From the February 1907 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IN obeying the promptings to think or act wickedly, that appear to spring from within themselves, mortals become victims of the false sense which they entertain of God as having created man upon a sinful basis ; that is, with natural proclivities for evil. This belief, which has been perpetuated throughout the human order of generation, leads them to regard their idiosyncrasies of disposition, defects of character, or faults of temperament as inherent in their individuality or identity.
