  • Genesis 11 – Part 1 - Does God Approve Of Racism? Series

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Feb 11, 2010
    based on 6 ratings

    God divided the languages and scattered them all over the world. Now why did the Lord do this? Does God approve of racism? It seems God wanted racial separation, not based on skin colour but on language? Why? God is not a racist! So what is happening here

    Genesis 11 – Part 1 - DOES GOD APPROVE OF RACISM? Sydney has major shopping malls. I mean big and crowded with people. I couldn’t help thinking that as I looked down the floor of Westmead Shopping Centre in Sydney, there within a short space, were over 300 people walking towards me. more

    based on 5 ratings

    If Nimrod had been around today, he would have had action dolls made in his image. He would have had a following of kids all around the world. And I think Nimrod had something to do with the strange happenings of Genesis 11.

    Today the Burj Khalifa skyscraper is the tallest building in the world in downtown Dubai. The tower of Babel was going to be a new urban masterpiece. This would make Babylon a focal point in the ancient world. What are you building?

    Genesis 11 - Part 3 - EXACTLY WHAT IS IT YOU ARE TRYING TO BUILD? Before I came to Sydney I was teaching at a Discipleship Training School in the Whitsundays for YWAM.

  • The Tower Of Babel And The Church

    Contributed by Larry Turner on Jan 29, 2014

    Two groups of people with more in common than we admit.

    I am a big fan of the cartoon script Charlie Brown. I have been since my teenage years. I always seemed to associate myself to poor old Charlie Brown who was forever asking the question “Why me?” In a Peanuts cartoon, Lucy demands that Linus change TV channels and then threatens him more

  • Oops I Tried To Get Over On God Series

    Contributed by Ed Amundson on Jul 5, 2014
    based on 3 ratings

    Today’s Scripture shows us how Nimrod, a type of Antichrist, unified humanity using all its knowledge, science and resources to establish a city. By the way… Nimrod’s leadership over the people in his day was the exact opposite of what God commanded.

    Today is the first Sunday after the 4th of July. On our church FB page I posted the Declaration of Independence with this comment: “Praise The Lord for providing the founding principles of the United States of America in the Bible. #ournationfromGodsinspiration” That one post caused more

  • The Tower Of Babel

    Contributed by John Lowe on May 14, 2014

    The story of the Tower of Babel is a sad description of the breakdown of fellowship, of failure in communication, growing isolation and confusion. It all results from human beings failing to live in dependence on God, becoming proud of their achievements.

    11-12-04 The Tower of Babel Genesis 11:1-11:9 1 At that time all mankind spoke a single language. 2 As the population grew and spread eastward, a plain was discovered in the land of Babylon and was soon thickly more

    Contributed by Jimmy Haile on Feb 22, 2014

    Language barrier separates more people than any wall could have, it is more effective than any national border.

    Genesis 11:1-9-Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.

  • God Pours Out His Spirit

    Contributed by Hans Krause on Oct 19, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    On Pentecost, God reversed the process of division and confusion around the tower of Babel, as he poured out his Spirit. The Spirit gave the disciples words of praise and proclamation to speak in languages that all could understand. How does that Spirit work today in our lives and churches?

    [Sermon preached on Pentecost (Whit Sunday) / 3rd year, ELCF Lectionary] Last Tuesday in our Bible study group, we studied the story about the first Christian Pentecost from Acts 2. It was a refreshing experience to hear someone read some verses in Chinese. Most of us could not understand them, more

  • Words Have Power/ Don’t Babel

    Contributed by Amiri Hooker on Jun 4, 2022

    We all grow as disciples of Jesus Christ, enlarging our understanding of the church and the faith. And then maybe we can overcome Babel by speaking one in Christ on this Pentecost Sunday.

Certainly, there have been connections made between Genesis 11:1-9 and Acts 2:1-21, with people understanding God’s gift of more
