God’s Merciful End of Brick and Mortar Religion

In this short essay, Shawn contends that the Old Testament event at Babel is a picture for all believers everywhere to consider as depicting the foolishness of human beings attempting to reach God through the construction of brick and mortar edifices. Combining a number of contextual references, Shawn cites the overall biblical description God Himself provides that plainly underscores that a time would come when He would operate in the lives of those who seek Him and that it would be subjective, spiritual and outside the confines of material applications. Shawn appeals to his upbringing in the LDS church as a material model to refute, citing the fact that they teach that they are, in fact, the only true (brick and mortar) church on the face of the earth.
