Pentecost: Best Holy Day Ever

Can we please have one now?

Today is Pentecost, the Christian version that originated from the extraordinary story reported in Acts 2:1–21. Apparently, on that day, a whole crowd of Spirit-struck believers were speaking in different languages, but everyone was hearing in their own language.

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. … And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. … and the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

Nice. Everyone was understood by everyone, just as if they were speaking in their own language, or had Babel fish in their ears.

So… the exact opposite of nearly every conversation people have these days, where the goal seems to be to refute every definition, find offense wherever possible, and discover core irreconcilable differences as soon as possible. Case closed.

But on Pentecost, there were supernatural forces at work…
