      that prophecies and (speaking in) tongues will come to an end (13:8), and
      then a few lines later extol the virtues of prophecy as against speaking in
      tongues (14:1b-5)."

      Not so, Ron. 13:8 refers to a time after the eschaton, 14: 1-5 is firmly in the here and now. Paul's argument in 1 Cor. 12-14 is that all things should be done in a spirit of love. I suspect Paul May be saying faith which does not result in love is not true faith.
