The Tower of Babel

What??? How does the Tower of Babel relate to lockstep marching.

Man's potential is illustrated in the Tower of Babel. When we work together we are able to do impressive things. Pride makes us believe that our potential is an intrinsic attribute inherent in us alone. Yet the truth is something different.

God guides, man responds, and is blessed. Pride says, "oh, now I understand". Man takes the lesson and thinks he knows how to apply it. He labels it. Packages it. And tries to convince everyone he has the answer. This is where the idea of "Biblical Principles" comes from. This is why the "Self Help Christianity" industry exists.

Lockstep Marching? Stay tuned.
