Rev. 17:5 -- And upon her forehead a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, The Mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.

* harlot - Greek : porne-an idolator; prostitute; " to sell"
* abomination - Greek : bdelgma- detestable; to stink

The Harlot of Babylon, the false world religion has corrupted man throughout history with idolatrous worship.

Gen. 11:4 -- "They said, Let us make us a name"

* name - Hebrew: Shem- honour; authority conspicuous position

In Gen. 11:4 Babylon rebelled against God; mothering all idol worship, founding their idolatrous system, when they said, "Let us make us a name." (honor self).

Pride is the foundation of all idolatry. A man is an idol worshippers (of self), when he says, "I will make a name for myself. I am known as an authority (name) by my idols (cars, houses, lands, things.) My position in the community will cause men to look up to me". This is an abomination. Pride is a stinking smell to God. Christians are to be living, acceptable, (pleasing) sacrifices. (Rom 12:1). Wicked-Spiritual Babylon, mother of idolatry, is the system of "pride" has always been here. It is what will pollute the world at the end of time.
