The spiritual gift of tongues is a frequent topic for questions on our radio program. Recently, a listener asked if tongues is a private prayer language.
Tongues is a controversial and challenging subject for many. While it would be easier to avoid the topic, I believe we need to take a sincere look at what the New Testament says about the nature, purpose, and audience for this gift.
In this short video clip, I share what the Bible says about tongues, the difference between praying in tongues and praying in the Spirit, and the importance of building our belief system, not on personal experiences, but instead on the Scriptures.
