Why Speaking in Tongues doesn’t make you a True Christian.

Why Speaking in Tongues doesn’t make you a True Christian. (1Cor 14: 1 – 31)


In our recent, 9 Powerful gift of the Holy Spirit you may not know you possess, we stated that one of the gifts is Speaking in Tongues. Speaking in Tongues is spiritual affair where by you communicate to God alone and only he understands. It is speaking in truth by the Holy Spirit.

Nowadays, most people speak in tongues without connecting to the Holy Spirit; they just come along start speaking in Strange Tongues to the congregation in church, without interpretation of what was spoken.
In the book of 1Corintians 14:5 it quote “it is better you have the gift of proclaiming God’s message. For the person who proclaims God’s message is of greater value than the one who speak in strange tongues. Unless there is someone present who can explain what is said, so that the whole church may be helped”.

From the statement above you will understand that it does not matter how much you speak in tongue, what matters is how much you preach God’s word. Some servants of god force speaking in tongues to prove they are strong or connected. Speaking in tongues is a proof for unbelievers, not for believers, while the gift of proclaiming God’s message is proof for believers nor unbelievers. That is why most people want to go to churches where the head pray in tongues more, perform miracles while speaking in tongues more, than preaching God’s word.

Facts about speaking in Tongues and Proclaiming God’s message.

  1. Those who speak in strange tongues do not speak to others but to God, because no one understands them.
  2. But those who proclaim God’s message speak to people and give them help, encouragement and comfort.
  3. Those who speak in strange tongues help only themselves, but those who proclaim God’s message help the whole church.
  4. The person who proclaims God’s message is of greater value than the one who speak in strange tongues unless there is someone present who can explain what is said.
  5. The person, who speaks in strange tongues, then must pray for the gift to explain what is said.
  6. The gift of Speaking in tongues is proof for unbelievers, not for believers, while the gift of proclaiming God’s message is proof for believers not believers.

So in conclusion, my Brothers and Sisters, set your hearts on proclaiming God’s message, but do not forbid the speaking in strange tongues everything must be in a proper and orderly way.
