Good point!YIKES! Even KNOWLEDGE has passed away!!!! We're all a bunch of walking zombies with no knowledge. (snicker, snort)
This reminds me how careful we must be with our proof texts....
I would agree with Foy E. Wallace who stated stated it:....................
The miraculous endowments designated SPIRITUAL gifts have FAILED, have CEASED, have VANISHED AWAY and are therefore no longer in force. All such powers were temporary and provisional and cannot now be exercised.Cross Reference

There is a meaning in such words as "cease ... fail ... vanish away," not merely of continuing no longer, but of being superseded by something else.
As Dr. John W. Russell noted (Compact Commentary on the New Testament (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Book House, 1964), p. 426.)
"Tongues prophecies, and ... knowledge shall be superseded."Cross
Despite the fact of Russell's taking a dispensational view of this passage, his idea of "superseded" is correct. And what was to supersede the tongues, etc.? It was the inspired writing of the New Testament. Thus, the fact of the appearance of that which was to do the superseding proved the near approach of the time for it to occur. In a sense, this Epistle superseded the tongues of Corinth.
