief permits."According to this statement of truth, we can be affected by the wrong thoughts and deeds of others only to the degree that we believe in such errors, and give them a place in our thought. The teachings of Christian Science emphatically deny any power to error, but demonstrate its powerlessness and nothingness. Our Leader continues, "Evil thoughts, lusts, and malicious purposes cannot go forth, like wandering pollen, from one human mind to another, finding unsuspected lodgment, if virtue and truth build a strong defence."
