Whether you speak in tongues or not, the topic of tongues is a very controversial topic and its a topic you have probably found yourself talking about one way or the other!
It has even caused so much division within the church which should not be. The fact is whether you speak in tongues or not, it does not hinder you from going to heaven. That means if as a christian, your church does not believe in tongues, it doesn’t negate the requirement of Romans 10:10 about the prerequisite for getting saved.
So yes, speaking in tongues does not take anybody to heaven but does that mean it is not necessary? The fact is a believer should have no worry about heaven or hell because its clear where we are going as believers.
So we dont do anything as believers based on “heaven or hell” anymore. Its about edification. This understanding will change how you see things in the kingdom but this is a topic for another day.
The question for today is, Is speaking in tongues really biblical and is it necessary for today?
Lets open the bible.
Contrary to popular belief, the issue of “speaking in tongues” was not first mentioned in the book of Acts. Jesus talked about it in Mark 16:17, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Jesus already said it before he died.
Some people might say “but Jesus did not speak in tongues” yes he did not because the power of the holyghost in this form was only meant to come AFTER Jesus’ death.
