Question: The confusion of tongues spoken resulted from the attempt to build the Tower of ________.
Living in the sin of pride causes individuals and entire communities to turn their back on God. Throughout history God has drawn man to Himself. The Tower of Babel is an example in the scriptures of God humbling human-kind to turn back to Him. The people were aspiring to be God in the creation of their tower. God's intervention doesn't take away our free will. Instead it is the working on His Holy Spirit to bring us into a right relationship with the Lord. With many languages being introduced to mankind at the Tower of Babel it spread people out causing the tower not to be build and ending the momentum of a human-kind belief in equality to God.
Based on Genesis 11:1-9
