Charismata in the first five centuries

There is neither scriptural nor anecdotal evidence that the gifts of the Holy Spirit died out at the end of the apostolic era. Biblically, it is impossible to prove the case for cessationism.

It is equally impossible to prove a cessationist viewpoint historically. It simply does not fit the facts.

Four Views Of Spirit Baptism

The question of baptism in the Spirit has been a controversial one for a long time. Part of the problem lies in the different ways we use the term. It can easily mean different things to different people. It is this different usage which generally distinguishes Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Charismatics and Third Wavers from one another.
