God punished man at the Tower of Babel for his arrogance. We are once again very arrogant and we are positioning ourselves to be judged by the Almighty. We've excluded God from our schools, our homes, our culture. We've excluded him from creation and substituted our own idea of how it all may have happened so he wouldn't have to be included: this is arrogant.
We are proud of all our human accomplishments. We celebrated going to the moon this past week. Somehow we think we have done all those things without God. How foolish is the heart of man.
1. We are very proud to be able to control our environment.
Do you know what those who raise bees know? The temperature of a beehive must be a constant 94 degrees. In the winter the bees gorge themselves with honey and their overactive metabolism keeps the hive warm. In the summer thousands of workers beat their wings furiously and air condition the hive so it stays at exactly 94 degrees.
Ecc. 1:9 “…there is no new thing under the sun.”
2. We are very proud of the mechanical pumps we have created.
But none has been able to produce a pump like God did. The human heart pumps 100,000 times every day and has a work expectancy of over 70 years without shutdown for maintenance or repair? Strange how man looks at the great pumps that pumped water out of New Orleans and wondered at the mind of man to create such a machine. But man looks at the pump in the chest of every human and denies there is any intelligence involved in its existence!!
3. We are so proud to use our sonar systems to find black boxes and Titanics under the ocean.
Already been done.The bat has such a sensitive sonar system that it can avoid obstacles and catch flying insects on the darkest nights. Where did the bat learn sonar? 4. We have created computers that can do almost anything.God can say, "Been there, done that." Your brain is more impressive than any computer ever made. The nerve lines in your brain are more than all the telephone lines of the world put together. Your brain can decipher millions of impulses instantaneously.
