Greetings new member.

Perhaps it would be useful if you told us what you think of John MacArthur's text sermon on Charismatic Chaos, and then offer a link as to where one can read the sermon for further reading.

 Re:


Greetings back to you.
Sorry I don't know how to do a link. Basically what he said was that tongues were a language in acts that people understood. He said why would God give you a language you can't understand plus to edify yourself. God gives gifts for the body not personel use. He saids tongues have ceased.Its a dangerous topic I'm just slinging some mud. I would rather say something people could understand. God Bless

Hello there,

I read John McArthurs book Charismatic Chaos. Although he is quite a brand name in evangelical circles and much of his other teaching seems to be sound I can only warn of this book. I do not even find it well researched but rather opinionated.

I find Zac Poonen's Article very helpful to bring clarity to this hotly debated issue.

I do not find much to add to this good article. Allow me just to make 1 little remark.

This is one of the primary verses cessationist quote:

1 Cor. 13:8: "Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away."

Why then does only tongues cease and not knowledge ,too?
