America is Babylon the great, fallen (Revelation 14:8)

"Another angel, a second, followed, saying, 'Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality.'" - Revelation 14:8

I'm just now starting into the commentary I have on Revelation, but I wanted to comment myself even though it may not apply. I read this and thought America.

I'm sure someone smarter than me has applied this better to something else. But the way I see it, America is really the modern Babylon - it is definitely the world power, and dominantly so (though we're probably on the decline to China). And if the sexual immorality is the lack of faithfulness to our Bridegroom the Lord, then it seems a good fit.

We have worshiped money and comfort. And now in a truly unique era of globalization we have passed that sentiment on to the world. The whole world can have a taste now of our comforts, our wealth, and we teach it can be theirs if they just work hard enough.

America has made all the nations drink the wine of our idolatry. We turned away from the Lord to money and then we brought it as a god to the rest of the world and forced them to take part.

Just a thought. Agree? Disagree?
