When you label someone: “Okay, he is Christian. He is bad or he is good. She is Muslim, and she is good or she is bad.” The matter is decided without looking at the individual. The labels decide. Don’t have fixed attitudes; have flexible awareness. Don’t say this is bad, or this is good. Just say that one has to find out constantly what is good, what is bad. Train the mind to find out, to investigate.
