Acts 6:1-7, pt. 2. The first fight in the history of church is all patched up, the widows are getting fed, and everyone is feeling much better. But, to fix the problem, the church had to organize up and create offices. Was the church better when it was pristine and unorganized? Is there where the church went off the rails? Was this the beginning of centuries of universal institutional abuses?
I don’t think so. At all. In fact, I kind of like organized religion, and in this unusual episode on Acts 6, I talk about why.
Matt Whitman believes in God and thinks things are funny. He was raised in Fort Collins, Colorado before moving to Chicago where he graduated from Trinity College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He met his wife Camilla on his first day of college in his first class. They’ve got three kids together and now live in the mountains of beautiful western Wyoming where Matt works as the Senior Pastor of the Lander Evangelical Free Church. Matt’s a teach-straight-through-books-of-the-Bible kind of guy and uses his appreciation of history, humor, culture, and narrative to help people understand God’s Word. In addition to church and family, Matt throws a lot of time at filmmaking. He writes, acts, and directs and also hosts a YouTube program called The Ten Minute Bible Hour in which he teaches books of the Bible in a tight, informative, and funny format.
