Are we independent thinkers?

Sometimes people can seem to be pressuring us to stop thinking for ourselves—telling us what to believe regarding what we are, what we need, whom we are supposed to like and dislike, when we are supposed to be happy, and even when we are supposed to be sick or hurt!

Of course, there are lots of people we can trust to give us useful advice, but if seeking this advice causes us to check out mentally instead of thinking for ourselves, we can really miss out on learning—about all sorts of subjects. Take prayer, for instance. On the first page of her book on prayer and healing, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy says, “The time for thinkers has come” (p. vii).
