My mother was a Pentecost before becoming an Adventist. She raised me up in Pentecost faith. There was a non christian girl in my church who became christian. She initially attended a Pentecost church. Her pastor announced her one day that he is going to anoint her with gift of tongues.
He told her to continuously say ‘Praise the Lord’. While she is saying that he asked her to say it faster. While she is saying faster he told her to bend the tongue. As she started blabbering with her tongue folded he said now you are anointed with ‘Gift of Tongues’
She was not convinced of this experience. Eventually when she was given a bible study by an SDA pastor she became an Adventist.
As I grew I became more concerned about this pentecostal movement as millions of people are deceived by their false gift of Tongues and false miracles.
When I meet these pastors I reasoned with them of their belief from scriptures.
One day I was in my aunts place where there were two pastors shouting and praying with what they believed as gift of tongues. Once the prayer was over I started talking with one of the pastor. While conversing I asked about his children. He informed that his son completed his Bachelors in theology in his hometown and now he is sending him to Bangalore city to learn English.
I asked him why he has to send his son to Bangalore to learn English. Since they have the gift of tongues they can speak English with that. With this question both the pastors were shocked and became dumbfounded.
I told them when apostles were given gift of tongues they were able to speak in languages (tongues) which they don’t know.
I have been to many pentecost church where they employed professional translators to translate the sermon in English and in other languages.
Why none of the pastors can speak in other languages with their gift of tongues.
To know more about true gift of tongues.
