Does 1 Corinthians 14 prohibit speaking in tongues as seen in many non-denom charistmatic churches? The people seem to babble with out any ‘order’ to their words/noises (there doesn’t seem to be any ‘structure’ to the ‘language’) and then someone claims to interpret what they said…it happens every week at the church that I was invited to.
My wife has friends in a charismatic church, and I’m not really sure what to say about it. I’m a cradle Catholic, and my Wife recently converted just last Easter (was a S.Baptist)…She’s very new to Catholocism, and her RCIA teacher was very nice; but not very knowledgable. And our priest is kind of a sour-puss who dismisses a lot of questions…
Part of the problem is that they tried to ‘coach’ her into doing it herself while she was a protestant, and her friends told her that it would ‘come to her’ if she was a true believer. They still talk to her about it once in a while, and are constantly riding her about her conversion.
Any help would be great,
