Speaking in Tongues

Biblical Tongues Versus Silly Jibber-Jabber

Twenty Differences Between
Acts 2 and 1st Corinthians Tongues

There has been much confusion concerning the tongues issue. We are admonished to compare Scripture with scripture to see the truth on any issue. (1sr Corinthians 2:13)

My friend, there are TWO DIFFERENT TONGUES mentioned in the Bible. The confusion comes when people try to make them one and the same.

Please get a Bible and look up these verses for yourself. The Bible says that we are to "prove all things." (1st Thessalonians 5:21).

I made this chart to help, adding a few things. I couldn't add anymore, to fit the chart...


Nowhere in Acts do you find the term "Baptism of the Holy Ghost" in connection with speaking in tongues.

The baptism of the Holy Ghost is related to salvation and not tongues (1st Corinthians 12:13).

There is NO command in the Bible to speak with unknown tongues.

A person who does not have the Holy Spirit is not saved (Romans 8:9 and 1st John 4:13).

A wicked generation seeks a sign (Matthew 12:39).

The tongues movement of today is NOT Acts 2 tongues, but the CARNAL tongues of 1st Corinthians.

The tongues of the Bible (in both Acts and 1 Corinthians) were always understandable, known, established, earthly, languages; not indiscernible sounds and utterances as used by the Charismatic Movement today in modern times.

God always initiated the miracle of tongues in the Bible, not men (Acts 2 and 10). In sharp contrast, men initiate the false tongues spoken in Pentecostal churches today.

The gift of tongues in 1st Corinthians was simply the usage of known languages, which some didn't understand, so Paul told them not to speak in foreign languages in multi-lingual congregations unless an interpreter is present. Notice that the gift of tongues in 1st Corinthians is different than the miracle of tongues in Acts 2. In Acts 2 Peter spoke in Greek, but at least 16 different nations heard each man in his own language.

Speaking in Tongues is NOT Proof of Salvation | Charismatic Chaos!

Monsters Are Real!!

Fake Charismatic Healing

Jeremiah 30:17, “For I will restore health unto thee,
and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD...”
