In terms of faith building (Jude 20) and
praying the perfect will of God (Romans 8:26-27), much good comes from praying
in the Holy Ghost (tongues).
 Paul clearly did not discourage
speaking in tongues. How could he when he just boasted that he spoke in tongues
more than anyone? Yet some persist in missing the point that this chapter of
Paul’s letter is meant to address motives and method. It is not meant to
disparage the gift. Those who oppose the gift of tongues, tend to do away
with the gifts of the Holy Spirit altogether by teaching that they were only
for the early church, but that teaching is not found in this chapter, nor anywhere
else in scripture.
