    I think we all .Is the boat when it comes to the bible. Instead of bickering back and to, accept by faith that every word is true. Nothing in this world matters but the fact that our almighty GOD sent his only begotten SON into this world to die for sinners of which everyone is, because in Genesis when Adam disobeyed GOD it made all sinners. There is still sinners so as GOD'S people we should be

    Gladys: They did have one language until the tower of Babel, where they tried to build a tower to God. God made them not to understand one another there and gave different families different languages and they was made to go into all the world. Each sticking to thier own family which became nations.

    The bible carefully sets forth the generations. Is it so that the line of David can remain pure and to assure that Mary's roots can be traced back to the beginning as clean?

    Chapter 4 verse 8 was Nimrod the sun god that is mentioned that Constatine worship that's how we get Sunday so how did Noah's father Nimrod
  • A disciple
    "And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth." It would be ridiculous to imagine that someone could ever persuade the world to abandon what they have held as sacred as religion for thousands of years; but as Christians, we should know the truth about what is behind all the violence, and the fanatic obsession with anti-Christ globalism. "Pray that you enter not into temptation."
  • Irene123
    " ..... how we fight each other today". That is the result of original sin. Building a tower to reach to heaven; a 'temple' for their idol(s). God told Solomon to build Him a temple; He didn't tell these people to build a temple; you do what God tells you - or you lose.
