My Spiel on Tongues
If you speak in tongues at your congregation, just consider these questions for a moment--that's all I ask!
(1) Categorization: How do you differentiate the genuine gift of speaking in tongues from, say, a counterfeit (e.g. Satanic) version of speaking in tongues? I.E. what criteria do you use to make sure that speaking in tongues is not actually some sort of demonic influence?
(2) Causation: Are you aware that people are leaving because this gift is abused (e.g. when people speak more than one at a time--see 1 Cor. 14:27)? Do you care what happens to them?
