With the prophets and apostles, they had an extremely difficult existence. Hated, dishonored, beaten, lonely, and many endured horrible deaths. I find it interesting so many today can claim to have the same abilities, but lack the laden continuity of such a calling.
And in my opinion the reason that MOST people refuse to even listen to the interpretations presented by continuationists is that they are afraid of the persecution that they will receive from family, friends, and their church if they were to agree that their hermeneutic is superior to the cessationists.
The only reason that Pentecostals or non Pentecostals are not being killed today is because 1) Roman Catholics lost Secular power, and 2) The Secular powers in many countries like America have a legal system that values human life which was based on the affect that the Gospel of Jesus Christ had on the world and the human psyche as it relates to morals.
