or it does not matter either theological view on issue of Gifts ceasing or continuing?
no.....it is just what scripture teaches.
John MacArthur is a Dispy and a Cessationist.
Wayne Grudem is a Historic Premil and a Continuationist.
More accurate to say that its what OUR interpretations of same scriptures are!
So it all "depends" on how one interpretes the scriptures, regardless of ones theological model?
Yes. And you should never interpret the scripture through your theological model.
Great advise, as we do tend to view the Bible through our own theological "glasses" Eh?
Guess we must go back to bible first!
More like it! And person shouldn't be afraid to challenge what they have always believed, even to the point of giving it up for a more biblical view.
No....I will stand by my post....scripture is not a multiple choice quiz.
Is there any scripture that says God will stop giving spirtiual gifts to us? I've heard that there's no reason to think that he would keep giving them today but what people think and what the Bible says normally aren't the same thing.
Spiritual gifts are one thing.....revelatory gifts are another.
3Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Chapter 1: Of the Holy Scriptures
1._____ The Holy Scripture is the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience, although the light of nature, and the works of creation and providence do so far manifest the goodness, wisdom, and power of God, as to leave men inexcusable; yet are they not sufficient to give that knowledge of God and his will which is necessary unto salvation. Therefore it pleased the Lord at sundry times and in divers manners to reveal himself, and to declare that his will unto his church; and afterward for the better preserving and propagating of the truth, and for the more sure establishment and comfort of the church against the corruption of the flesh, and the malice of Satan, and of the world, to commit the same wholly unto writing; which maketh the Holy Scriptures to be most necessary, [B]those former ways of God's revealing his will unto his people being now ceased[/B].( 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Isaiah 8:20; Luke 16:29, 31; Ephesians 2:20; Romans 1:19-21; Romans 2:14,15; Psalms 19:1-3; Hebrews 1:1; Proverbs 22:19-21; Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:19,20 )
I am a dispy but hold to neither. As I have posted in the past Scripture does not declare them to have ended and yet we do not see them active as they were in scripture. I do not see belief in the sing gifts being related to either doctrine.
