A Biblical Examination of Pentecostalism 3


Just a couple more, I promise.

Pentacostal Objection #2 – “What about all those people who were saved in Acts? Every one of them spoke in tongues afterwards?”

No. There are only three recorded times anyone spoke in tongues. And there is no record of those people speaking in tongues AFTER that.

The Phillipian Jailor did not speak in tongues after he was saved.

The Eunuch in the chariot did not speak in tongues.

Only the disciples of John, the Apostles themselves, and Cornelius the Centurion and his household. That was it.

There is no record of Cornelius speaking in tongues ever again.

Or the Apostles of John.

As a matter of fact, only Paul is recorded as pseaking in tongues after Acts. And then only during one of his first books, 1 Corinthians.

And its plain that Paul championed love and doctrine FAR above tongues speaking.

Pentacostal Objection #3

“The Bible says the sprit would testify and we will bear witness.”

Good point! How are you going to bear witness if you’re speaking in a language you don’t understand? And the person who you’re babbling at has no earthly idea what you’re saying?

19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. 1 Corinthians 14:19 (KJV)

Like, “Jesus died for your sins.”

Seminary graduate with a Ba. in Theology/Pastoral Studies, Happily married, Independent Baptist. I can't keep silent about what I see going on in Christianity any longer! Apostasy reigns around us, churches are sliding into worldiness, a whitewashed Gospel is preached everywhere... "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) So, I'm speaking out. ...Why aren't you???
