Cessationism is the term given to the idea that the miraculous gifts of healing and tongues described in the New Testament were given solely in and for the apostolic era for the foundation of the church and are no longer in effect. The Bible does not either explicitly support or refute cessationism, but some Christians, particularly Pentecostals, argue that the Bible does not support cessationism at all[1] and that the gifts must therefore have continued on, whether or not the historical record gives evidence of them at later times.
