Mankind’s fighting of the “light” goes beyond any reason or common sense. We fight strifesimply because it is in our nature to do so. Truth and common sense dictate that we live better, feel better, and accomplish more when we love one another and work together. But the ways of Babylon keeps us at each other’s throats. We fight over nationality, skin color, money, status, power, governments, and even God. Babylon seeks to keep us in strife, for she knows that if we ever chose to live as the children of God, she would be defeated in the light of God’s love—the love that covers a multitude of sins and rejoices with those who rejoice, the love that builds instead of tears down, the love that encourages instead of crushes. Babylon seeks to destroy all of human society, and it is our choice to allow her to do so or to wake up and defend our brothers and sisters with the power of our God within His Holy Spirit.

Babylon has taught us not to care for each other. Cain asked God the compelling question that continues to ring throughout human history, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Of course, we know the answer to this question is a resounding yes! God UNITYdesigned us to “keep” each other. When God saw that Adam was alone, He created a helper for him, and He commented that “It is not good for man to be alone” (Gen. 2:18). Till this day, that rings true; we are better together. We are better when we love, care…

and keep each other.
