The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have
begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for
them." Genesis 11:6 (NIV)
I believe that there’s a parallel between the Tower of Babel and our own generation. There was one language and society was progressing at an amazing rate -"nothing they plan to do was impossible". God’s confusing of the language was intended to slow things down. Today, we are increasingly a global community with a common language. Look how rapidly things are changing, growing, progressing – communications, technology, cloning, genetics – and with it grows humanity’s pride, arrogance and selfishness.
