"TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING"

The quotation in the title is taken from the Bible, the entire verse reading (II Cor. 6:17), "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."

Mary Baker Eddy, the beloved Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in her writings counsels her followers to watch their thinking. The above verse also implies this, and we watch our thinking by identifying ourselves only with the truth of being, acknowledging our real selfhood to be spiritual individuality, not material personality. The Bible tells us (Gen. 1:26), "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." If God, Spirit, made man in His image and likeness, then man is not mateiral; he is the embodiment of all the qualities of God.
