Augustine Was Not A Cessationist

Augustine Was Not A Cessationist October 21, 2008

AugustineLex Loizides tells us more in a post whose title provocatively states: “From cessationism to joy — how a healing increased Augustine’s understanding of God’s grace.”

Now somebody somewhere is possibly going to try to explain to me how healing doesn’t have to be a gift of the Holy Spirit, and that not all cessationists deny the possibility of God healing today. It’s just possible that I might understand that distinction this time round, but I must confess, I struggled to grasp it last time. Does anyone want to try to enlighten me further?

To be fair to Lex, I also ought to point out that his blog is not entirely about the cessationist issue. I do encourage you to join him as he slowly works his way through Church history in bite-sized pithy chunks.
