Thinking for ourselves

“The time for thinkers has come.”

These words written over a hundred years ago by the founder of this magazine, Mary Baker Eddy, in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. vii), signified that Christian Science was not a dogmatic religion, but would awaken and revolutionize thought. 

Yet often, religious practice has not roused, awakened, or revolutionized how we think about God, but has instead closed minds and dulled thought. So we each must consider in what ways we accept various forms of dogma and rote ways of thinking—and how we can be alert to following anything unthinkingly and challenge this tendency in our hearts and minds.
