 Escaping the Theology of Babylon

Pastor Carter (Conlon) delivered a very powerful message entitled "Escaping the Theology of Babylon." I would describe it as a prophetic word and would encourage you to listen to it and you can judge for yourselves.

I don't know how to make a short URL but it's available from the latest sermons at www.timessquarechurch.com. He preached it yesterday.

An old song has been in my mind for a few days that Johnny Cash did back in the late 50s. It follows the sermon and is entitled "Belshazzer." He also wrote the song and we've been running on our website for the last few weeks.

Well the Bible tells us about a man
Who ruled Babylon and all it's land
Around the city he built a wall
And declared that Babylon would never fall

He had concubines and wives
He called his Babylon "Paradise"
On his throne he drank and ate
But for Belshazzer it was getting late

Chorus:
For he was weighed in the balance and found wanting
His kingdom was divided, couldn't stand
He was weighed in the balance and found wanting
His houses were built upon the sand

The people feast and drank their wine
And praised the false gods of his time
All holy things were scorned and mocked
But suddenly all their mocking stopped

For on the wall there appeared a hand
Nothing else, there was no man
And but, the hand began to write
And Belshazzar couldn't hide his fright

Chorus:
For he was weighed in the balance and found wanting
His kingdom was divided, couldn't stand
He was weighed in the balance and found wanting
His houses were built upon the sand

Well no one around could understand
What was written by the mystic hand
Belshazzar tried but couldn't find
A man who could give him piece of mind

But Daniel the prophet, the man of God
He saw the writing on the wall in blood
Belshazzar asked him what it said
And Daniel turned to the wall and read

"My friend your weighed in the balance and found wanting
Your kingdom was divided, it can't stand
Your weighed in the balance and found wanting
Your houses were built upon the sand"
