Southern Baptists to Open Their Ranks to Missionaries Who Speak in Tongues
After decade-long resistance, the Southern Baptist Convention will admit missionary candidates who speak in tongues, a practice associated with Pentecostal and charismatic churches.

The new policy, approved by the denomination’s International Mission Board on Wednesday (May 13), reverses a policy that was put in place 10 years ago.

Speaking in tongues is an ancient Christian practice recorded in the New Testament in which people pray in a language they do not know, understand or control. The practice died out until Pentecostalism emerged around the turn of the 20th century. In Pentecostal churches it is considered one of many “gifts” of the Holy Spirit, including healing and the ability to prophesize. ...

Yes, I was going to mention that but then thought It would sound arrogant if I said the original church members were baptists in practice, or baptizers. But the church would benefit more from a berean mind with a Macedonian call.

Correction: John Smyth Was NOT The Historic Founder Of "this movement"; That Is, The "Baptist Movement" !

The "Baptist Movement" Was A Movement Of The "Total Physical Immersion Of The Physical Human Body In Physical Water (aka H20)" Which Predates Historic Christianity; And, Was Practised By The Ancient Historic Hebrews &-Or Their Established Theocratic Religion Known As "Judaism":

Going As Far Back As Their "Cleansing" By "Water" &-Or "Blood-Sprinkling" Rituals Found Written In The FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF MOSES--ESPECIALLY THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS !

Historic CHRISTIAN-"BAPTISTS" &-Or "JUDEO"-/-HEBREW-CHRISTIAN--"BAPTISTS" On The Other Hand, Record Their Origins In The Physical Water-Immersing RITE &-Or RITUAL Observed & Practiced By THE COUSIN OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH: KNOWN AS "JOHN THE BAPTIST" &-OR "JOHN THE BAPTIZER (aka 'JOHN THE IMMERSER', 'JOHN THE SUBMERGER', 'JOHN THE DIPPER', 'JOHN THE DUNKER', 'JOHN THE PLUNGER', 'JOHN THE ENGULFER (IN &-OR WITH WATER)' & ETC. !

*ANCIENT "CATHOLICS" WERE "BAPTISTS" !

Not thinking I was familiar with John Smyth I looked up his history I thought this note worthy.

from Wiki Smyth "eventually rejected the doctrine of original sin and asserted the right of every Christian to hold his own religious views."

If an accurate history, he went from Anglican to Separatist to Mennonite to the above quote

As for whether we are confused or our pedigree not up too snuff. Well, maybe that discussion is best for baptists too fiquired out.
It is my understanding that "Baptist" is not a denomination, but the beliefs held in common by an assembly of like-minded people. Is this true?
Many think it is a branch of Protestantism because of commonly held beliefs. I was taught it is not.
Help me out.

I'm worried too. Did a failure to adhere to some scriptural truth lead up to this? It has been my observation that when there is an downward progression, something preceded it. Was it a failure to strive for scriptural understanding of things being taught? Was it because of women being exalted to pulpit service, syncretism, paganism, mising works with grace? It is strange that few have the gift of giving, or mercy, or intercessory prayer in the Baptist churches I've attended.
The church grows by love; not tongues. If all already use a common language, e.g. English, what is the need for tongues. Or am I the one confused. Perhaps if these tongue-speaking individuals would stand on a street corner and proclaim the Gospel, then we might see people coming to faith. Tongues are for unbelievers. The Body of Christ doesn't need signs.
Let's not forget the thousands of Presbyterian denominations that have come and gone the same way. Less of the holier than thou is in order here!

If they don't know what they're saying...that could be problematic unless they carry it out as the Bible dictates with interpretation and in order.
They don't know that there is no private prayer language in the Bible for starters so that should be a red flag right there.

When they spoke in tongues in the Bible it wasn't gibberish that nobody understood ( with the exception of the unbiblical church in 1Corinthians ) they spoke in their own tongue or language and God opened up the ears of all who were there. There wasn't any screaming and fallin out in the aisle like the churches today do cause this was the correct way. Man cannot make it happen it's all by the power of God

Speaking gibberish is not the way to win people to Christ!
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
The specific focus on spiritual gifts in the bible is on their function in the context of the local church. The spiritual gifts are grace gifts given according to the grace God gives to each individual believer to enable each one to serve others. Individual giftedness is not asked for, trained for, or earned. God dispenses the multifaceted gifts according to His sovereign purposes. Each believer then has a responsibility to use the giftedness entrusted to them as stewards. The foremost requirement is faithfulness in the use of the gift by God's standard of evaluation.

The various gifts that were miraculous in nature have ceased since they were for the purpose of validating the ministry of the apostles in the early church. Under consideration in this study are these gifts identified as being used by the apostles.
