The Historical Importance of Cessationism – May/Jun. 2014

This installment of Truth on Tough Texts addresses one of the most critical issues of our day. The noncessationist view—the novel, 20th-century idea that all the sign gifts are still occurring—has risen to the forefront like never before. In contrast, this article demonstrates that the cessationist position is the only one that emphasizes, defends, and protects the absolute authority, completeness, and sufficiency of Scripture. Anything else opens wide the door of extra-biblical revelation. Citing several quotations from orthodox teachers throughout church history, this article (which is an excerpt from the author’s most recent book) proves the undeniable, irrefutable, and demonstrable fact that cessationism is the historical position of orthodox Christianity. We hope you will read it and pass it on to others.
