ADDRESS ON THE FOURTH OF JULY AT PLEASANT VIEW, CONCORD, N. H., BEFORE 2,500 MEMBERS OF THE MOTHER CHURCH, 1897 – 3
Christian Science classifies thought thus: Right thoughts are reality and power; wrong thoughts are unreality and powerless, possessing the nature of dreams. Good thoughts are potent; evil thoughts are impotent, and they should appear thus. Continuing this category, we learn that sick thoughts are unreality and weakness; while healthy thoughts are reality and strength. My proof of these novel propositions is demonstration, whereby any man can satisfy himself of their verity.
Christian Science is not only the acme of Science but the crown of Christianity. It is universal. It appeals to man as man; to the whole and not to a portion; to man physically, as well as spiritually, and to all mankind. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p,252:8-21)
