Re: Speaking in tongues.

. . . These new converts had no idea what they were saying and the indians they were speaking too had to translate back to them what they were saying. Indians ended up getting saved as a result of this. He says they were "saved", but does he give any details how he judges this? Can he see into thei...

Re: Speaking in tongues.

Acts 2 gives no indication that the converts on the Day of Pentecost spoke in tongues. In all my years of talking to people about the bible I have never seen such a bare-faced lie!!

Re: Speaking in tongues.

Re: Where do I go from here?

A bit of my life story before I get to the question; bear with me. After reading CS Lewis' book "Mere Christianity", I came to fall in love with Christianity, or at least the idea of it, . . . Hi! I can give you an answer that worked for me, so it should work for you as God has no favourites. I too...
