  • We believe the giftof tongues always has someone present who can understand what is being said. Usually it has the specific purpose of sharing the gospel in someone else's native tongue like when Peter taught, and everyone heard it in their native language.

    Sometimes the gift comes quieter, as in someone learning another language with extraordinary speed and accuracy. A chinese girl once told me the only white guys she ever heard speak perfect Chinese were missionaries, and she was amazed that they only had two months of formal language training...the gift of tongues helped them teach her the gospel.

  • I have been to some that do and some that don't. I believe there are real instances and some fakers out there, but that goes along with anything in life.

  • I have not been to church in awhile and don't really identify with any particular denomination, but I have been to all kinds of churches. I am not comfortable with people speaking in tongues. I understand why they say they do it, but it makes no sense to me. If they are being filled with the Holy Spirit, why don't other churches do it? And why can the pastor "supposedly" interpret this message afterward?
