Did I call it, or what? With all due respect to Revolt, who I believe is a brother in Christ who happens to be caught up in a non-Biblical practice, if anyone thinks he hadn't already decided what his conclusion to the thread was going to be before he made the initial post, I've got a bridge in New York I can sell you. And if any of you need conclusive proof that 'tongues' speakers think with their emotions rather than their intellect on the subject of tongues, just read through that thread. Compare the tone of the posts on each side of the argument, and how the intellectual rebuttals to the pro-tongues position are rejected out of hand and then treated as if they were never posted at all. The truth is that the only argument Revolt might have accepted was a reference to a Bible verse that says, "Tongues will cease at 4:29pm on September 17, 83AD." Even then, I have a feeling he would have found some way around it. The Bible doesn't spell everything out that specifically. Often you have to work a little (or a LOT) to determine exactly what the Bible says about a given subject. The verses and passages about tongues all correlate and add up to a coherent doctrine about their existence, use and lifespan. The cessationist case has been clearly laid out in the two threads. The fact that these arguments aren't good enough for those who have already decided that they are going to keep speaking in 'tongues' regardless doesn't diminish the validity of our objective analysis of the Bible's teaching on the subject. Any comments are welcome, and at no point will I ask for this thread to be closed.
