The term "angel ideas" beautifully expresses the divinity, the holiness, the spirituality, of God's thoughts as revealed to His children. It indicates the protection, the guidance, and the blessings which God, all-loving Principle, provides for man and the universe. In the Bible and in the writings of Mary Baker Eddy angels, spiritually interpreted, are found to be synonymous with God's messages. His thoughts or ideas, which come to the sincere seeker, bringing him healing of mind and body and solving any problem which may be confronting him.
In her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy explains her understanding of angels under the marginal heading "Thought-angels" (pp. 298, 299). And speaking of the struggle to apprehend immortal truth, she writes (ibid., p. 548), "This is the new birth going on hourly, by which men may entertain angels, the true ideas of God, the spiritual sense of being."
In the study of Christian Science it is significant to note how often Scriptural healings were brought about by a simple declaration of truth or a few authoritative words of command. When viewed in the light of Mrs. Eddy's discovery, these words are found to be the audible attestation of a divine idea, the coming into expression of what is here termed an angel idea.
