My personal testimony - I spoke with other tongues (not my own language) for the first time in 1981 in an Assembly of God church in Austin, Tx. The Pastor took me in his office, gave me a short lesson on speaking in tongues, I raised my hands
in worship and just as I began to praise God, I felt a tingling sensation in my mouth and a warmth in my body. My tongue began to take on a life of its own and I could no longer speak in English but slowly began to make sounds that were hardly intelligible
at first, then they became more pronounced and sounded like an actual language. What language I don't know, but ever since that day, my walk with the Lord became much more stable and victorious. I could feel His presence with me where ever I went...and
though there have been many ups and downs in my life since then, my relationship with the Lord has grown deeper and richer and I can still feel His presence in my heart. I've since learned more about this wonderful experience personally and from my study
of the scriptures...the following study is a summary of scriptural references dealing with tongues as well as some personal commentary.
