In the writing of The Mixing of the Seed I learned a great deal about myself, particularly the tendency I have to judge others when I spot the mistakes they have made. With Christianity, this is a very easy thing to do because we have, at the fingertips of our mind, the Law. I realized … More In the Scales of a Just God
