"MYSTERY BABYLON (183)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, November 23 2008 - Just how did I commit spiritual fornication with Mystery Babylon by joining the "Christian Reggae Scene"?
For that, we have to take a look at "physical fornication". After all, Babylon is presented to us in a physical symbol.
When a man and a woman have intercourse, they "mix", they "become one flesh". And when that man and that woman are not each other's partners, they become one flesh where they should not do that.
Ergo: fornication is -in a way- just another word for "mixing that which should not be mixed".
Mixing that which should not be mixed, or "con-fusion": it's marking the identity nature and personality of Mystery Babylon.
For Babylon means: "con-fusion", "mix-up"... fornication!
One Love, Give Thanks,
