Ken Wytsma :: Should we live with ‘all things in common’ like in Acts 2?

  • “Everyone still had their identity,” says Ken Wytsma, President of Kilns College and Founder of The Justice Conference, in reference to Acts 2. Today, we tend to swing between underemphasizing our independence and overemphasizing our differences. Living in community is naturally hostile to us because of competition for jobs or finances. “All human relationship, when you bond together in some sort of […] community, affects your finances.”

    When we come together into a church community, we are coming together as the body of Christ, meaning our resources are not just our own. In Acts 2, the people were excited about their community and God took action to guard the integrity of that body. “True community is mutual submission, you come and you throw things in out of a good heart and good motives.”
