God says in Genesis 9:2, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” Approximately four generations later, for whatever reason, all the people decided to go east. They found a place all of them liked and decided to live there, a place called Shinar. Rather than ‘replenishing the earth’ the people decide to build a city and tower that reaches to heaven. They do this thinking they won’t be scattered upon the face of the earth (Genesis 9:4). This is totally counter to what God said for them to do.
What happens is that God comes down, sees what is going on, confuses their language and scatters them (Genesis 11:9). End of story. Really it isn’t because something marvelous happens in Act 2:1-12. It’s the day of Pentecost, Peter and the eleven are gathered at Jerusalem, the Holy Ghost fills them. Suddenly these men speak so that all that are present hear these men in their own language and understand the message.
Christianity speak in every language, in every country. It’s a message that is spread to anyone who will hear it. Jews have Hebrew, Muslims have Arabic, Buddhists have Pali, and Hindus have Sanskrit. That’s their sacred language. In every nation where Christians meet, there is only one message that speaks in many languages. One Savior, one God, one faith, one baptism, one message, and one communion.
