Unmixing the mix
Human life is an incredibly complex mixture of many things. There is breathtaking beauty in nature, and there is also the fury of hurricanes. At times we can be almost stunned by the magnificence of a person's goodness and the lengths to which he or she will go to help another. And then there are other times when selfishness or brutality goes beyond anything we could have imagined possible.
Even the Bible can be viewed as a mixture. It can be interpreted in so many different ways—ways that show the tendency of thought to order experience according to personal preferences and beliefs. For example, there is an interpretation of Scripture that suggests that God has made mankind into different races and that these races are intended by divine edict to live separately—separately as if there were an impenetrable, although invisible, wall between people. But then we come to portions of the Bible that won't fit into this restrictive view.
