In response to the question posed by Linda Eyambe regarding the practice of speaking in tongues-- I would like to "verify" from the religious perspective what the webmaster wrote. Speaking in tongues (New Testament style) is understood by the hearer but not the speaker. It was a gift given to the apostles, and transferred to others by the laying on of hands for the purpose of spreading of the gospel.

Individuals, who were given this gift secondhand, were unable to transfer it further, therefore it disappeared after that generation died. (Its purpose was fulfilled also) The silliness called "speaking in tongues" nowadays is exactly as he wrote also - peer pressure to demonstrate that you have the spirit. Too bad. It makes Christians look crazy.
