Over the past few months, I have been taking our church, Cornerstone, through an in-depth series on the gifts of the Spirit as found in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. I specifically spent 3 weeks centred around the gift of prophecy and 3 weeks centred around the gifts of tongues and interpretation.
I wanted to make all the teachings available in one place. So here they are below. You can click on the icons to listen to them here, or you can download them from our podcast by clicking on the links provided. Finally, you can listen to and download them all from iTunes.

I wanted to know whether you, anyone affiliated with your website, or any of the authors/speakers you list have ever heard of someone named Robert Gromacki. He wrote a book years ago entitled “The Modern Tongues Movement” in which he condemned the whole thing. His work is often cited by opponents of the charismata as a clear cut Biblical exposure of tongues today, refuting it by an accurate presentation of what the New Testament supposedly says about how long tongues were supposed to last.
I have never found any material written by a pentecostal/charismatic scholar (someone who is truly versed in what the New Testament REALLY says about tongues) that comes to grips intellectually and Scripturally with Gromacki’s claims. Are you familiar with his book and if so do you know of anyone who has refuted his charges?
I am not personally aware of Robert Gromacki and his work. I have read and listened to varying teachings on either 1) why the gifts do not exist or 2) why they should not be considered normal today. It’s possible Gromacki has some different-newer arguments, but don’t know. A part of me things he wouldn’t have something new, just like cessationists have heard all of the continuationist arguments before. In the end, though Scripture is our starting base, I sense that, especially with this topic, ‘seeing is believing’. I’ve seen and tasted.
