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.
