Acts 2 as the modern traditional church

Okay, so you know that I’m a glutton for a good piece of satire or a post that includes sarcasm. Why? Because even though satire and sarcasm make some people angry, others are able to see themselves in satire and sarcasm where they were not see themselves in a more realistic piece.

All that to say this: Arthur as “The Voice of One Crying Out in Suburbia” has written as excellent satirical/sarcastic piece called “Maybe Luke was wrong because this is how it must have REALLY happened…

In his post, Arthur retells Acts 2 as if everything happened that day the way things normally happen in modern, traditional churches. In fact, Arthur description sounded exactly like the churches I’ve known for the last 30 years or so.

Read through Arthur’s post. Notice how he describes this new “Day of Pentecost.” Then, ready Acts 2. So different… so so different.

    I reread in the more story-ish version of Acts 2 in The Message. Wacky stuff. Absurd, really, by our standards today.

    Art,

    It is interesting to consider the differences though, isn’t it?
