Some cessationists (those who believe that the gifts of the Spirit are not for today) will say that 1 Corinthians 13:10-12 teaches that after the Bible was fully delivered to the church we no longer expect to see the gifts of the Spirit operating. While I think cessationists can give us valuable insights I think this particular passage is used wrongly when they use it to support cessationism. I'll be giving an analysis of 1 Cor 13:10-12 and interacting with the views of some cessationists. I want to point out that there are plenty of cessationists who are with me on this passage and say not to use it in support of their position. So don't consider this a debunking of all cessationism but merely a refutation of a misuse of 1 Cor 13. Here's the article I referenced from the Master's Seminary If you love this ministry and want to help support me continuing to make free content then please click here. If you want your own "BibleThinker" coffee mug then click here (and be sure to read the page for instructions of shipping discounts and details) I often get asked about what Bible software I use. It's called Logos and you can get it at the link below. There is a free version which you will find helpful. The nicer versions are a serious investment but I've found it to be really integral in my own Bible studies. I also have a 10% discount for you if you use the coupon code BIBLETHINKER8 when you make your purchase. This is an affiliate link but I only recommend it because it really is an incredibly useful software I have used for 13 years and because I can get you a discount with this link.
