  1. I have a pretty harsh view on concept of foreign languages in general. I personally believe in the Bible and it says God confused mankind's languages when we acted out of pride by trying to reach Heaven on our own. So in essence, I view it as a punishment rather than something that ought to be celebrated. Don't get me wrong, I do think some languages sound beautiful, but the practical side of me think's it's a major barrier to bridging gaps between cultures. It's sad to me that we are so divided and separated as human beings because we all can't communicate with each other under the same tongue. If we were to achieve a one world language, we would save so much money and trade between nations would be so much easier.

    But to answer your question, I'd stick with English because it's the closest thing to a universal language. Everyone else in the world should learn it because it's my idea and that way I don't have to learn a new language :)

     

    Just out of curiosity, how do you interpret Acts 2 and the Day of Pentecost in light of this?
