Dear Suzanne and other organlearners,

Suzanne, I have exactly the same problem. When I read your thoughts, I saw
between the lines your agony. Your thoughts are wonderful. I wish
everybody would take notice of them. I wonder if they are able to spot
your agony.

I call this 'agreement not to mix' "intellectual apartheid". The
explanation is long and tedious, like to explain what the former Apartheid
in South Africa was. I can do it in this forum if you want me to do it,
but it will be very, very long because I have to create the context in
which to understand it. In my forthcoming book I explain this
"intellectual apartheid", but there I am free to use different techniques
to create the context.

Nevertheless, you are absolutely right. Intellectual apartheid kills all
souls. Look what is happening in South Africa now. The sad thing is that
few here realise that we have to revive all the souls that have been
killed here. Without God's help, this will not be possible.
