Why Do I Believe in Tongues and Prophecy?

The first thing I’d like to mention is that I think our culture has abused the Gifts of the Spirit BIG TIME. Many of us, if we are familiar with these gifts, automatically associate them with what we have seen on television.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all (1 Cor. 12:7). Can you imagine what it might have been like on the Day of Pentecost? Hearing a rushing wind, you look around to see tongues of fire upon each person assembled with you. Then as soon as you're filled with God's Spirit you begin speaking in other languages.

Pentecost: A Miracle of Hearing

When the believers were asked, "What's going on here?" Peter responded with great boldness.
