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 believe they experience those gifts on a regular basis.
While much of the evangelic community has been taught that the prophetic gifts are no longer in operation, much of the full-gospel community embrace the gifts with scant knowledge of biblical or historical evidence for doing so. And with so much misrepresentation and abuse within the charismatic realm, many believers are turned off or freaked out by the supposed operation of prophetic spiritual gifts.
But what does the Bible actually have to say about it? 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.
