I read in Genesis 11 that the Lord punished mankind for building the tower of Babel: “6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language, they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” Mankind overstepped what God allows. We are again defying God, but our speaking in tongues may not be an unfamiliar language as in Genesis but may very well be in the understanding of the common words spoken.
It is now very obvious that the teaching from Jesus of Divine Life, Truth, and Love means nothing today. Yes, we pray; we attend church; but we do not live in harmony with ourselves or with God. We are glued to the false reality of the power of money. Our leaders are corrupted by money and fail to work for the people they represent. As soon as they finish praying for the murder of little children, they rush out to bow before and lust after the money of politics.
We need to reverse this pandemic of greed and recognize the eternal life-giver. God is our creator and protector; let us speak to Him and listen for His voice in a clear language unencumbered by money. Thou shall have no other gods before me. What is so difficult to understand in this first commandment? This is much stronger than the second amendment.
When we learn the way of God, truly learn, and practice it, we recognize the perfect spirituality of man in God’s Creation. The shining light that led the Israelites through the wilderness still shines for us, to lead us from our homemade wilderness of greed and apathy. Let us call out the Spirit of God in a language all can understand and allow the Spirit to strengthen us with God’s blessings.

One thought on “Speaking in Tongues”
Good post! So many use the speaking in tongues as an excuse not to pray their heart and therefore really never know God.
