I was beginning a reasoning with General Nyabinghi about the nature of Babylon.
First I think that the first thing that is in order is to define what Babylon is.
Is Babylon merely a physical place?
Is Babylon a mental and spiritual state?
If I was to go with the idea that Babylon is a physical place, then that would mean that everyone who lives in that place are agents of Babylon. Likewise, anyone that live in the place known as Zion are righteous workers of the almighty.
If Babylon is a mental and spiritual state, then that would mean that Babylon, as well as Zion would be non partial to location, nationality, race, and culture because all would be judged according to their works.
The notion that Babylon (hell) and Zion (heaven) are destined for people according to where they reside further perpetuates that chosen mentality of the modern day Jews.
I personally think that babylon is the lower nature of man and Zion is his higher nature. It is this higher nature that make man christlike/annointed/enlightened. It has nothing to do with a physical place.
For it is the said that the earth is the Lord's and the fullest thereof.
What do the I's think?
