Have the Gifts of the Spirit Passed Away?
by Sue Spender
A Little Bit About Me...
Married, full time mum,been a Christian for 14 years - but thinking is this all there is to it.....
What I would like to discuss...
The Holy Spirit - well my husband would say that he speaks/prays in tongues - I was prayed for when I got baptized 14 years ago and have never spoken in tongues.
I have seen it practiced 'weirdly' in some churches, and we now go to a church that believes the gifts of the Spirit are not for today, as they say that when 'that which is perfect' has come - is the full scriptures, not just the old testament that the believers of Paul's day had.
So I really don't know one way or another.
I'm fed up going to wacky churches, and fed up going to a very dull service also - what to do?
My husband has been a Christian for about 24 years - yet he has never even read his Bible through completely even once. He never reads it in private or openly at home - yet still claims to speak in tongues. I wonder how he hears anything from God or how he knows he is praying right when he doesn't read ???
