Yes, there is enough evidence in my opinion that shows charismatic gifts were part of the early church. There is a really good book I read awhile back by two Roman Catholic scholars called, "Christian Initiation and Baptism in the Holy Spirit: Evidence from the First Eight Centuries. They did a pretty good job in their research using mainly patristic sources as their guide in proving that many of the gifts outlined in 1st Cor. 12 by the Apostle Paul were in operation in the church.
I'd be interested to read some of their evidence if you could present it.
A few examples that I can think of right now
Now, you didn't just "think of these right now" did you? You simply copied sections and paraphrased from this Wikipedia article
(which, for all you know, could have been written by Benny Hinn).
would be from church leaders such as Irenaeus, who wrote around A.D. 150 "...we hear many of the brethren in the church who have prophetic gifts, and who speak in tongues through the spirit, and who also bring to light the secret things of men for their benefit..." Elsewhere he said, "When God saw it necessary, and the church prayed and fasted much, they did miraculous things, even of bringing back the spirit to a dead man."
What is the Context? Is he talking of his contemporaries? The second quote clearly speaks in the past tense, so he is not talking of contemporaries there.
Near the close of the second century, Tertullian cited similar incidents, describing the operation of prophecies, healings and tongues, and in 210,
Tertillian was a heretic, not a Church Father. And Tertillian himself was a Montanist
, so basically that would be like asking a Pentacostal if Christians speak in toungues today and basing your doctrinal belief on his answer.
Origen reported many healings and other charismatic gifts, as did later writers such as Eusebius, & Firmilian.
Origen was a heretic, not a Church Father.
Eusebius was a heretic, not a Church Father.
