This is cessationism ONLY in this thread, BASED ON THIS VERSE AND OUTSIDE VERSES REFERENCE TO THIS VERSE, said in Love
take your Love talk somewhere else, LOL. No, seriously, and, sure, you know me, green, my heart, it is soulfully after He who saved me and shows of Himself often in my life, I believe But, yes, your opinion, pleasez, and, by all means, use Scripture to show your point. Here are the verses, what do these verses say to you regarding cessationism. Are they in support of it, or, not?
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
A few questions (please, by ALL means, pose your own ) for you now, now that you've read the verses, questions posted in the 'speak from God' thread, but, again, this thread is more in caliber with its topic of spiritual gifts, which cessationists believe were DONE AWAY WITH after the long ago, apostolic (2nd century, 200 A.D.) age of apostle Paul, Peter, and, John.
1. What time is this passage in?
2. What is 'perfect to come?' Is it a 'what' even?
3. Why do YOU believe the way you do? Cessassionist or Continuationist.
No COMMENTARIES, just find Scripture, for now. The Lord leads, can't we just all GIT along, little peepies.
This is a polite request, I would like those that believe in spiritual gifts being done away with after the 2nd century to answer these verses without going to anyone's commentary.
Maybe, this is not fair, sorry, I pray that it's not my asking this, but His, I want to know what, ALL THESE YEARS, could be changed of your disbelief in God's ability to Holy Spirit work through you via spiritual gifts He gives you, pleaee, use this set of 1 Cor. 13 verses above listed and any other verses YOU find.
Like here is one supporting verse for my 'continuasionist' view of this passage:
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
God bless you, Christ peeps, be kind, one to another, please, amen.
