Good Explanation Good explanation on tongues (languages). However, when there is a need, God can still work in a similar manner as in the New Testament. Case in point: There was a pastor from the US who visited the poor country of Haiti to speak in their yearly special meeting. The pastor did not speak the Haitian language so he had to use an interpreter. However, it was not working out well. The pastor from the US realized it and stopped in mid-sermon. He prayed for God's help to communicate to the people. Then he continued his message in English and the Haitian people heard it in their own language (without an interpreter).
