Genesis 11-16

Isn’t part of the problem of living in today’s world a lack of understanding of others.  Language is only part of it, and people were always and are always going to disagree but wouldn’t the world be a nicer place to live if we could only discuss issues with each other and not turn to violence.  When I speak of violence I speak of mankind in general; I am a pacifist myself and cannot understand the need in others for violence.  We have been given the wonderful tool of language, whichever that may be.  Yes, it would be easier if we all used the same one, but then diversity makes us richer and should allow for innovation and progress.

Judaism is not my faith and I don’t pretend to have much knowledge of it although I have come across people in my life who are Jewish.  Clearly though in this part of the Bible we are now entering where major aspects of that faith stem from.  Now is not the time for me to do any further research into it though as from what little I know, I feel this could never be my faith especially as I was not born into it.  Of course, I could be wrong about that.
