"MYSTERY BABYLON (132)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, June 5 2008 - What is the deeper meaning of the fact that the word "Babylon" is the same in two languages, even identifying the very same Mystery, where the meaning is, let's say, quite different?
Sometimes, you'll hear the phrase "Show me your culture, I'll tell you who you are". In this context, we could also say: "Speak to me your language, I'll show you who you are".
Now, it's more important to check ourselves, as we realize how we are all speaking certain levels of Babylonianese. We are all brainwashed to a certain level into at least accepting the idea that Babylon presents herself as the gateway to (the) God(s).
But when we start to realize that Mystery Babylon wants to keep herself hidden, that's why she's a mystery after all, we also start to realize that we should not listen to her when we want to know who she really is.
We need a revelation rather than an initiation, and that's where the fact enters that the One Who has revealed Mystery Babylon simply calls her "confusion".
Now, what is confusion anyway?
