Do all speak in tongues?

Tongue speaking in most churches today has become a disturbing phenomenon, so much so that some genuine servants of God are now wondering if some of these pastors, who make a public “show” of it, have not read the scripture, about tongue speaking, or have read it but do not understand, what the Holy Spirit says about tongue speaking.

Believers in Christ must understand the fact that these tongues, whether of men or of angels, are mere gifts of the Holy Spirit, like any other gifts of the Holy Spirit, which differ from one another in administration, as written in 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-10. And in VERSES 29-30, Apostle Paul questioned, and I quote, ‘’Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers?

Are all workers of miracles? Have all the gift of healing? DO ALL SPEAK IN TONGUES? DO ALL INTERPRET? It is clear, therefore, that not all believers in christ have the gift of speaking in tongues.

And even those who have the gift of speaking in tongues are advised, in 1 CORINTHIANS 14:13, to pray that they may be able to interpret, otherwise if they cannot interpret,  or if there is no other, in the church, to interpret, then such believers in Christ are warned to keep silence in the church, as written in 1 CORINTHIANS 14:28, and I quote, “BUT IF THERE IS NO INTERPRETER, LET HIM KEEP SILENCE IN THE CHURCH; AND LET HIM SPEAK TO HIMSELF AND TO GOD.”

Otherwise, if the unlearned or unbelievers, come into the church, and hear them speak in an unknown tongue, which they do not understand, they will say they are mad, as we can read in 1 CORINTHIANS 14:23, and I quote, “IF THEREFORE, THE WHOLE CHURCH COME TOGETHER INTO ONE PLACE, AND ALL SPEAK WITH TONGUES, AND THERE COME IN THOSE WHO ARE UNLEARNED OR UNBELIEVERS, WILL THEY NOT SAY THEY ARE MAD?” And they will even be like barbarians unto them, as written in 1 CORINTHIANS 14:11, and I quote, “THEREFORE, IF I KNOW NOT THE MEANING OF THE VOICE, I SHALL BE UNTO HIM THAT SPEAKETH A BARBARIAN, AND HE THAT SPEAKETH SHALL BE A BARBARIAN UNTO ME.”  Speaking in tongue, without any interpretation is like speaking into the air, as written in 1 CORINTHIANS 14:9, and I quote, ‘’SO LIKEWISE YE, EXCEPT YE UTTER BY THE TONGUE, WORDS EASY TO BE UNDERSTOOD, HOW SHALL IT BE KNOWN WHAT IS SPOKEN? FOR YE SHALL SPEAK INTO THE AIR.’’

On the day of Pentecost, the tongues that were spoken, by the apostles and the other disciples, numbering about one hundred and twenty (120 ), were tongues of men, spoken in different languages of the different countries of the world, from whence came all the Jews to Jerusalem to observe the Pentecost. Pentecost was a Jewish festival, held on the fiftieth day after the Jews Passover.

This article is very important because what is being preached out there is simply unbelievable.
Some (in fact a lot) of people these days preach that a born again Christian must speak in tongues as a demonstration of the feeling by the Holy Spirit. I never believed or accept that teaching because of exactly what this article is saying,

In this end time, speaking in tongues is another way of deceiving people that someone is filled with the holy spirit. And according to what Bible said, speaking in tougues is part of the evidence that someone is filled with holy spirit and it doesn't mean those that can't speak are not filled.

And that is the believe everywhere, if you are yet to speak in another language you are a new baby.

Bible make us to understand that this language is an unknown language, some people are still tying speaking in tongues. How they understand the language is not lucid to me but my own is that they have condemned some people that can't speak in tongues.

Let me share this experience with you. When I was in undergraduate level, I had a friend name Ope, in his fellowship is hard for them to speak in normal language everything is in tongues. My friend felt uncomfortable going to that church because he can't speak and everything is blabalrakebara!

One day tbey said if you know you can't speak in tongues come out and he stepped out.  He said they just held his head twisting it to and fro at one stage he forced him to speak jargo so that they can free his head.

They thought he spoke truly but he deceived them because of the neck pain. This thing is not by force, but most of them have neglected bible and start using their own understand which is definitely going to fail them.
