Acts 16
4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered to them the decrees to keep, which were determined by the apostles and elders at Jerusalem. 5 So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and increased in number daily.

Something interesting is that now days we have the Holy Spirit to guide us in what we are suppose to do in conjunction with the Word of God. It appears during this time period they relied heavily on the word of the elders and apostles.

Have we missed it? Or have we progressed to a higher level?
