And I do not permit a woman to teach or have authority over a man.But to be silent"Preaching is teaching.1Cor.11:3-16,1Cor 14:34-35,Ecc.3:7.

    Remember satan was God's right hand man therefore he understands everything no matter the tongue. There would be no scripture to your comment.

    Avire,man cannot teach this. It is, as all gifts given by God according to his will, to whom he wills. Don't be deceived by the false teachers and false "Christians" of our day. May the Lord lead you into his truth.

    True tongues are a gift only given from GOD. THE ONLY LANGUAGE THE DEVIL DONT UNDERSTAND.when you speak in tongues,it is always for someone else present to hear. it cannot be taught , learned or read in books as it is a gift from GOD.
