I. INTRODUCTION

A. WOMEN ARE VERY IMPORTANT IN GOD'S KINGDOM.

1. THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURE WE FIND WOMEN
PLAYING A SIGNIFICANT ROLE.

2. WOMEN, IN THE BIBLE HAVE HAD A POSITIVE AND A
NEGATIVE AFFECT ON THE KINGDOM.

- YOU HAVE AN ESTHER WHOSE COURAGE SAVED

B. THE PROSPERITY. VS. 4.

1. THE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM WILL THINK ITSELF RICH.

2. THERE WILL BE A SELF SATISFACTION.

C. THE PASSION. VS. 5.

1. IDOLATRY BEGAN WITH THE BUILDING OF THE TOWER

2. THE ACTIVITY WILL BE SCANDELOUS. THERE WILL
