One Language

In the book of Genesis (chapter 11) we read the story of Babel, which relates that the whole earth spoke a single language until men began to build a tower that would reach to heaven. Then confusion arose among them and their language was confounded so that they could no longer understand each other. As a result, they were dispersed, and their tower remained unfinished.

In other words, when men began to depend upon their own ability to "reach unto heaven," began to turn away from the one God, confusion ensued, as it always must when there are "gods many, and lords many" (I Cor. 8:5). Paul stated the truth, "There is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him."
