As there are some , such as Dr Grudem/DA Carson, who would argue for at least prophecy still remaining for church today?

The problem with "prophesy", in particular, it presents an insurmountable problem in regard to verbal plenary inspiration. IF someone claims, "God told me that such and such is going to happen, etc." and it doesn't come to pass exactly as allegedly told, then Deut 18:20-22 is applicable. eek The claim to prophesy in the name of God after the Canon was closed is to deny a closed Canon and assert that God continues to communicate to private individuals with divine truth. And divine truth MUST be infallible and it must also be obeyed. ALL that God has desired to communicate to man and what is required of man in this life is contained FULLY in Scripture and Scripture alone.

I fully agree with you, and also think those 2 brothers know that we would claim they are violating the scriptures with extra biblical revealtion, so forced to see it not as sense of a prophet, more like in the sense of gining insight/widom from God, so watered down the term!
