Who Said That?

"Speaking in tongues is as normal to me as, 'Pass the salt.'  A lot of religions use meditation or chanting.  It's a secret, direct prayer language to God.  My dad speaks in tongues and my mom interprets it.  That's their gift . . . .  I wasn't ever able to say I was 'lucky' because my mother would rather us say that we were blessed, and she also didn't like that lucky sounded like Lucifer.  'Deviled eggs were called 'angeled' eggs."

Sounds like a country singer. The southern sound of the language used and the almost flip tone makes me think this was a country singer during an interview. Wild guess, Dolly Parton?

It wouldn't surprise me if it's Paul and Jan Crouch's son. I can't remember his name, but it sounds like some of the nuttiness you hear on TBN.

Comment on the deviled eggs reminds me of a former parishioner who was incensed that there could be a product called a Dirt Devil.

Definitely Katy Perry.

Just thinking more on this, if the above is true, and said person did say that and can speak in tongues like that, what does it mean for the authenticity/validity of the tongues we see spoken today? I ask because I have never had this gift, and have in fact been told I am unsaved because of it..and it has been a source of real pain to me over the years...and yet from the quote someone who doesn't appear to be saved does have it and can use it at will..whenever..regardless of faith etc..sorry for asking!

Hello loved:

It pains me to hear that someone told you that you are unsaved because you do not speak in tongues. I, too, have been told the same. All my friends had the gift of tongues but I did not.

If you read 1 Corinthians 12 you see that only some have the gift of tongues, while others have other gifts. But the same Spirit is behind them all!

The gifts are for the common good of the church not a sign of salvation. The fruit of the Spirit is the sign of salvation. You will know them by their fruit!

Katy Perry.

I remember reading, somewhere, of her being raised in a Pentecostalist household.

Thank you Andrew, it was very kind of you to answer..I can live with it now (ish) but it still hurts at times, I do not believe they meant any ill by it though, I don't blame them. God bless :)

If that was the kind of "faith" expressed in the home of Katy Perry, no wonder she left to pursue such a nasty act.

loved though unlovely and Andrew -

You are both Christians because you place your trust in Christ. You speak english (which is a tongue).

Tongues are various languages, not ecstatic babbling. Luther on tongues, "St. Paul refers to 'speaking in tongues,' which is nothing else than reading Scripture orally."

So, read the Scriptures orally in english. That will "get 'er done." Rejoice! You have the gift!

My guess.......Kenneth Copeland.
