Precepts And Motivations Of The Flesh
In the building of Babel, there is much more being manifested than a city and tower being established. In the few words recorded about this effort, we see the precepts of all flesh. Their motivation was to build a lasting city for a defense against any and all judgments of God. They sought a name to glory in, believing they could save themselves by their fleshly works. This is the false religion of the flesh, which is spread over all the earth. It is the language of confusion, which Christ delivers from by his blood redemption. And therefore, he sends forth his Spirit and gospel to call his people out of that vain hope of the flesh.
