Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Is The Gift Of Tongues Available To The Church Today?

Posted by Job on March 1, 2009

This pastor relies on 1 Corinthians 13:8 to make his case, but in doing so he leaves out the vital information in 1 Corinthians 13:9-10! So, I am still awaiting a convincing case for cessationism using the Bible in context to be made. However, this pastor does make a credible – and formidable – point on the issue that “glossolia” means “language” and “dialect” as opposed to “ecstatic utterance unintelligble in any language.” The private prayer language and other ecstatic utterance advocates need other Bible texts to justify the practice, Romans 8:26 perhaps.

    A gift is given by the Giver.

    It’s up to God who gets what gifts.

    St. Paul tells us that the important thing about the gifts is the USE of them.

    There are 2 kinds of tongues

    a. “New tongues” is described in 1Cr 14:2: For he that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understands [him]; howbeit in the spirit he speaks mysteries.

    b. “other tongues” is described in (Acts 2:4) where the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language (Acts 2:6)

    So “new tongues” was meant for private communication with God, and “other tongues” was meant for preaching the gospel to people of other languages.
