    Why would you not want something that God provides in the atonement?

    I would argue that baptism in the Holy Spirit is necessary for salvation; however, does that mean you have to speak in tongues? That is a different story. Initial evidence is a sticky point for Pentecostals, but it happens to be a Pentecostal distinctive: so, take initial evidence away and you don’t have Pentecostal you have Charismatic.

    Derrick: You said, “take initial evidence away and you don’t have Pentecostal you have Charismatic.”

    Not true. I don’t believe it’s the initial physical evidence (though it can manifest the Baptism) and I’m not a Charismatic as Charismatics believe a whole slew of nonsense. Charismatics are not defined by that one distinctive alone.

    Derrick Harmon You said, “take initial evidence away and you don’t have Pentecostal you have Charismatic.” And you are absolutely right. It is not our fault some Charismatics are abandoning their Pentecostal roots and the initial evidence

    Im 1000% for it but KNOW that it isn’t required for salvation…BUT that being said…life without the infilling & speaking in tongues is like driving a 4 cylinder Ferrari

    I once drove a W12 engine Audi S8 with 2 cylinders skipping. Took it to the mechanic who said – big deal you’ve got 10 more working. Which reminds me early Pentecostals believed in this thing called FULLNESS in the SPIRIT and only then they could testify about being saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost. Nowadays ppl can hardly testify they are saved…

    But one can be filled and bornagain but not speak in other tongues. Im not sure why that is but I KNOW it to be true…

    I know many who are saved but don’t have their prayer language…I don’t really understand how that happens but it does.

    No it is not required. Only faith & works are (James 2:26). James 2:26) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. ~KJV~

    I hear you…my point is that without the infilling and speaking in tongues ones Christian life is mostly powerless.

    I have been for over 38 years. Got saved and baptized in the Spirit all on the same night.

    You receive that AFTER you get save. The requirement for salvation is to believe that Jesus was born, is our Savior, died and rose again so we might have eternal life. Then you are baptized with water and the Holy Ghost which the evidence is speaking in other tongues. That is God’s language and the devil doesn’t know what you praying about when you speak to God.

    Speaking in tongues is one manifestation of the Spirit. I’ve never spoken in tongues but I have been given words of knowledge and words of prophecy.

    Sorry to say but not everybody that prays in tongues is Christian. Nor is everybody that raises their right and to God and swears loyalty to Christ saved. Sorry about that…

    Tongues aren’t necessary for salvation. They are required for the infilling of the Holy Ghost because they are the initial evidence of the baptism. We are saved by Grace through faith.

    Romans 8:26 King James Version (KJV)

    26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
