Introduction

Tower

The name “Babylon” is derived from the¬† Hebrew root verb: “babel”pronounced-baw-bel. It means:¬†¬†to confuse; to bewilder; to misinterpret; to misconceive; to misunderstand).

The general concept expressed by¬†babel is:¬†to be “incapable” of distinguishing between vaguely differing, even vaguely opposing things. The word balel, itself,¬†¬†is intimately associated with the famous¬†‚ÄúConfusion-Of-Tongues‚Ä̬†narrative found in (Genesis 11:1-9)

The meaning of the name Babylon, in fact, is: “paralyze people’s ability to¬†distinguish¬† between vaguely differing, even vaguely opposing words (things), i.e.¬†“Paralyze People With Confusion of Tongues, in order to gain possession of an entire generation”.

The “Tower (pulpit) of Babel (confusion) is described as a towering (imposing)¬†church (religious institution; denomination) , the head (CEO’s; leadership; principal-command; top-ranking authority)¬†of which¬†reaches “into-the-heavens”.

It is plain to see that all this is metaphoric language for a towering¬†(imposing)¬†Corporate Entity organized and maintained¬† by Melchizedek High-priests, the head (CEO’s; top-leadership; officialdom; First Presidency and Quorum of Twelve Apostles)¬†of which, reaches (amounts to; realizes)¬†“God-like-status”.

The “Tower-of-Babel” was said to have been made of¬†artificial¬†¬†(synthetic; mass-produced; manufactured)¬†“mudbricks”¬†(air-dried mixture of loam, mud, sand and water mixed with a binding material such as rice husks or straw).¬†¬†Babylon’s tower was not¬†built out of¬†natural-stones (pieces of solid-rock formed by nature, quarried and worked into aImage result for assembly-line cartoon specific size and shape for a particular purpose)¬†like Jerusalem’s Temple.

The¬†building-blocks” (basic units from which something is built)¬†that¬† constitute the “Tower” (pulpit) of Babel” (confusion; misrepresentation)¬†were¬†“slapped-together” (created in a quick and careless way) in a systematic¬†“assembly-line” (production-line) fashion.

¬†Discernment” (acumen; perceptiveness; insight; clearsightedness) is a¬†gift¬†(natural ability or talent) to distinguish between “vaguely-different” and sometimes “ambiguously-opposite” things. It is an inherent (hereditary; genetic; inborn; natural) characteristic (attribute) of Israel‚Äôs people, much¬†like their naturally-curly “jet-black” hair, but Israel’s discernent has diminished (ebbed; declined; weakened; abated) because they’ve spent so much time under the influence of Babylon (confusion; misinterpretation).

Israel’s tarriance¬†(temporary stay) in ¬†Babylon (confusion; misinterpretation), has exacted from them aImage result for I'm all mixed up giphy¬†high¬†price (cost).¬† ¬†Currently,¬† Israel’s people have,¬† for the most part, lost their gift of “discernment”¬†(acumen; perceptiveness; insight; clearsightedness), so they’ve been led astray by Salt Lake’s¬†misinterpretations¬†(mix-ups; false-impressions; confusions; delusions; errors).

The loss of discernment doesn’t mean that Israel’s people are “dazed” all the time,¬† as some have concluded, but rather, because they can no longer discern (differentiate;¬† discriminate between¬†“vaguely-different” and sometimes “ambiguously-opposite” things), they are disoriented (off-course; without a reliable sense of direction)¬† &¬†prone (vulnerable)¬†to “accept the leadership of cunning and unscrupulous religious leaders”……a very dangerous thing!

Israel’s people have been¬†beguiled (hoodwinked; gulled) by Mormonism’s¬†unprincipled (cutthroat; Machiavelian; duplicitous; cunning)¬†General Authorities who are¬†¬†“lying-in-wait” (hiding and waiting for Israel’s people with an intent)¬†to defraud¬†(cheat; dupe) them. Israel‚Äôs people are at a huge-disadvantage because they can no longer tell the difference between men/women who are telling the truth and unscrupulous High-Priests who are¬†skillfully (ingeniously; authortatively; cunningly; expertly) lying to them.
