The Tower of Babel

Genesis 11:4 says, “4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

“So we can make a name for ourselves.” Some of the Churches today remind me of the Tower of Babel, but instead of God confusing the language, the devil has confused their language. Some where along the way, leaders, teachers, and Pastors wanted to make a name for themselves with their tradition, and religious practices, and forgetting all about God.

If a sinner visited 3 different Churches, I can promise you if he goes and asks, “What must I do to be saved?,” the messages for Salvation will all be different, and include different traditions to be saved. In many ways some Churches have people believing that God is the Police, and if you don’t follow every word in the Bible you will surely die, and you are not saved.

The World was built on the foundation of God’s Word but now there are cracks in the foundation, so the building is falling and being scattered across the entire world in all kinds of shapes and forms.

How did we get so far from, Romans 10:10 says, “ For with the heart a person believes, [f]resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, [resulting in salvation. 11 For the Scripture say, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; 13 for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.”

Nowhere in the above scripture do I see anything about the traditions, or religious practices you see today in some Churches. Now do you see why SOME Churches look like the Tower of Babel?
