    Of course I have spoken in tongues. To quote a much lamented character "I spake"

    Until recently, I had always supposed what was handed down to me through various teachers was correct, and that being that tongues had ceased. I believe differently today.

    When I first became a Christian I totally believed in speaking in tongues. Then I became an "unbeliever" in tongues,. Now I am in the "I don't know" camp.

    The spiritual gifts of 1Cor 12 are for today and we are to "desire EARNESTLY spiritual gifts" according to 1 Cor 14:1.

    Rather than finding reasons to ignore the text - maybe we should accept it.

    Having said that - the tongues seen today is not the tongues of the Bible.

    IN Christ,

    Bob

    My experience was in line with 1 Corinthians 14:2.

    Toungues are definatley for today, Yet they are to be applied in the Biblical manner with full interpretation or it should not happen.

    We have an unwritten by-law in my church:

    Nobody will interpert unknown tongues.

    This keeps Bible readers from speaking in

    I think God can still use tongues if He so desires today; but at the same time i don't see proper usage of the gift when i attend churches that practice this or when i turn on TBN (especially on the latter).

    I'm firmly convinced that tongues are not of God, for today.

    I am convincd that the cessationist heresy is a made up doctrine.

    Sorry Ben, you can sleep in a garage but it doesn't make you a car. That 'Pentacostal Free Will Baptist' group can call themselves anything they want but they aren't true Baptists.

    How about the Southern Baptist Convention churches that have speaking in Toungues, are they Baptist?

    Here is a link to Bro Ron Phillips ministry, his church Central Baptist is SBC, and he is a SBC minister, yet here is what his website has to say about his Pentecostal Ministry.

    - Pastor Ron Phillips has a unique gift of making complex biblical truths easy to understand. His ministry brings a balance to both evangelicals and charismatics as he operates in the gifts of the Spirit, while firmly holding to the Word of God. Ron Phillips is the Senior Pastor of Central Baptist Church of Hixson, Tennessee.

    That's why I posted it the "Other" forum. Figured I'd get some response from folks in other denoms.

    There is no resolution in the southern Baptist Convention that would forbid Speaking in tongues. If there were, it would be non binding because each Southern Baptist church is autonomous.
    If it were binding it would be unbiblical since the two words "FORBID NOT" are the biblical response to the subject.

    The command to Moses to take off his shoes for he was on holy ground; does that apply to you atestring?
    Neither does the command "Forbid not to speak in tongues," which was written to the Corinthians, not to us, (that is first century Christians), when the gift was still operative. I don't see any evidence today of this gift being in operation Biblically.
