Hello - i have 2 questons regarding the 12-disciples only tongues theory thats been raised...

It was stated that only the 12 disciples would have received the tongues manifestation at pentecost.
It was also stated that tongues at pentecost were clearly defined languages (which they were).

Question 1:  Why then were a total of 15 languages heard, when only a total of 12 people evidently spoke in tongues? (Acts 2:8-12)

Question 2: If as has been eluded, tongues was for preaching, why did Peter not stand up and preach the gospel in his newly given tongue? Why did he simply use his learned mother tongue to do the preaching?

Oi!

You're stealing all my (future) thunder! Yell That's twice now that I've had to sigh and think, "well, now. There goes someone else hammering nails I'd hoped to use, into this particular Revivalist coffin." Still, it's to be expected that one can't have all the fun, I suppose

Keep it up, bucko! Laughing

Blessings,

Ian

Oops. I just came across it and couldn't help myself. (Well ... I didn't stop to think that you would already be well aware of it and could have been holding back for a reason.Foot in mouth)

I should have realised that a person in your business, let alone with your experience in this area, would have a well thought out plan. Laughing

And with that I think I'd best respect TBerry's request and 'allow you room to respond'. (Apologies to you TBEmbarassed)

Hi, bloke.

Oops. I just came across it and couldn't help myself. (Well ... I didn't stop to think that you would already be well aware of it and could have been holding back for a reason.)

Don't worry about it. The only reason I 'hold-back' a little pertinent info now and then, is for the 'katchang!' factor that happens when little diversions are invariably 'tied-off' Wink

I should have realised that a person in your business, let alone with your experience in this area, would have a well thought out plan. Laughing

Don't sweat it. Plans need to be inherently flexible if they're to survive for more than 10 seconds after the first 'shot' is fired Wink Anyway, TBerry probably already realises that he's in 'check', whilst I've viewed the board from every angle and knew beforehand that it's actually 'check-mate'. Still, I'm happy to let him play out the remainder of his game.

And with that I think I'd best respect TBerry's request and 'allow you room to respond'. (Apologies to you TBEmbarassed)

Let's see if TBerry has the manners to respond to my many requests first, before I trouble myself going into further detail Undecided

Blessings,

Ian

TBerry,

I'm deafened by your silence! Oh, well, I guess you have nothing to add to the defence of your position after all. Gonna repent now? Wink

Blessings,

Ian
