While the gift of languages was truly held by some early Christians, the gift has now passed; Christians no longer get the gift of tongues. As a result, spiritual talents, such as the gift of languages, have vanished. However, we still have everything we need to communicate with each other spiritually. The Bible makes it clear that the spiritual gifts have been given by God, not man. Therefore, no Christian should claim or exercise them himself/herself.
Everything in the assembly had to be done properly and in order for the edification of the Christians gathering (1 Corinthians 14:27,28,40). However, we still have other gifts that are just as important today as they were when the church first began. We need all the help we can get with issues such as emotional healing, faith restoration, and even miracles today just like they needed at the time of the first century.
In conclusion, tongues is no longer a spiritual gift but it never stopped being important. It is still used by God today just as it was in the beginning so there is no reason why he would stop giving it.
The gift of languages is not given to every Christian. After receiving the Holy Spirit, it appears that all 12 of John's followers spoke in tongues. This confirms the notion that speaking in tongues is proof of Holy Spirit baptism. Before becoming a Christian, Paul never spoke in tongues. But after his conversion, he immediately began to speak in tongues as he was being persecuted for his beliefs.
Does this mean that everyone who speaks in tongues is fully baptized in the Holy Spirit? No, Jesus' disciples failed to keep this promise when they left Him (see Luke 24:49-53). There are still many signs that identify true Christians, such as love for God and others, faith in Christ, and walking according to His commands.
"Tongues were delivered to the founding generation of the church as a sign to justify their message," he explained. "We feel languages are no longer required now that the New Testament has been completed." He claims that the New Testament contains the whole revelation of God and that, as a result, languages are no longer required. However, many scholars believe that Paul actually wrote at least some of his letters while traveling on horseback because they contain vocabulary that only comes up in frontier villages. This suggests that there were people around who could understand him, but he didn't write in code because there weren't enough towns along his route for it to be practical.
Mormons also don't speak in tongues because it's against the law to do so in most countries. In America, it's considered witchcraft and many Christians think it's a sign of being under the power of evil spirits.
Finally, Mormons don't speak in tongues because it's a practice reserved for early Christians. They believe that Jesus resurrected himself from the dead by speaking English, not Latin or French or any other language.
Everyone who receives the baptism (God filling this person with himself) of the Holy Spirit, on the other hand, obtains the gift of languages. Not everyone who receives the Holy Spirit baptism (God filling this person with himself) speaks in languages. Some believers speak in languages as a result of their faith while others do not.
People can speak in languages they have never learned, called "spiritual languages". This happens when someone believes strongly in God and his son Jesus Christ so much that he is able to talk with people who are miles away from each other in time and place. He may have conversations in English with someone in England while another believer in India talks with him in French. Both parties understand what the other is saying because they are talking about God and Jesus Christ.
Some Christians believe that everyone who calls on the name of Jesus will receive healing from their physical ailments. Others say that only those who have been baptized into Jesus' death can expect such blessings. Still others say that since we are all equal in God's eyes, no one should be healed against their will. These are some of the many different opinions that exist within the body of Christ today.
In general, however, most Christians believe that people who have been saved through faith in Jesus Christ will also receive the gift of languages if they accept it.
