Q. How do I handle women who tell me they pray in tongues? I know these 3 women who think that this spiritual gift should be sought after and that it is a sign of a higher spiritual walk.
A. I would suggest you brush up on 1 Cor. 14 where Paul took the Corinthians to task for that very thing. Since the Holy Spirit has already given every believer one or more gifts (1 Cor. 12:7) I do believe it’s important to find out what our gifts are. They were given to help us make our unique contribution to the body of Christ. Paul was clear in saying that there’s no greater spirituality in one gift than another, but there is great spiritual fulfillment to be found in exercising our particular gift, whatever it is.
