"Are thoughts divine or human?"

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, under the marginal heading, "Anatomy defined" writes, "Are thoughts divine or human? That is the important question. This branch of study is indispensable to the excision of error."Science and Health, p. 462;  Is it not, then, of the greatest importance to each of us that we devote time to this study in order to be more aware of the kind of thoughts we are entertaining in consciousness?

Most people are willing to admit that there is a supreme intelligence governing the universe. Christian Science calls this intelligence, Mind, and recognizes Mind as a synonym for God. Since God is One and All, there can be but one Mind. This Mind, being aware only of its own perfection, could not express an erroneous or limiting thought. It should be obvious, then, that only constructive, helpful, joyous, and healthful thoughts emanate from the one Mind.
