Reading: 1 Corinthians 14:1-19
Quotes: “Paul does not wish that the Corinthians would abandon the practice altogether, since he regards it as a gift of the Spirit and one way to commune directly with God in praise and prayer. He himself speaks in tongues more than all of them (14:19). The problem is not with tongues per se but with uninterpreted tongues in the public assembly.” –Garland
