Bah.. It’s Probably Just Sweet Wine

In Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost, many were gathered together in one place.  A noise like rushing wind came in, and their eyes saw what appeared to be tongues of flames resting on each one of them.  Then many of them started speaking in other languages, native languages of many of those gathered together.  These Galileans were speaking languages they did not know, so that others from other parts of the world could understand them in their own languages.  They were astonished, and for good reason.  I think anybody would be if they saw this.

But, there were those who saw all of this that mocked them and said “They are full of sweet wine” as a way to justify what was going on.  If that’s the case, I’d like to know what kind of wine they were drinking to be able to cause a sound like rushing wind, create tongues of fire that hover over people, and that allow people to instantly learn languages they do not know.

Seriously though, if all of that was going on, and you saw it and heard it with your own eyes, how could you just attribute all of that to wine?  You’d almost have to be drunk yourself to think like that.
