i have serious doubts that this 'ability' is Holy Spirit-derived. meaning, my scriptural understanding tells me there is no confusion, and there should be interpretation present, as well as the babbling. in all my life of church-going, there's been no interpretation. its been total yuk-yuk to my ears. my 'discerning' spirit tells me its more of a put-on, and people 'think' they are 'slain in the Spirit', when in fact, its just their emotion and excitement that drives the glossolalia. (of course, one might say i was denying the Spirit, therefore, i wasn't privy to the message. but i would disagree.)
i believe all people have gifts, all of which are natural to that person, but some people hone them for better use, while others ignore them and let the gifts wane. like is often said concerning importance of an object, its what you do with it, that counts.

I believe that like many gifts there are those who have it and those who fake it. Yes, I do believe in speaking in tongues and in the gift of interpretation. I don't think that everyone has the same gifts so no, not everyone can interpret these messages. But, I do think there are some who like to make spectacle of themselves and want the attention, it's the way some people are.

I believe the gift of tongues has three parts, one that's a spiritual laungage that can be said many times and only all spirits can understand which both my mother and I have and goes with our ministries and second the gift of interpretation of tounges which my mother has. Only God can give someone the interpretation of a tongue message that He gave someone else that is only to be spoken once, at that specific time, and the interpretation also will not be repeated again. And then third there is also the gift of known tongues where the person speaking does not know the language but the person being spoken to does. It's all a prophetic gift. I will be more than happy to accept any and all gifts that God will give me or wants me to have.
