“Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my
understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten
thousand words in an unknown tongue.”
1 Corinthians 14:19
I was a tongue talker Pentecostal believer and preacher.
For 40 years I was hooked in that sect,the tongue talking Spirit filled church goers,BUT I did NOT know what Paul teaches concerning The Revelation of The Mystery.
I admit it,I was ignorant of the word of Truth rightly divided and sadly very much into visions,mystical experiences,and I thought I had it all figured out.
I would pray in tongues,sing in tongues,worship in tongues and I was DECEIVED.
What I thought and believed were tongues supernaturally given by The Holy Ghost of God ,were in fact a creation of my fantasy,and looking back at my Pentecostal past,I am so very grateful that studying the word rightly divided has helped me to see the errors and five years into the sound Pauline doctrine has truly changed my total understanding of what Te Holy Ghost of God is doing in this Dispensation of Grace,and "tongues" are NOT a gift neither a manifestation of God,but surely a work of the flesh and are in fact anything but tongues,but vain babblings.
I do not want offend those who still are hooked in The Tongues Movement,
but as an ambassador FOR Christ I preach the Gospel of Grace,so I would encourage anyone to abandon Religion and receive believing it the Glorious Gospel of Grace that saves us now and TRUST what God revealed in His word.
1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
1 Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1 Corinthians 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
