The Modern Day Tower Of Babel

The end of a civilization is marked by the love of money (greed). Not that money per se is the evil force, but when it becomes the prime driving force in all our activities, it takes on the form of idol worship at the expense of true spiritual and eternal guidelines. Thank you for giving an opportunity for reflection, Philip!

THE ESSAYIST

For many years a majority of the nations in the world have always considered America (USA) to be the harbinger of civilization.
