Todd describes the biblical gift of tongues and lays out the scriptural bases for why speaking in an unknown devotional "tongue" as evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit or as a private devotional language is: 1) not normative; 2) not necessary; 3) not neverending; 4) not nurturing; and 5) not a new form of private prayer. Also discussed is the proper use of spiritual gifts for the common good and edifying others.
Anita Speaking & Praying in Tongues by the Holy Spirit - The baptism of the Holy Spirit is an extraordinary gift given to us from the Father through His Son Jesus Christ. The evidence of being fully submerged, baptized in fire is the evidence of this gift called tongues. It is a heavenly language given to us by the Holy Spirit in our born again spirit and is available to all who ask.
Praying in tongues, or praying in the Holy Spirit, gives us the ability to pray perfect prayers. When we pray in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, we are not bound by our thoughts, our feelings, our emotions or our biases.

You were just saying yesterday that we couldn't make it work. Please make up your mind. I don't know what to think anymore and I'm tired of playing games. Either you want me or you don't.

So what is it? by judith
