Based on Malachi 3:16-18 I believe the Lord will harken to us as we consider his word together.
It is hard to be balanced in the truth. Speaking in tongues is promoted to the heavens by the Pentecostals, and condemned as demonic by the Fundamentalists. The Apostle Paul neither promoted nor condemned speaking in tongues, but he did promote prophesying.
1 Corinthians 14:5 I desire that you all speak in tongues, but especially that you would prophesy; and greater is he who prophesies than he who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, that the church may receive building up.
My feeling at this point is that I do not feel comfortable condemning something that is in the Scriptures, not do I have any desire to promote speaking with tongues. There are better ways to exercise our spirit and drink from the fountain of Life for the building up of the Body of Christ.
Bible forums seem to attract those who are on a crusade of some kind. O, that we were all hungry to know the Living God!
Psalm 42:1-2 As the hart pants After the streams of water, So my soul pants For You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, For the living God. When will I come and appear before God?
