    I don't understand your question.
    Are you asking if we believe the sign/miraculous gifts have ceased?
    Are you asking if tongues are necessary for a person to be filled with the Spirit?
    The term, charismatic, is too broad, therefore I ask you to clarify.

    Do you hold to any of those statements in regards to how many, if any, of the spiritual gifts still in operation today is question?

    If you are waiting for John to die that means they have never ceased.

    Probably better stated as the canon was complete. Paul said, "when that which is perfect is come." He did not say, "when John dies."

    It also may help if the OP restated the question and options again. So when quoting later in the thread they are in the quoted post.

    Just my two cents. As signs they ceased. Did God use them and signs over the last 2000 years? Perhaps, at least until certain languages reached the point when Scripture came to them. So it was for them until that which is perfect arrived for them. The Word of God replaces the gifts. Gifts deal more with emotions and the heart. The Word deals mainly in the mind and thoughts and it also works on the heart and emotions.

    I do not hold to cessationism. However the so called "tongues" used in church services or in a "prayer closet" is not the tongues of scripture and it serves no legitimate spiritual purpose.

    If I woke up one morning miraculously speaking Mandarin Chinese then to me that would be a message as to a missionary endeavor.
