Confronting Genesis

Christianity and Diversity

November 17, 2019 / Justin Anderson

In the penultimate sermon in our Confronting Genesis series, Pastor Justin explored the topic of Diversity through the lens of the story of the Tower of Babel. Contrary to what some of us learned in Sunday school, the story of Babel is about a people who didn’t want to explore God’s diverse world, but instead decided to protect themselves from that world by building a city. God’s response was to confuse their language in order to get them back on the mission that he had given to them in the Cultural Mandate.
