I believe the Gift of Tongues is indeed still in operation in the Body of Christ today.
I am a former Pentecostal/Charismatic, and I used to speak in tongues a lot. I have not felt the need or inspiration to do so in many years, though.
I no longer believe that speaking in tongues is the "outward physical sign" of the "Baptism in the Holy Spirit". Neither do I believe in a "second definite work of Grace that is subsequent to and in addition to salvation" called "the Baptism in the Holy Spirit" in which the believer is empowered with Spiritual Gifts.
The scriptures teach that we all get the Holy Spirit and are "Baptized in the Spirit" at the moment of salvation, and that ALL born again believers have Spiritual Gifts.
bob>I think Paul was saying "some get the gift to preach, some teach, some heal, some miracles, some tongues, some interpret. The apostles got the "Full Measure" of the Holy Spirit, which means all the gifts. What do you think?
Tongues should be used sparingly, and if it is used in a church service, there should be an Interpretation offered as well.
Otherwise it is out of order.
bob>I joined a church where tongues were a main part of their service, everyone in the church was to speak in tongues at the same time and then one or two would stand up and give the interpretation. I think some get tongues, not everyone and it's not a requirement of salvation.
