      Brian Angela Doyle Do you have a staff that turns into a snake? If not, then you are a Cessationist: The Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts as He will. Some gifts are temporary, such as the signs of an Apostle. The offices of Prophet and Apostle were to lay the foundation of the Church (Eph. 3). That work was completed in the first century.

      Continuationism is not grounded in sound biblical exegesis.
