They decided to construct their own tower up to the heavens.
We all know how that story goes, don't we?
The Roman Constantians have attempted to build their own tower in Rome
claiming a universal language and religion as the original Tower of Babel .
God reacted to the Tower of Babel
He evidently was against a Universal religion and Language
Gen 11:4 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.
Gen 11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
Gen 11:6 --> 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.
Gen 11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
Gen 11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Gen 11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
Evidently God was against a Universal religion and a universal religion
in Genesis ...
He still is ...when it comes to the tower of Babel in Rome
