Faith Fed By Babylon

FAITH fed by BABYLON

We ALL live in Babylon. It is worldwide. Our faith and our future is both formed and informed by a creation united against, and wilfully independent of its Creator.

Babylon’s unhealthy influence to rebellion permeates our souls, and soaks all our actions. Where we see disobedience, when we live amidst Godless and wondrous beauty we can become the caretakers and gardeners for ‘the hanging gardens of Babylon’. And so neglect the olive grove of Gethsemane, the only garden that offers peace.

As Christians we are unwitting diners at Babylon’s soul-catching feasts.

As Christians we are deceived and become compliant foot-soldiers for Babylon, serving its indulgent agenda ends and missing the cry for self- death that Gethsemane still offers.

Despite its screaming neon lights Babylon is as much the city of confusion and restlessness as Jerusalem is the city of clarity and peace.

Babylon turned Eden into Baghdad. Babylon is in fact the place of desolation, but it deceitfully adorns its disarray as the home of riches.

As Christians we are unwitting diners at Babylon’s soul-catching feasts.

Babylon first teases at true faith then it attempts are to tear away a Christian’s beliefs, and secure destruction of another Christian’s soul.

As in Genesis 11, so too today – Babylon remains the object of God’s judgement because it demands all to be conformed to its ways, thus not being transformed by the Lord.

Don’t get lost – head straight to Jerusalem and don’t be surprised when Babylon’s abuses multiply, for it knows its time is most short.
