Orson Scott Card, Column: The Gifts of Conference

March 23, 2015

Testimony comes not just from spiritual intervention, but also from experience and reason. We have minds in order to think for ourselves. This does not mean that we refuse to think the same thing that other people think — that would be foolish, to refuse to believe a true thing just because people we don’t think highly of share the same opinion. Rather, thinking for ourselves means that we ask hard questions, search for useful answers, and then test them in the crucible of experience and the light of the Spirit.
