Three Major Problems with Speaking in Charismatic Tongues
By David J. Stewart | January 2009
The “tongues” recorded in the Bible are nothing like the “speaking in tongues” practiced today by Pentecostals and Charismatics. There are MAJOR differences:
- No one actually spoke in “tongues” in Acts chapter 2; but rather, the Bible says that every man HEARD in his own language (Acts 2:6). So they actually “heard in tongues.” The only language Peter spoke was Greek. The crowds thought the men were drunk, because they were all amazed; because Peter only spoke ONE language. The miracle was in that every man HEARD in his own NATIVE tongue.
- Tongues in the Bible always involved KNOWN, established, earthly languages. There was never any unknown, jibber-jabber that no one even knew what they were saying as Charismatics do today. Charismatic tongues is of the Devil.
- In the Bible God always initiated the gift of tongues, it wasn't something that men chose where and when to do. Charismatics decide where and when to speak in Charismatic tongues; but it was always God who initiated the miracle in the Bible.
These 3 facts by themselves prove that Charismatic tongues are of the Devil.
