Stupid Bible Stories part 42 – Paul Is the Worlds Most Boring Preacher


Acts 20:7-9
7  And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
8  And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
9  And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.

When I was a Christian I heard some boring crap.  You know, going on about how you ought to live your life, all the while the preacher and nearly the entire congragation doing the opposite.

But I never thought that a person could be so boring that you’d fall off a loft and die.  Apparently  Paul of Tarsus was that boring.

I’m not really sure why Christians take this guy seriously at all.  His message is very different from the first part of the New Testament.  How it even got included surprises me.  The only thing I can figure is Paul said the old laws didn’t matter anymore.  They knew the old laws were silly, so they chose to take his word over even Jesus.
