People who deny the gifts do so because they have not experienced much of God - it is that simple. There are at least two scriptures which teach that the gifts will be around until the second coming...not including mark 16. But since your highest authority is the Protestant Reformation I won't waste my time and quote them. Besides your system always takes precedence over scripture.

ZS, I'll let you and Pilgrim hash out the biblical warrant for tongues & other sign gifts if indeed such Scriptures actually exist. But we have a congregation here in Texas that contains many former Pentecostals who would tell you that they've never experienced so much of the grace and love of God as they have since they left Pentecostalism.

So, not everybody's experience is the same, is it? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/scratch1.gif" alt="" />
