QUESTION: "I've heard some believers say speaking in tongues (SIT) as a spiritual gift is not for every Christian to manifest. I'd like to know your thoughts on that."


Pastor's response...

ANSWER: "Believers who say SIT is not for all Christians are either deceived or ignorant of scripture Many times they are referring to the scripture that said "do all speak with tongues?"1 Cor 12:30 What Apostle Paul meant in that scripture is one of the nine gifts of the spirit- diversities of tongues! Read I Corinthian 14:1-end. Speak with tongues is different from 'pray' with tongues! All believers should be able to pray with tongues, but not all believers will be able to give a message with tongues! Your would quickly realize that there is a tongue for prayer to God (God-ward) 1Corinthians 14:2 And there is a tongue that brings a message to people 1 Corinthians 14:27-28 One is under you control and you can pray with it as long as you want (SIT) The other is as the spirit of God wills, 1 Corinthians 12:11 this is what paul meant that not all believers have the function of giving the message in tongues in an assembly So all believers should be able to pray with tongues Mark 16:17 "
