Anachronistic Theological Claims

Unlike paedobaptism, there are explicit examples in the NT of prophetic speech by the church without any Scripture that says such things will stop after the close of the canon. What that means is that the Scriptures provide as much explicit warrant for cessationism as it does for paedobaptism. Given that Reformed Baptists typically believe explicit warrant is required for a doctrine, it’s curious that cessationism is so strongly held in Reformed Baptist circles.

But, even here, no Reformed Baptist goes around calling Presbyterians cultish for believing in paedobaptism. Why attack Pentecostals and Charismatics on a similar secondary issue, especially when there is no explicit warrant for cessationism in Scripture?
