Yes speaking in tongues exists today. (Pentecostal Viewpoint)
No speaking in tongues does not exist today. It stopped after the Word of God was created. (Baptist Viewpoint)
Yes, but after the original event it became a gift given only to a few or in certain moments. Just like visions.
my best friend has done it multiple times with different languages. its one of her spiritual gifts!
Yes. The whole book of Acts never ended and people today still speak in tongues. As said in Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." if you follow God's plan of Repentance and Getting baptized in Jesus name then you WILL receive the gift.
I believe it's the gift of being able to pick up a language quickly, or at least be able to understand the gist of what another person is saying. People wonder how elders and sister missionaries at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) learn a foreign language in a few weeks- there's your answer, gift of tongues.
My own parents have spoken in tongues, it is also a gift that the Holy Spirit gives to his followers.
its retarded but it is done
Psychedelics cause glossolalia(speaking in tongues).Religious frenzy is the same. so yes
yes, I've been to a service where everyone, Congregation of 1000 people in the large church spoke in tongues. It was also a televised service. Our friend not only spoke in tongues but also has fallen to the floor in the alter call.
No, because this is an example of a sign gift which was only used to preach the Gospel during the apostle's time since there was no Word of God. The sign gifts (such as performing miracles, speaking in tongues, and prophesying) have vanished once the word of God was created. 1 Corinthians 13:8-12, Paul tells us that the Lord had revealed to him that these gifts would cease some day. And they did, because in the letters written after the Book of Acts, the sign gifts had ceased, just as the Lord said that they would.
Bible tongues were a gift to the apostles and their hearers. Seeking this gift today overlooks its persons, promise, and purpose (Mark 16:14-17; Heb 2:3-4). The gift of tongues was the property of the apostles and those under their ministries (Acts 8:14-17; 10:44-48; 19:1-7). Unless some of those original disciples are nearly 2000 years old, there is no legitimate gift of tongues here today.
The spiritual gift of tongues was not intended for this age. The three Pastoral Epistles, directing ministers how to take care of the church of God, do not contain a single word about spiritual gifts, especially speaking in tongues (Verses for this: I Timothy 3:15, II Timothy 3:16-17, and Titus 1:5). With the overwhelming emphasis on tongues above anything else in Charismatic circles, this conspicuous silence is very condemning.
Because the Gift of Tongues was an Apostolic Gift, it died along with the apostles. In this day an age, "Tongues" is really just babbling, which becomes rather demonic than anything that is Godly.
