"Holy Spirit Come to Us!"

Tis' the birthday of the Church! The anniversary of when Jesus brought down the Holy Spirit upon the disciples to continue his word.

Act 2:1-11:

When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.

Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem.
At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd,
but they were confused
because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
They were astounded, and in amazement they asked,
"Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?
Then how does each of us hear them in his native language?
We are Parthians, Medes, and Elamites,
inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia,
Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
Egypt and the districts of Libya near Cyrene,
as well as travelers from Rome,
both Jews and converts to Judaism, Cretans and Arabs,
yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues
of the mighty acts of God."

Praise and rejoice, spread the works and word of God!

Christianity is false and morally obscene. I rejoice at the prospect of it becoming an irrelevant largely marginal residue in Western societies.

Why should anyone care what the Bible has to say?

Because there is a lot of money to be made from it.

Ahahaha

And, like you kindly pointed out, Christianity also inspires a good laugh from time to time.
