Babylon the Great

What do you think it represents or means? Revelation is one tough chapter. "She" is mentioned in Revelation 17:5.

  • As Babylon was the first world empire of false worship, Babylon The Great is todays' greater WORLD empire of false worship which includes all religions that stand in opposition to our Creator. And soon she will 'fall' (Rev 18:2). Yay!

  • It does not represent a religious church but a region in the middle east. I have to look it up to recall where but I do know it has nothing to do with a church.

  • A "woman" in prophesy represents a church (whore =apostate church, bride=pure church). (Jeremiah 6:2; Ezekiel 16:15–58; Hosea 2:5; Hosea 3:1; Ephesians 5:23–27; 2 Corinthians 11:2)

    I used to think it was the Catholic church but then I realized they didn't wear puple and scarlet at the same time (Italians always did have good fashion sense).

  • I know some people think it was pagan Rome - I think a good argument can be made that John was referring to the city of Jerusalem.  Of course people can completely ignore the historical perspective and look at Revelation as only futuristic in which case they can make the case that anything they want (or have a prejudice against) is Babylon the Great.

  • Roman catholic church


    Nope - doesn't fit with what the bible says.  See "Whore of Babylon" for details and "Hunting the Whore of Babylon" for the problems with the arguments of those who claim it is.
