This may have already been posted somewhere, (if it is -we can delete this) I just thought I'd like your opinion on this.

''Speaking in Tongues - Medical Study proves Holy Spirit praying'' - That's the name of the 'study', but I personally don't see where they have proven that it's the 'holy spirit.' It's more of a study on what it (speaking in tongues) does to the brain.

I can still speak in tongues anytime I want.

 

Robin Williams can speak in tongues that sounds like different languages, like Russian, French, Swedish, Japanese, etc, and he was never "baptized in the holy spirit."

So called "speaking in tongues" or ecstatic speech (glossolalia) predates the invention of Christianity. In fact, Christians didn't embrace the practice until 1901. Where was that Christian Holy Spirit prior to that year?

Busy manifesting amongst Pagan (and other non-Christian) ecstatic worshipers.

Missed a connection in Atlanta.

 

I used to get into trouble in church as a child, Each of the "blessed" had their own pet "tongues" phrases, and I would speak with them, much to my mother's chagrin.

I can't watch that but I remember speaking in tongues. I didn't like it though, so I asked god if it was right, opened a random page in the bible and pointed to verse and it said 'stop babbling'. That kind of thing happened a couple of times and held me in Christianity for years.

Ummm That's because it IS russian, french swedish, etc.

 

He would do that the f with the censors, until they got wise and had translators on payroll.

 

Now few would bother.

Ah, where would we be without the intrepid Saul of Tarsus - bless him and all that sail in him.

 

Frankly the mere suggestion of speaking in tongues is so ludicrous that I am amazed that I never saw it before! Only Christianity could by pass the intellect to utter such gibberish and call it the tongues of angels. The whole essence of this is insulting. The beauty of the Not Testament is that take one card out and the whole collapses in a heap like a pack of cheap playing cards. Yes the whole essence of this is cheap, degrading and frankly moronic.

P.S. I'll tell you guys later - I'm in too much shock right now!

I can to Ouroboros! Very fluently! I guess there would be nothing wrong with using it as a form of meditation to calm the brain down? Why let a good 'gift' go? I mean certain people 'chant' don't they? What do you think?

Tongues can be put to far better use than waffling and gibberish, some say. that done, correctly, an "Oh my god" religious experience may be achieved - it however (only) takes two to play this game :grin:

I figured the whole 'speaking in tongues' thing was bunk the moment I realized I could will myself into doing so.

I speak in tongues. I'm a language constructor as one of my weird hobbies, and speaking in tongues helps me to figure out how I want to make a language sound and how I should design it. That a way i'm not making words that are unpronounceable or that sound horrible. It usually ends up sounding like english-latin-hebrew-sumerian-spanish-arabic-german-russian.

Totally. Tongues/ecstatic worship is yet another thing Christianity doesn't have a corner on. If it feel right, go for it.

I could speak in tongues before I ever heard that there was such a thing in Christianity. When I was exposed to it in Charismatic circles I was just a bit skeptical about it. I remember somebody saying to me "You have a beautiful prayer language, brother"

 

Scientific studies of the phenomenon of Glossolalia have shown that it is devoid of the complexity that would indicate a viable language - in fact it is just what it sounds like -gibberish.

I often wonder if anyone has ever had these 'Tongues' deciphered by a language specialist and if the 'words' actually have meaning?:scratch:

This has been done. Linguists say that tongues do not follow language patterns.

No! You of course need to be in the zone aka under the influence of said holy spook to understand/interpret the tongues.

 

What is really doff (our word here for dumb) is that this omni frigging gawd has to resort to a language we do not understand to tell us some important thing (not to mention he needs the oratory skills and mechanisms of a human larynx and tongue and lips to proclaim this message) instead of just booming out a big voice form the sky in plain whatever the language is you speak. Why is this gawd so elusive and feels it needs to communicate with us outside of the the 5 senses it allegedly gave us in the first place?

 

Aah I forgot, no one can look upon the face of gawd and live. Pretty fucked up as WTF are all his sheeple going to do in heaven while singing eternal praises 4eva and eva? Wear blinders? Sunglasses?

 

According to the OT, we can taste him. We never hear him cause the moses folk decided for us that they no longer wanted the boom box in teh sky and preferred to being lied to by ole moses and his bro. We cannot touch that which does not exist. Have no idea what gawd smells like :shrug: they say the debbul smells like shit, I wouldn't know. I guess that is who leaves the smells in my toilet. Pretty cool that a $20 extractor fan gets rid of the debbul in a mere 60 seconds :HaHa:

 

Yeah, it all makes perfect sense if you really ponder it? :grin:

 

Actually, Ray forget his surname, runs bible-truths.com has challenged the woo woos to interpret tongues which he even calls BS on. No one has picked up the challenge yet. Cause 5 folk from 5 different locations worldwide need to interpret 100% the same.
