New Thought

A form of philosophy based on the progressive ability of mankind, which its adherents have collected into a more or less definite system, though they deny the applicability of that term. Its fundamental ideas are: New Thought denies all idea of atonement, regarding evil "as only misdirected energy." Its purpose is, through thought, to direct that energy properly. It recognizes no authority save the voice of the soul speaking to each individual, hence each man's actions are determined solely by and for himself.
