My suffering (Mrs. Eddy’s) is from believing other people’s thoughts about me; I say, Mary, it is not other people’s sin, it is your own thought; nothing can MAKE you sin, you do it yourself. There is no prenatal belief that can make you believe it, there is nothing but God and His idea. The devil tempted Jesus; said, come down and I will give you all you see; and the devil had not an acre of ground to give; and has nothing to give you. Jesus did not stop to argue with a lie (argument of error); did not say, now Mr. Devil I will argue with you about it; he said, ‘Get thee behind me, Satan.’ He ‘spake the word and it was done.’ Shut it all out. You do not have to argue; KNOW. KNOW God and His idea, and not argue about sin.  Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course in Divinity and General Collectanea, p.1)
