The Babel Syndrome

Terry James
By Terry James

We are witnessing today powerful movements toward disaster, movements generated by a singular humanistic mindset. It is a luciferian mindset that is suctioning every unregenerate soul in its vortex toward total rebellion against the Creator of all things. The phenomenon, long ago prophesied for the end times, I've cocooned within the term “the Babel Syndrome.”

Man hasn't changed since the original rebellion when Adam disobeyed in the Garden of Eden, bringing the Fall. Man was the same in the post-Flood time of the mighty hunter-leader, Nimrod. Moses chronicled the humanistic corporate thinking of that day:
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do (Genesis 11:3–6).
The fallen minds of earth dwellers remain rebelliously consistent to this day, as witnessed by the incessant drive to return to banding together to kick God out of the process of governance. We can reflect on the U.S. Supreme Court decisions during and around 1963 to ban prayer and Bible reading in public schools. This action, in my view, was primary in setting America on a course of catastrophic ramifications, the fruition of which almost certainly looms just ahead.

John F. Kennedy's election had the press corps and about half the nation giddy with the notion that we were on the edge of a “New Frontier.” That “New Frontier” was taken to mean by the woolly-minded Supreme Court of the day that we had now reached the point of erudition — of sophistication as a people — that Christian influences on America and the world were an atavistic drag on moving into modernity. The concept of the term "New Frontier" (in the justices’ mindset) was nebulous at best, and mind-anesthetizing at worst. “God has to go” was the bottom line.

With the banning of God's influence, supposedly, went America's youth and vitality. The “New Frontier” and any other hope for this much-blessed nation was slain as certainly as was the young president, who died in November of that fatal year on Elm Street in Dallas.

The “Great Society” was instituted, bankrupting the nation, as Lyndon Johnson declared his “War on Poverty.” Vietnam entered the picture, ultimately taking fifty thousand young American lives. The sexual revolution brought rebellious youth movements, hippies, addictions to illicit drugs, defections to Canada. Martin Luther King was murdered in Memphis, engendering tremendous racial strife and rioting. Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in L.A., and the nation was ripped and divided — and remains so to this day, with the schism widening daily.

Roe v. Wade was made law by an upside-down-minded Supreme Court — violating constitutional separation of powers and bringing about infanticide (fifty million babies aborted to this point) that will yet bring God's wrath and judgment beyond anything imaginable. And imagination of mankind is at the heart of “the Babel Syndrome,” as I've coined it. It is the reprobate imagination of today's self-appointed elitist leaders, their collective mindset fueled by sin, whose intentions it is in every discipline and aspect of human endeavor to bring the world together as one. These would accept “We are the World” as the global anthem.

God himself said of that post-antediluvian people under Nimrod:
"...and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do..."
Man would have been able to build that tower to reach into the heavens, God said. They would have made Babel their center of luciferian confusion, to take mankind's hearts and minds far from the Creator. The devil is the author of confusion. The globalist elitists of today are observably leading God's creature called man back to Babel. They have circumvented through language-translation computer technologies the barriers God purposely interjected into the affairs of man, thus to defeat Satan's attempt to usurp God's throne in the earthly sense.

Today's humanists elite continuously look for ways, even if unwittingly, to assist Lucifer in playing God. They seem to want to recreate themselves, booting God out of the entire arena of human activity. Their efforts, although ostensibly offered as intended for eradicating human frailties and problems, put humankind on the very precipice of God's holy judgment. Remember, the Lord said that what man can imagine, he can eventually accomplish. He will not allow rebellion to run its course (read Psalms 2).

The following excerpt paints the picture of this modern-day attempt to wrest control from the hand of God. The writer of the article first says there are only a handful of scientific revolutions that would really change the world. An immortality pill, a time machine, and faster-than-light travel that would allow the stars to be explored in a human lifetime would be on a short list of such change agents. He went on to write:
To my mind, however, the creation of an artificial mind would probably trump all of these — a development that would throw up an array of bewildering and complex moral and philosophical quandaries. Amazingly, it might also be within reach. For while time machines, eternal life potions and Star Trek-style warp drives are as far away as ever, a team of scientists in Switzerland is claiming that a fully-functioning replica of a human brain could be built by 2020.

This isn't just pie-in-the-sky. The Blue Brain project, led by computer genius Henry Markram — who is also the director of the Centre for Neuroscience & Technology and the Brain Mind Institute — has for the past five years been engineering the mammalian brain, the most complex object known in the Universe, using some of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.

And last month, Professor Markram claimed, at a conference in Oxford, that he plans to build an electronic human brain "within ten years."

If he is right, nothing will be the same again...

Yet, if the Blue Brain project succeeds, in a few decades — perhaps sooner — we will be looking at the creation of a new intelligent life form on earth. And the ethical dilemmas we face when it comes to experimenting on animals in the name of science will pale into insignificance when faced with the potential torments of our new machine mind.

“The Babel Syndrome” afflicts everyone alive on the planet today. We see it in daily headlines, with the movement toward one world government, one world economy, one world religion, and on a myriad of other fronts. It's perhaps only a matter of a short time until a satanically inspired, Nimrod-like leader imagines to complete the tower — in type, at least — like the attempted construction of that edifice of antiquity. The results will be the same. God will intervene with judgment. This time, however, the changes brought forth on planet earth will be God's change, not the decimating changes wrought by fallen mankind.
