Tongues speaking minister resigns from Baptist seminary board
DALLAS — A pastor who has been at odds with the leadership of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary over speaking in tongues has resigned from the school's board of trustees.

The Rev. Dwight McKissic said in a resignation letter that he has been "distracted and consumed" by the controversy and needs to refocus on his family and church, The Dallas Morning News reported on its Web site Thursday night.

The letter, addressed to Van McClain, chairman of the Fort Worth seminary's trustee board, was released Thursday, the newspaper said.

Trustees voted 36-1 in October not to tolerate any promotion of "private prayer language" at the school. McKissic, pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, was the lone dissenter. ...

I want to make it unequivocally clear; yea,
without any mental reservation(s) that I commend the "'tongues' speaking/praying" minister for standing on his conviction(s) in resigning from the Southern Baptist seminary board on account of the "'tongues' speaking/praying" matter.

Although I personally believe that 'Tongues'
"speaking" as practiced in Acts 2 has technically & historically "ceased"; and, that 'Tongues' "praying" as practiced in The Corinthian
Epistles is still in operation today:

I do not believe that it should Divide Protestant Pentecostal Brethren from Fellowshipping & Associating with Other Non-'Tongues'-"speaking/praying" Protestant Biblical-Literalist Brethren.

On one hand The Word of God says:

"Forbid not to speak with tongues" -- *see I Corinthians 14:39d

Yet on the other hand The Word of God also says:

"Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than
ten thousand words in an unknown tongue."-- **see I Corinthians 14:19.

*NOTE: I personally/publicly do NOT "speak" in 'Tongues'.

I personally/publicly do NOT forbid to "speak" in 'Tongues'.

I personally/publicly do NOT promote to "speak" in 'Tongues'.

Praise God for your post.

There is much tongue-speaking that is not genuine, but that does not annul the true gift.

When praying, words become repetitious, in addition, we do not know how to pray. But the Spirit makes intercession through. Tongues are very edifying to the individual so exercised.

Ken Lofgren,

May I suggest you listen to a sermon on here from Rev. John Greer on tongues speaking. Very interesting.

Are you a servant of man or God? Galatians 1:10 "For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ". I'm glad to hear about a man of God standing up for what he believes...the Bible! All over the world, Christians are praying in tongues. Why? Because they believe what the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 14 vs 5 "I wish you all spoke in tongues", vs. 18 "I thank my God I speak with togues more than you all..." vs. 39 "do not forbid to speak with tongues". ARE WE READING THE SAME BIBLE!!! In his letter to the Church of Corinth, Paul wrote that tongues were a way for one to either pray to God in the spirit (vs. 14) or to speak in a way for the church to receive prophecy and edification as long as someone can interpret. Paul wanted the church seek spiritual gifts in order to excel, which is why we should not ban them! He did however place parameters on prophecy and tongues so that church would keep itself in an orderly manner. The Church needs to be acting more in the spirit and less in the flesh. Who are we to ban or limit the very ways God wants to operate in us? That is why many churches today are dry and lifeless. Let us follow God instead of man, and obey His word and be more like the 1st century churches...who incidentally prayed often in tongues.

Speaking in tongues,

http://www.ihcc.org/images/booklets/pdf/L208.pdf

Gil Rugh has been doing a series of sermons concerning speaking in tongues e.g., "Gift of Tongues - Background & Context"
http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=6107104714

"Speaking in Tongues for What Purpose?"

http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=6807125654

God, The Holy Spirit, knows what you want and need without even praying and private in babbling. Pray to God in a straightforward manner. I would not be surprised if he appreciated that you did give some thought to your prayers.
