(Before It's News)

1 Now the whole earth had one language and few words.
2 And as men migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.
3 And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar.
4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”
5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men had built.
6 And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.
7 Come, let us go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.
9 Therefore its name was called Ba’bel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

    What is God’s name? Do you really know? The Bible gives many names for God due to the fact that the Bible was polytheistic “in the beginning”. Read all the ancient writings and see that the book of Genesis was copied from earlier works like the “Epic of Gilgamesh” and others. Whether you like it or not it’s the truth! The Bible for the most part is a plagiarized compilation of many earlier writings. See ancient Sumerian and Egyptian works and follow the trail find the real facts that is of course if you even willing to know whats true. https://seethechrist.com
