Imitation takes several forms, including imitating other churches and imitating other believers.
But, there is a common denominator… we must know (intimately know) those who we are imitating.
I think the fact that the we do not intimately know others (either churches or individuals) is a hindrance to our discipleship, since we have no model to imitate. We can only imitate what we’ve seen and experienced. What do you think?
