For years I have heard pastors say the Bible is the completed word of God, but I have never seen anyone make the case. Instead, it seems we were suppose to consider the matter self-evident — since after 2,000 years nothing had been added.
Of course, there are those who claim to have written scripture that adds to or even replaces the Bible. Consider the Koran and the Book of Mormon.
So does the Bible make the claim that it is the completed work of God? In Spiritual Gifts: When Did The Accrediting Gifts Go Out Of Existence? (Part 1), Rob Barkman says it does. His text? That’s what most shocked me. 1 Corinthians 13?!!!!
1 Corinthians 13 is one of the most widely known and quoted of all Bible passages. To find out after reading it so many times that I still don’t understand it is humbling. And yet presents a very logical argument. Check out Spiritual Gifts: When Did The Accrediting Gifts Go Out Of Existence? (Part 1), and please let me know what you think.
