5.35 Speaking in Tongues Today

Similar to miracle healings, demonic possession, and “snake handling”, the gift of speaking in tongues was localized to the early apostolic church period, where this capability/gift was given at times and places through the power of the Holy Spirit to early apostles to help the early church grow rapidly, and also as a sign of the apostolic authority, derived from Jesus Christ. There is no scriptural basis whatsoever that speaking in tongues occurs today. Those that claim to practice this today do not even do so in accord with Scripture (i.e. providing interpretation coincident with the tongue speaking); this all just adds up to simply make them hypocrites on top of deceivers. Furthermore, the languages spoken were not made up of gibberish or “alien” utterings as is often contended, the tongues spoken were simply other human languages of man, in order to help the gospel message spread to people groups beyond the initial Jewish Christians. Much like the “Nephilim” nonsense and fantasies of man, the tongues were not languages of “alien beings”; oftentimes the fantasies and superstitions of man knows almost no bounds.
