Nr. 6: Is it right to speak publicly in tongues?

Question 6:

Is it right to speak publicly in tongues or singing in a choir together in tongues as one does today in the Pentecostal charismatic churches, without to be interpreted?


To sing in tongues and speaking in tongues for their own edification is an important gift. Priceless, I say. To be baptized in the Holy Spirit is a gift given to all believers and the gift of speak in tongues comes with a biblical baptize in spirit.

Acts 2. 1When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tonguesa as the Spirit enabled them.

But together with others or in official, it is also clear how the regulations should be and go forward. No one should not speak nor sing in tongues without being interpreted.

1. Corinthians 14. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret.

But if God comes to meet a person or a community, we will not prevent it. And there is a difference even when a "new baptized" is a bit too keen and when you put things in the system and the choir director of worship where one sings in tongues. There is a derailment of the gift. We need to know and follow the biblical way.

1. Tess. 5:19, Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; 20, do not treat prophecies with contempt.

We shall not prevent either the gift of prophecy nor tongues. But it should be decent for one at a time speaking or singing in tongues. And it is indicated. If it is not indicated, an even more tie it or put and use the gift of tongues for their own edification.

1. Cor. 14:28 ,If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and God.
