So here’s the bottom line. If it’s gibberish to you the speaker, it’s probably gibberish to everyone else, including God. Many of you know you’re making it up as you go. Stop. Claiming to speak in tongues is like claiming to be a prophet when you’re not one. You speak nonsense because you want to, because you’ve seen others do it, and it’s easy to imitate.
If you’re actually moved by the Holy Ghost to speak in tongues, then do so. 1 Corinthians 14 tells us it’s possible, but it also says to pray for interpretation, and from what I’ve seen on television, interpretation is rare. In fact it says in 1 Corinthians 14:28 KJV, But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
