A Scripture Fable: I was taught and for many years believed and taught to others the following….
The “sign gifts” such as apostles, prophets, prophecy, tongues, interpretation, healings, miracles, wisdom, knowledge, discerning of spirits etc all passed away when the scriptures were complete and have not been in operation among believers of the Body of Christ since that time. This false teaching is never stated in scripture but is deduced from I Cor.13:8-13 where it is falsely assumed that “that which is perfect” was the completion of the scriptures before the end of the first century A.D. Scripture clearly teaches otherwise! Therefore this is another false teaching of which I had to repent and reject even though many close friends disagree with me. This teaching divided me for far too long from saints who simply take God at His word and believe what the Bible says for itself.
