If unity of people is based on language or religion or any such external factors it works against the plan of God.But unity on the basis of faith in God and His holy word it exalts God,not man.Faith in fact humbles man.It does not fill him with pride.

This is just the beginning of their undertakings. From now on anything that they scheme to do shall no longer be impossible for them. Come; let us go down and confuse their language so that they should not understand each others speech.

I belive that Genesis 11:6 is explaining the 3 powers that God gave all mankind. The Power of Unity, The power of submission and the power of speaking one language. Then God came down and changed one of these three powers and it all fell apart. UNITY - They were all United working for one goal. SUBMISSION - They were all submitting theyselves one to the other. SAME LANGUAGE - They could understand each other. The good new is that Good people can make this happen today. The bad news is that the bad people can make this happen today. Look around the world and see if you don't see these powers at work. That's just my opion.

Wesley's notes says," ...These children of men, if thus incorporated, will swallow up the little remnant of God's children..." What is this supposed to mean? I am reading a definite undertone hear....everyone has come out of Noah, from his children. They were all set upon with Gods promise. Please someone explain what that person was trying to say. It was completly irrelevent
