I don't see it that way.Rather, you live as if the Word of God is sufficient to tell you how to have eternal life and tell you how to live, and you can be open to God being unpredictable, but you don't think that God gives out those gifts anymore such that people could routinely perform them.One could do a heckuvalot worse than thinking the Word of God is sufficient, and that is the farthest thing from being an atheist.
I respect that position, and I think there’s a lot of truth to it. (Keep in mind that I think the position of semicessationists like Poythress and even full-blown continuationists like Sam Storms and Wayne Grudem is consistent with the sufficiency of Scripture.)
I think Christians should be prepared to lead utterly uneventful, unremarkable lives. Lives in which nothing out of the ordinary ever happens to them. No miracles. No premonitions.
I think every Christian should be content to live like that. Be resigned to a cessationist experience (if you will). That’s a trusting, godly attitude. That's the life God has called many Christians to.
I interpret Joel’s prophecy has having reference, not to all Christians, but all classes of Christians.
In addition, one of the dangers of Pentecostalism is to miss the mediated presence of God in providence and Scripture by seeking God’s presence in special or spectacular manifestations. That neglects how much we can and do experience God in the mundanities of daily life.
That said, it concerns me that hardline cessationists, in their reactionary zeal, become the mirror image of James Randi, Susan Blackmore, Martin Gardner, Bill Nye, Paul Kurtz, Paul Edwards, Michael Shermer, et al.
The general outlook is alarmingly similar. A hostile, knee-jerk scepticism to modern supernatural reports. That’s not an attitude which Christians should cultivate. And I think it can be spiritually harmful. Doctrinaire doubt is corrosive to Christian faith and piety.
