Foundations: Pt 6 The Holy Spirit, Tongues and Interpretation.
Things can get messy when we start entering into the realm of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in public, but the mess and sometimes improper use should never lead us to relegate the gifts to the sidelines. As dysfunctional as the Corinthian church was, Paul wasn’t telling them to stop, he was giving boundaries that were healthy. Part of that is understanding what Paul was teaching by way of correction. What is the gift of tongues that Paul is describing in 1 Corinthians 12-14? Is it the same gift we see released on the believers on the day of Pentecost? How do we use this in our own private devotional life, and more importantly, how do we use this gift in the corporate life of the church? And after all of that, what about interpretation?
