Shakers argued that the kingdom of heaven was now literally being realized on

Pentecost in which “the believers were one in heart and mind,” (4:32 NIV) and “all

anyone might have need” (2:44-45). And elsewhere in Acts: “for there was not a
needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses would sell
