Non-Denominational/Speaking of tongues

Question
I understand speaking in tongues is not okay in Modern day, but why can I do it?

One night I was touched by the Holy Spirit. I had never spoken in tongues before. I spoke in tongues that night then translated the information. If it is wrong then why am I able to do it? How did I learn this?

Answer
Dear Luis,

I don't know that it is wrong. Who says? The Scriptures give us indication that HIS Spirit continues to gift HIS people according to HIS will. Consider;

1Co 12:10 "...and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues."

Folks who have decided that they know better than HIS Spirit have decided that HIS gifts and HIS empowering are done away with! Nonsense! GOD, who does not change, has not changed!

May you grow in the knowledge of THE ONE who DOES NOT CHANGE and be blessed in HIS LOVE and the gifts of HIS Spirit!

Sincerely,
Pastor Ron

Expertise

I feel comfortable answering questions regarding those practices of Christianity that are not in line with the Holy Scriptures. I believe that I can answer questions about the Law of GOD and it's application for professing believers in JESUS today. I can help folks understand what GOD'S Word says on a variety of subjects like; Personal Discipleship, Holy Spirit, Marriage & Family, Holiness, Grace, Demonology, Prophecy, the Last Days, etc. I may not know all of the answers, but I know someone who does!

Experience

I have been a Christian since 1977 and a pastor since 1988 in a Non-Denominational church setting. Prior to that I came out of a drug / alcohol background and have been able to use that experience as well as a daily study of GOD'S Word to sort out my own life and hopefully to help others do the same. I have studied Christianity extensively and major in it's biblical and non-biblical perspectives on life. I have studied the traditions of Evangelicalism and am able to offer answers to those seeking answers on more of a biblical approach in their life.

Education/Credentials
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies. I have taught both Old Testament and New Testament studies in two Bible Colleges: Logos Bible College and Calvary Chapel Bible College. I have been teaching the Bible in home bible studies, weekly church services, college courses and through radio broadcasts for 25 years.
