oneismanifest with 'speakingintongues' while edifyingGod.This gift isreceived by the person who is truly worshipping. One cannot claim to have receieved this gift anyhow, for it is divine in nature.Ihave seen a person manifest with this gift, hewasnt uttering gibberish.He was on his knees and hands raised up, he spoke in a language never heard of,there was also a person ministering theprayer session where he wasinterpreting what was being said. This person who was manifest told us ofthe joy and peace that came to him as a result of speaking in the tongue.Theso called praying in tongues what is seen today in many circles is gibberish.One can pray in tongues only after having received the gift of speaking in tongues which is divineandcomesfromGod

BettyW, amen sister. Moreover the Holy Spirit that i know is neither a bully nor a (excuse me the expression) evil spirit who overtakes and forces people to do things they are uneasy with. God is a FREE God and he wants His children to worship him in Spirit and TRUTH. however i do believe in manifestations of the spirit i found out God does allow everybody to worship Him in his/her own capacity. Yet of course always in the name of Jesus Christ.(Acts 19.3-5) so one might find God as easely in a crazy African church, as in a quit evangelical church. (however the exeption of false churches needs to be made.
---Andy on 3/30/09

Because some people lie and fake it. The real Holy Spirit does not make a spectacle of a person, but leads them in all righteousness.
---BettyW on 3/22/09

lisa also hit the nail and went a little futher.
the bible warns us of false profits, and false christians.
where are they? I would start with people that pick and choose verses and ignore other verses, spreading there poison around the earth. What about people that make up stuff and try to add to the bible,like the trinity. not in the bible at all.
we are warned in (rev22:18-19) not to add or take away from the book or you will be condemed. yet, they ignore that verse also.
we are held accountable for what we say when witness. I'm not gonna go to hell for being politically correct. I answer to the lord and the lord alone...
---batieste on 3/20/09

Battieste, so which church is the true Church? is it not that church that says that Jesus is the way the truth and life? and that He is the only Way to God.
isnt that the churchthat confesses their sins and repents and becomes servants of GOD, shasing for holyness?
isnt that the church who says Abba Father?
isnt that the church who say that The Christ has come in the flesh, died and rose again on the third day? i'm part of that church. and im a defender of this faith. so i will go to heaven toghether with my denominational and nondenominational, and interdenominational brothers and sisters.
---Andy on 3/20/09

Batieste, you hit the nail on the head. Satan hates it when truth is revieled and he just wants to sink his teeth deeper. John 3:5 says Unless a man be baptized in Spirit and Water, he cannot even see the kingdom of God.". What happens according to the book of Acts? When the Holy Ghost baptizes you, you speak in tongues as evidence. Not everyone will get the revelation about who exctly gets to go to heaven..Acts 2:38. and Peter said, "repent and be baptized everyone of you for the remittance of sins and you will be baptized will the Holy Ghost."
This here is why we that are truly heaven bound are called a peculiar and seperate people. And that doesn't even guarantee entrance! Holy Ghost Maintenance..
---lisa on 3/20/09

I know i will afend some people but here is the truth. there is only ONE way to heaven. everyone else will go to hell according to the bible. ALL these denominations so called christians are false teachings.
Matthew 7:14-15 (King James Version)

14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
my guess why people are hostile to tongues is that they arent humble to acept the truth. and ofcourse satan rises up in people when the truth comes out.
---batieste on 3/18/09

Isaiah 28:11 "For with the speech of lips, and with another tongue he will speak to this people and yet will they by no means believe.
Here's a sample of "tongue" Gk glossalia.
In loquella enim labii et lingua altera loquetur ad populum istum
And as Paul said. 2Cr 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:

1Cr 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not:
Prophesy is for the believer/flock.

Catholic Encyclopedia
"Faithful adherence to the text of Sacred Scripture makes it obligatory to reject those opinions which turn the charism of tongues into little more than infantile babbling, incoherent exclamations, pythonic utterances, or prophetic demonstrations of the archaic kind"

Paul said if we don't have interpretation people will look at us like we are nuts. Most tongues are false anyway. Most just talk without thinking and out comes this babble. It's not real tongues. Real tongues is the Holy Spirit taking over your mouth at His will(you don't always know when it will happen). I used to speak those false tongues even the unsaved can do it.

Rev. Glen could you quote me chapter and verse where Jesus speaks in toungs. I don't think he ever did, nor does the Bible explisitly state that He does. Not denying the validity of the Gift, just checking your source.
---Rev._Glen on 7/31/07

You have got to be kidding, Jesus talks in tongues in intercession for us? You might want to read your bible first before making a silly statement like that! And, tongues as a qualifier for salvation? Paul states it very simply in Romans TNT (Ch 10 v. 9 & 10), Confess on the Lord Jesus Christ...and you will be saved". No contingency of a second baptism or speaking in tongues.
---Rev._Glen on 7/30/07

Tongues are a sign to the unbeliever, when a person that does not believe in tongues speaks in tongues it makes a believer out of them.
---exzucuh on 1/8/07

if tongues are for the unbeliever, then it should not scare off unbelievers when they enter into a church and hear people babbling lke that. also, why isn't there a more even distribution between the gifts of the spirit, especially since it seams that tongues edify the church the least? is God (the Holy Spirit) not smart enough anymore to allow people to speak in real foreign languages like the desciples did on the day of pentecost? i'm sure He is. don't turn the babble on bablyonians.

I have put into the "Public Domain" a book that proves (by using the Scriptures) that cessationist teaching is not of God. Cessationists do not have the gift of "discernment" Therefore they do not know if a tongues message is from God or not. Pentecostals and Charismatics know whether a tongues-message is fom God or satan. Just as the differnce between drinking muddy water or pure water
---Peter on 8/15/06

On the day of pentecost those in the upper room got the attention of the whole city because of the noise and confusion, they were accused of being drunk and disorderly. Calling the things of God of the devil is blasphemy. He has chosen foolish things to confound the wise and the foolishness of the Cross to save us. Many of you will never Know the secret place of the most High being to orderly to enter in but David knew this place dancing before God in his underwear.

Pat, yes, the devil hates any and everything that is connected with God, Holiness, righteousness, the Blood of Jesus, the Word, The Holy Ghost, God's "true" tongues, etc. he is forever trying to mimick the things of God in a sick and twisted way, but that doesn't give folks an excuse to deny God's "True" manifestations.
---Mrs._Morgan on 7/29/06

People don't "knock" God's "True" Tongues, because the devils has his bag of tricks, some folks just are duped by lucifers false wonders and manifestations, This is one reason the Anti-Christ will fool many, remember pharoh and his bag of tricks?

Thomas, AMEN! Too much "theater" in most churches, folks putting on a production and God isn't the "director". The "True" Holy Ghost does everything decently and in order, the devil creates a "mad house" effect. Churchs must have the Gift of Discernment in operation, so they know what's going on!
---Mrs._Morgan on 7/29/06

The devil is always trying to twist scripture to confuse Christians. He did it with Jesus in the wilderness. See if the devil can make Christians think that speaking in tonuges, a gift from God, is really from the devil, then they won't use it, which plays exactly into the devil's hands. He hates God's gifts!

Jesus Gave peter the keys to the kindom which is the plan of salvation Acts 2-38 go back to Matt 28-19 he was telling his deciples to go to all nation babtizing them in the name of the father son and holy ghost

he had not died yet but he was givin them instrution after he died that was what they was suppose to do
---Betty2 on 7/29/06

Let's not insult God, and say ALL tongues is of the devil, because of the devils counterfeits. Calling the "True" Holy Ghost a devil can lead to Blashphemy of the Holy Ghost , be careful! It's better if people just keep quiet if they are going to make such statements.

R.W. are you a Christian or Hindu? The Bible says to TRY the spirits! Not just any old manifestation is from God. Many Churches don't have the "Gift of Discernment" which is one of the 9 gifts of the Holy Ghost, so anything goes! Folks thinking they have manifestation of the Holy Ghost, but in reality it's the devil. There are "True" Manifestation of the Holy Ghost, and "True" Tongues from God, even in our day among God's clean one's, the Jesus Blood Washed ones.

catholics hindus mormans also speak in tongues: hindus get slain in the spirit (called shakti pat(electricity feeling)). sound familiar. is tongues as used today of The Spirit or a spirit? I say the latter
---r.w. on 7/28/06

There is a difference between "the gift of tongues"(I Corinthians 12) and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues(Acts 19:2-6). They are similar in apperance but different in function. Every born again child of God should go on to receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in tongues, but the "gift of tongues" is something totally different.
---Mrs._Morgan on 7/27/06

Yes, there is a "True" Holy Ghost tongue, on the other hand there are also tongues of devils, and tongues of men. But, God's "True" Holy manifestations must never be mocked, some have blasphemed against the Holy Ghost by mocking God's "True" Miracles and "True" manifestations in the Old and New Testament alike, be careful!

To Donna2277, There have been in these times people that have received the gift of a tongue, but they are few. Many today being fooled. Most christians today believe tongues completely ceased in the first hundred years or so of the establishment of the church. John, where are you?
---Thomas on 3/26/06

Thomas--no, not everyone who claims to be a Christian really is. But that's between them and God. IMO some Christians are led less by faith than feelings, which many preachers encourage. Without emotional stimulaton, they wrongly think the HS isn't at work. Speaking in tongues MAY be emotional, but then again it MAY not! The extreme behavior in some pentecostal churches (and I speak as a pentecostal) understandably frightens many from more sedate churches.Thus it seems "demonic" to them.

Thomas, want to share from my experience with tongues/the Gifts. When a person is Baptised with the Holy Ghost, evidence of tongues and begins to receive the Gifts, it's like a baby learning to crawl and later walk. Although God is perfect,humans aren't, and we must learn how to yield, to allow the HG to move through us. There are showboats,even fakes,but I would say much of it is plain lack of experience in being used by God that way. The longer we minister the easier it is to recognize God's leading.

"how else can we know that we are saved."

We know we are saved by the word of God: 1 John 5:13, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
If you "know you are saved" BECAUSE you speak in tongues this represents a gross misundersanding of what salvation is an what the nature of God is.

2. that is exactly the attitude that is so wrong and what was wrong in the Corinthian Church. Elder made a comment on that. Some of the one's that believe in tongues raise themselves so high they condemn the others. Which is also what the moderator made note of too. I believe what you should do is read the whole book of 1 and 2 Corinthians, and get yourself some commentaries so that you can understand what was going on at the time before you condemn others.

When responding to those hurting on this site, we should simply minister to them and, instead of contending with one another, let that person take the counsel to prayer and give the Holy Ghost the opportunity to bear witness to the truth.

There is hardly any aspect of christianity that does not cause arguement. Try and guess how much arguement existed in Paul's time as to whether christians needed circumcision! You can tell it caused BIG arguements. Tithes, miracles, restitutions, holiness, etc, cause division, but can you blame God for this? The bottom line is that, some will comply and others will contend, let everyman be fully persuaded in his own mind.

John T. If Mormons speak in tongues then it's just their flesh, the same as if you tried to speak Chinese. Tongues, as all the other spiritual gifts are from the Holy Spirit. I don't think the devil is out there dividing his kingdom by edifying the Church. Moderator, thanks for your wisdom.

Have you ever met a Mormon? They pray in tongues, it is one of their fundamental doctrines.

Your answer indicates that 1) tongues is a sign of being saved, and 2) that all tongues speakers are saved. There is NO Scriptural reason to make a statement like those two. By definition, both positions are heretical.

What a laugh! Speaking in tongues from the devil? Of all the unsaved people I know, and I was one of them, I have never met an unsaved person that spoke in tongues. If the devils crowd did it I would have heard it by now. I lived in the world full speed and never met anyone but Christians who spoke in tongues. How about it anyone out there, when you were lost did any of you speak in tongues? That should settle this debate.

Moderator - God's gifts are irrevocable according to Romans. I have heard many of unsaved people speak in tongues as well as saved people. It's the Gift of Discernment and scripture that make it easy to tell the difference. John, we can't believe every sign and wonder in the day we live just think of the One World Religious leader whom will mislead many with signs and wonders.

They have been deceived by the devil. Speaking in tongues comes from the Holy Spirit. John 16:13-14, NIV. "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth.

Spirtiual Gifts are a manifestation of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Some receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and never receive the "gift of tongues", though they may receive one or more, of the other gifts instead. It seems like many, do receive the "gift of tongues" first, but it's probably because it is the least important of all the spiritual gifts. I suggest that you study I Corinthians: Chapter 12 through Chapter 14, for a better understanding of the spiritual gifts.
---MtnDew on 8/20/05

You receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit at the time of salvation. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is different. The evidence of this is speaking in tongues. In order to be saved you do not have to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. You don't have to, you get to.

So, speaking in 'tounges' is like when a person gets SO excited they dont have regular words for it so they just start making noises? I ask this in all respect because I thought tounges was something in the OT, totally different.
---sue on 5/1/05

I actually had more to say that 100 words, I fully believe that tongues in worship should be done with order because tongues are used to edify the church and if they are not interpreted then they are not serving their purpose. No one understands. If is a prayer language then it should be used during the "God-time" that is set apart for a One on one conversation. But like I said before this is just my word, go to the Source for more info.
---Auror3743 on 4/29/05

Well it depends on the tongues. There are two kinds one is prophesy which Corinthians says must be interpreted and the other is a type of prayer language. You must be careful when you are speaking in tongues and you have to read the word and be sure that that your receiving a gift from God.
Because the Bible also speaks of people who say on Judgment day but I spoke in tongues and I raised in Your name and He says Depart from me for I never knew you. If I were you I'd search the Source...pray and study your Bible. God gives us the answers we seek.

The "real" gift of tongue is manifested when a person is given the gift of speaking a real foreign language in order to communicate the gospel(Acts2:4-8)Tongues are mentioned 3 times in the Bible and each time people of other language groups are present. In each case the speaker is understood(intelligent communication/no confusion) and in control of what he/she says. This is a gift from God BUT but when someone speaks and cannot be understood and it is not in a language which can be translated, the source is very suspect!
---Pierre on 4/26/05

Tongues are a gift of God that satan would like to destroy. When he can't find a convincing alternative to deceive people with, he just throws a blanket of fear and confusion over things hoping to discourage as many as possible. Unfortunately, our innate humanity looks after the rest of it.
---CarolT on 4/24/05

i recieved my tongues one month to the day after i was full immersion baptised. i recieved another "set" of tongues a year after that. The heart of the believer cries out to the Lord, our cause is sometimes so overcoming to us in the flesh that we are literally lost for words. the language of Angels and of The Lord is never lost for words, since the Lord creates with words. The Holy Spirit fills us to Overflowing, and the Lord fills us with His Words. Tongues cannot be interpreted by satan, they confuse and confound him.
