MHS501― Cessationism vs. Continuism
Required for MDiv― 4 credits. No Prerequisite.
This course focuses on the controversy between: those who believe the revelatory gifts of the Spirit of God ceased with the death of the original apostles and closing of the biblical canon, and those who experience those gifts on a regular basis.
With so much misrepresentation and abuse within the charismatic realm, many believers are turned off or freaked out. But what does Bible interpretation say? What do the historical church fathers say? In this course, you will explore whether what believers today are attributing to the Holy Spirit may be truly prophetic or just pathetic.
Online course. Text is included. Authored by Dr. Frank Burg and Dr. Lynmarie Burg
