Today, focus is upon the introduction by GOD of social conflict at Babel through the divine alteration of human communication and language performed to bring about the scattering of mankind to fill the earth.  Only through the operations of Adamic sin did the new patterns of affiliation and association become the source for continuing conflict, distrust, division, fear, hostility, insecurity, and suspicion.  Thus, topics considered include divine continuity, diversity as a device to compensate for lack of change by and within GOD, and mankind as a vessel for divine law.  Also, in view are counterfeit peace, eternal purpose, and the oneness of mankind.  There must be a peculiar separation of the created from the Creator both to establish the fullness and integrity of the living as independent beings as well as to maintain distance vital for the divine exercise of authority, preeminence, and sovereignty.  For men to live in heaven, and for GOD to live upon the earth, multiple sacred operations must be completed that establish a “new creation.”  GOD must permanently alter death, duration, existence, judgment, sacred law, life, time and space.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

Christians: Why did God confuse people’s tongue and scatter them to different parts of the world if He knew…?

Things like like racism and cultural bias would be issues? Hello- I am a Born Again Christian and I am curious about this. The Bible says god knows everything. The reason for there being different cultures, languages and nationalities/ethnicities is because of what happened with the Tower of Babel. There was a group of people in the Bible who were in a desert somewhere, who were busy trying to build the Tower of Babel to reach Heaven. God saw this and was angry- He struck the tower down and spread the people out to various parts of the world and confused their tongues. Over time people adapted to the parts of the world they were in. Okay- this being said, why did God do this if He knew there would be dissension among and between certain groups of people? Things like racism and cultural bias goes back to Bible times- Moses was criticized for marrying a Cush women, i.e., and there were nations at war with each other in the Bible. Some of the nations were at war over CULTURAL issues. God wants there to be peace- He doesn’t want people fighting. People fight if they have to. Please help- thank you.

Update: The Bible says God knows everything – fixed.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female:  for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.  And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.  (Galatians 3:  26-29, King James Version, KJV)

“JG”, among Christian believers, no one is privileged to “have all the answers,” and so the process of participating within the new creation is one of sharing sacred knowledge, prophecy, revelation, and personal testimony.  Mature Christians generally agree that the Creator, who is spirit, is immortal, immutable, incorruptible, and unchanging.  As an accurate and legitimate representation of the character, nature, and substance of divinity, all Creation is marked by oneness without sameness; and diversity appears as an important expression of divine intent that establishes freshness and newness while avoiding change.  The varieties among roses, tulips, and trees number in the thousands, as do the created beings and living creatures.

The focus upon sacred purpose requires a different perspective than that for human affairs centering in things carnal, material, and social.  Thus, the holy writings provide a divine “point of view” showing the active presence of GOD within thousands of events, from thousands of lives, over the course of thousands of years.  Even the feelings, prayers and thoughts of others are made open to us.  That this has been helpful to grant us understanding also is shown in your recognition that such errors as cultural bias, ethnic arrogance, discrimination, persecution, prejudice, and racism are not in accordance with divine law, with sacred process, or with eternal purpose.

Sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, the Law Giver, and the divine order established through sacred law.  By grace, Noah and his family were chosen as vessels to contain and preserve the spirit within divine law.  The end (i.e.,) intent and purpose of the law is existence and life, allowing us to say, for those sharing eternal life there can be no “end” of the law.  Those who followed the flood of Noah as his descendants and the population of the earth failed to restore and correctly continue in the original commandments of GOD that most simply proclaimed the divine intent:  Be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth.  Mankind’s goal to build a tower to heaven—that would be safety against the next flood, one that GOD denied would ever happen—would never allow the earth be overspread by the living.  Like thieves and murderers in a gang relationship, at Babel their agreement and being at peace was a conspiracy against GOD, and a consensus to do wrong.  The iniquity, sin and transgression there, then, is no less than the original error of Adam and Eve:  Their doubt, fear, and skepticism expressed no faith, respect, or trust in GOD.  Consider how some of this is stated using language from the Bible:

(1.)   James 4:  1-3, King James Version (KJV):  1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?  2 Ye lust, and have not:  ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain:  ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.  3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

(2.)  Galatians 5:  16-18, KJV:  16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.  17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh:  and these are contrary the one to the other:  so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.  18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

(3.)  Hebrews 4:  1-2, KJV:  1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.  2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them:  but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (4.)  Romans 10:  2-4, KJV:  2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.  4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
