ASV notes on Genesis 11:6-7 and questions to consider

שלום חברי

God said that they are one people, what was it that unifies them? Yes, the language, they spoke the same words, they could understand each other. Is this good or bad, if God is the leader it is good, but the crowd will always try to find smart leaders that convince people, leaders they could trust and listen to.

This makes many stops thinking on their own and follows the few. This is what’s going on today, big unions having big meetings with automatic translation. Today the cities are growing bigger and the unions stronger and they fight for a good life without the true God, they are looking for the broad highway leading to disaster.

Questions to consider 

  1. What unifies people?
  2. What are the dangers we face when the cities grow bigger?
