The apostle Paul said that the spiritual gifts of prophecy, tongues, and knowledge will someday pass away: "Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears." (1 Corinthians 13:8-10) This is the only passage in the entire New Testament which tells us when any gifts of the Spirit will pass away. If we want to know whether or not these spiritual gifts have "died out" (as some people believe) then don't we need to understand what completion it is speaking of? IF this was as most say...ceased! Don't you think more scripture would be written to explain it away?
