A pattern of Christianity. In the epistles we get the principles of Christianity, but in the book of Acts we have a pattern of Christianity, and a pattern at the beginning of the Church’s testimony. Today we live in the last days of Christianity on the earth, but the pattern laid down at the beginning still stands. God’s wisdom is shown by giving us a pattern from the beginning, because things are presented to us in their purest form. Would you rather have the original blueprints to build a house, or a copy of a copy of a copy?
