As the gift of tongues is from God, how can someone "learn how to do it"?My brother is a Pentecostal. One phone conversation I had with him 5 years ago, he said "I've just learnt to speak in tongues. Here , I will do it for you now."
He proceeded to babble in a language I've never heard before. It was kind of disturbing. I didn't know what to think. It sounded demonic tbh.
But what he also told me was that there was a competitive spirit amongst Pentecostals. If you don't speak in tongues, you don't rate as a serious Christian?
