WHAT IS INFLUENCING US?
One who becomes a student of Christian Science soon learns that he is living in a universe of thought and that his health, his relations with others, his environment, indeed, his full salvation, are dependent upon the mental forces he entertains. Finding God to be the only Mind, as Christian Science reveals, and the source of all true thought, he makes diligent efforts to reject every mental influence which might sway him in thought and action in ways contrary to the Father's will. His understanding that God is one infinite, all-inclusive Mind aids him in demonstrating the unreality—the actual nothingness—of the aggressive forces of evil which might otherwise overwhelm him in their claim to power and control.
Mary Baker Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 113), "He who refuses to be influenced by any but the divine Mind, commits his way to God, and rises superior to suggestions from an evil source."
Christ Jesus was never influenced by the suggestions of the carnal mind, the counterfeit consciousness described in Romans (8:7) as "enmity against God," that is, the opposite of good, for he resisted its evil influence consistently.
