Stupid Idea

Another point is that the very idea of a tower reaching into heaven is impossible. It should have been obviously impossible. It should have been viewed as obviously a stupid idea. But it wasn't. This indicates that at this time it may have been possible to fool all of the people all of the time.

How were they all fooled?

The same way it is still done today. You start with something everyone agrees with and pull them in. It works like this:

OK everybody, lets make bricks!

Everybody goes along, saying: Yea, great idea! OK everybody, lets kiln dry the bricks!

Everybody goes along, saying: Yea, great idea! OK everybody, lets use slime for mortar!

Everybody goes along, saying: Yea, great idea! OK everybody, lets use the brick for stones!

Everybody goes along, saying: Yea, great idea! OK everybody, lets make a city!

Everybody goes along, saying: Yea, great idea! OK everybody, lets make a tower!

Everybody goes along, saying: Yea, great idea! OK everybody, lets make the tower reach up to heaven!

Everybody goes along, saying: Yea, great idea! And nobody stops and says 'wait a minute, that's impossible!'

So they are all led astray like sheep.

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; . . . .

So The Tower of Babel remains a monument to man's folly. This is in the natural and the spiritual, since Babel represents religion. And religion is man's folly.

It is man turning away from the tree of life and seeking after the tree of knowledge. It is man falling for false promises of special knowledge that only lead to confusion, pride and strife. And ultimate spiritual death.

Jonah 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
