Question? You’re beliefs says that God ended at revelation, the bible says that that God is the same as yesterday today and tomorrow. I believe in tongues. Even Paul said I’m glad I speak in tongues more than any of you. So tell me where is the sin. In tongues??? Tell me please…
1 Corinthians 13:8 – 10…
1 Corinthians 13:8-10 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. (9) For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. (10) But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
In V10, the words “THAT WHICH” in the Greek is in the NEUTER GENDER (a verb – that refers TO THINGS, OBJECTS that are NEITHER masculine or feminine) therefore telling us that the words IS PERFECT is referring to AN OBJECT not a person.
The words IS PERFECT is the Greek word TELEION which means COMPLETE.
QUESTION?… What Thing or Object do we have today that is COMPLETE?
ANSWER… The Bible
Back BEFORE the scriptures ( the Bible ) were in complete written form ( as we have today ) THERE WAS ( but no more ) a need for tongues in order for those apostles ( the ONLY ONES along with the 70 that Christ had commissioned – Luke 10:1 HAD the gifts of Mark 16:17, 18 ) such as the Apostle Paul to share the Gospel and preach the Word of God to those they could not speak or had the available scriptures in those languages.
Therefore V9 states that they could only preach in part ( that’s because they could only preach from the scriptures that were available to them outside from the revelations that God would revel to them. For they (the scriptures) had not yet been all written at that time or gathered all into one book form as we have today.
As V10 says WHEN “The Bible/ Scriptures” are COMPLETE ( Is Perfect ) is come (completly written) THEN those of V8 will NO LONGER “be operational” They will be STOPPED, Cease to Function, WHY?, because the scriptures,The Bible, are complete, written. EVERYONE has access to the scriptures.
In Fact… The Gospel and the Word of God has been preached to the entire world in Paul’s time.
Colossians 1:23… “If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister.”
There is NO NEED for tongues, just the need for people to believe what God has given to us in written form.
Where is the sin, you asked…
The Sin is… The Rejection of truth.
The Sin is… Not believing the scriptures.
The Sin is… Excepting false teaching and doctrine in light of scripture and the teaching of Right Doctrine.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
