TONGUES: The Orbit of the Controversy

Released December 22, 2020 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


Finally! We get to dive into the ever-controversial gift of Tongues. In this first session about tongues, we explore the three times tongues are mentioned in the Book of Acts. Many who struggle with the gifts of the Holy Spirit still being valid do so because they have a biblical misunderstanding of the gift of tongues. Are tongues known languages? If so, which of the 20,000 historical languages/dialects are tongues given? What is meant by "the tongues of angels"? Have we in the Church possibly educated ourselves out of experiencing this gift? The book of Acts may help show us that we have placed upon the gift of tongues some forms of validation that actually are not found in the Bible? In this episode, Jeff begins to teach several sessions on the need for us to understand this amazing gift of the Spirit. Each of these sessions on tongues will help the listener be equipped to understand the gift, desire the gift, properly use the gift and help others experience this gift. We need to value the gift of tongues to the same degree that God does!   Topics: tongues, baptism of the Spirit, laying on off hands, mighty rushing wind, tongues of fire, cessationism More resources from Jeff Lyle are available at Reference: 1 Corinthians 14:1-5
