They seemed to have no interest in buildings at all. Meetings where held wherever it was cheap and convenient, often in someone's home, but not always. The group of believers was never both a building and a group of people. It was only a group of people, a group that was referred to as a temple that was built for the presence of God. This was a fulfillment of God's promise to David that his descendant would build a temple. In the proclamation of that promise, both God and, ironically, David decried that idea that God should live in a building. Since the building was already built of people, it would have been contradictory (and counterproductive) to create a "house of the Lord," "temple," or "church building." Why encourage them to build something out of bricks and sticks when the building was already done out of something far more dynamic - people? Therefore, the planning of a meeting place was merely finding something that was available and cheap.
