First Corinthians 13 says that things like tongues, prophecy and knowledge will cease "when that which is perfect has come." What does that refer to, and when will that happen?
December 21, 2009
First Corinthians 13 says that love hopes all things and endures all things. This means that as long as God's grace is still in operation, human failure is never final. "Love never fails."
