Are Spiritual Gifts For Today?

To argue that the continuation of prophecy and other spiritual gifts undermines the authority of scripture is not itself a teaching of scripture. But this is: “Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.” (1 Cor 14:1) Make no mistake—this is a command, and we sin if we do not obey it. Everything is to be brought into subjection to God’s Word, including our confessional identities. Until the Church reaches maturity at the parousia, the spiritual gifts associated with the eschatological age of the Spirit remain a reality about which we should be passionate.
