Fallible Prophecy?

Postscript Posthaste: Fallible Prophecy?: “When I read this post by Adrian Warnock this morning, I just had to respond. Particularly because he has backed himself into such a corner, he’s bound to come out the other side as either a cessationist himself or a very inconsistent charismatic (if he hasn’t achieved that title already).”

He then goes on to talk about scripture-forming prophecy and claim that because scripture-forming prophecy was infallible then all prophecy is infallible. Once again I concede that if you are talking about infallible scripture forming prophecy then it CEASED the day the scriptures were complete.

However, what of all the prophecy that wasnt in the bible? Also what of the testing of prophecy, NOT prophets. It seems clear to me that 1 Corinthians is expecting there to be a mixture of revelation, error and generlaly harmless effects of too much cheese in the average members prophecy.

One of these days I will give some examples of modern prophecy and other gifts that I have personally experienced. I will do that though when the cessationists finally start to show me what they feel from the bible itself.

Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. If a revelation is made to another sitting there, let the first be silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged, and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets.” 1 Cor 14:29-32
