“So, we agree with the Cessationists that yes, certain gifts, at least, they’re going to cease. They’re going to cease,” added Driscoll. “Where we disagree with the Cessationists and we agree with the Continuationists is when they cease. We believe that all of the gifts continue until one very important transitionary moment in the history of the world.”
He continued, “So, when do these gifts cease? When? When Jesus comes back, when we see him face to face. So the Cessationists are right: certain gifts will come to an end. But the Cessationists are wrong: the end has not yet come. And the Continuationists are right: all the gifts continue until we see him face to face, until Jesus comes again.” More here…
While agreeing with cessationists like John MacArthur when certain spiritual gifts cease, Mark Driscoll, with his interpretation of 1 Corinthians 13, believes supernatural spiritual gifts will come to an end at the eschaton, the return of Christ and the consummation of all things.
According to Driscoll, “the perfect” of 1 Corinthians 13:10 is Jesus himself.
(I’m neither a cessationist nor a continuationist. I’m one who is simply open to the activities of God in his world)
