1 Corinthians 14:26
More and more Baptists and reformed evangelicals testify of their tongues & prophecies, or at least their openness to it. It’s becoming trendy to be ‘reformed & charismatic’, or as I call them, ‘Calvismatics’. (And indeed, many of these are dear brothers in Christ from whom we can learn much.)
1 Cor. is all about confronting worldliness with the life-changing power of the gospel. – See, the church had become like the world.
There was too much of Corinth in the church, and too little of the true Church in Corinth.+ Realise that there was nothing uniquely Christian about ecstatic speech and strange utterances: Many of the pagan Greco-Roman religions, including those active at Corinth, also had bizarre tongues. – Just as recent studies have shown was common in Zulu tradition as well, and in other traditional cultures.
