The research findings suggest that teen drivers make several critical errors on the road, including inexperience, lack of scanning in detecting as well as responding to hazards, overspeeding where there are speed limits, being distracted by gadgets like cellphones among others (Heath 6). In reality, it is arguable that…

    bump them down a notch on the totem pole. God not only scattered the people as an act of prevention, but he also punished them for the sin they had committed. God had instructed them to go forth and spread out among the lands. They basically decided to the exact opposite. The people thought it would be best if they stayed together. They began to build the tower because they wanted to make a name for themselves instead of letting everything they do glorify God. The people of Shinar building the…

    In my essay I will look at how the theme of disruption from a higher power appears in The Tower of Babel (GHM 4.4) but also appears in The United States Government. In The Tower of Babel (GHM 4.4) people after the flood had one language and settled in Shinar. They further decided to build a city with a tower that went up into the heavens. Yahweh (the Hebrew name of god) saw the city and tower and expressed concern for the powerful unity of the people under one language. So Yahweh scattered the…

On both sides a curse is written for thieves and for perjurers. The curse would devour the houses of these sinners. “House” could be a physical structure, or it could be one’s family.

    and mentioned the power of the God of Abraham by hiding the spies in her home. Excluding Rahab all of the decendents of Canaan were to be wiped out, as a purging of that culture. This is not a new theme in the Scriptures as we saw with Sodom and Gomorrah. However, this time it was God’s order to man rather than God and His angels carrying out the command. It was also referenced in the lecture that this similar command was given about Achan and 36 more Israelites who stole from God i.e. the…
