"So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city," Genesis 11:8.
Roman Catholicism is at heart, a comparatively modern manifestation of a very old pagan religion. That religion is Babylonianism.
As this age draws to a close, we are going too see Babylonianism rise to heights of earthly glory and power again within the territories it dominated of old.
The city of Babylon will re-emerge and so also will the evil philosophy that has been associated with that city.
Today, Romanism is one of the many daughters of Babylon of old. Indeed, as a daughter she bears the clearest resemblance to the looks and ambitions of her evil mother. We are told in Revelation 17:3-6 of the manifestation of Babylonianism in the last days of this age. God terms this "woman", (a symbol of a system of religion, i.e. Bride of Christ, Song/Solomon 8:5), as "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
I believe this is a picture of Babylonianism when there has been a gathering of all her 'children' under her wings, as it were, and she takes on the full appearance of her wickedness.
There are many false religions in the world today. They are the result, I believe, of the confounding of earth's original language and the scattering that followed as is set forth in our text.
