Bring It On: Speaking in Tongues

I just hear that if you don't speak in tongues, you're not saved? I've been saved for 24 years and don't speak in tongues. Does this mean I'm not saved? Can we use part of our tithes to help feed others in need or does it have to go to our church? Read Transcript


Terry: WE HAVE A FEW

MINUTES LEFT AND WE WANT TO

ANSWER SOME OF THE E-MAIL

QUESTIONS YOU SENT IN.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM NANCY,

WHO SAYS, "MY FAMILY HAS

BEEN RECEIVING NUMEROUS

PHONE CALLS AROUND 3:00 IN

THE MORNING.

WE ANSWER, BUT NO ONE IS

THERE.

THE FACT THAT WE CAN'T

FIGURE OUT WHO IT IS OR WHY

THEY'RE CALLING HAS SHAKEN

US A BIT, BUT WE ALWAYS TURN

TO GOD FOR SECURITY.

BUT SOMETIMES I TEND TO HAVE

SCARY THOUGHTS AND I LET

THEM TAKE OVER MY MIND.

DOES THAT MEAN I'M LOSING

FAITH IN GOD?

HOW CAN I KEEP MY FAITH AND

KEEP MY PEACE OF MIND."

Gordon: LET ME GIVE YOU

PRACTICAL ADVICE.

LEARN HOW TO USE STAR 69.

THAT IS A PROGRAM THAT MOST

TELEPHONE PROVIDERS HAVE

THAT ALLOWS YOU TO KNOW THE

NUMBER OF THAT LAST CALL.

SO THE NEXT TIME IT HAPPENS,

REMEMBER STAR 69.

AND YOU CAN EVEN ASK YOUR

TELEPHONE PROVIDER, CAN YOU

GIVE ME A LIST OF WHO IS

CALLING, IF YOU HAVE A

SPECIFIC TIME AND DATE.

THEY MIGHT STILL HAVE THE

RECORD OF THAT.

SO YOU CAN FIND OUT.

Terry: HOW

DOES THAT

WORK?

YOU HANG

UP FROM THE

CALL --

Gordon: YOU

HANG UP AND

PICK

IT UP AND HIT STAR 69

AND YOU CAN FIND OUT.

JUST ON, ARE YOU LOSING YOUR

FAITH?

NO.

NO.

NO.

FEAR IS A VERY NATURAL

THING, BUT FEAR IS TORMENT.

AND YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT

GOD IS YOUR SECURITY.

YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT.

SO DON'T LET FEAR TORMENT

YOU.

WHENEVER YOU HAVE THAT AND

WHENEVER YOU HAVE THOSE

SCARY THOUGHTS, ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS TURN TO HIM.

AND HIS PERFECT LOVE WILL

CAST OUT ALL FEAR.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT HE

HAS GOT YOU, THAT YOU'RE IN

HIS RIGHT HAND, THEN OKAY,

WHAT CAN MAN DO TO ME.

IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE

AGAINST US.

AND JUST START MEDITATING ON

THAT.

AND YOU'LL FIND THE RELIEF

YOU NEED.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

DARLENE WHO SAYS, "I JUST

HEARD ON A CHRISTIAN

PROGRAM, IF YOU DO NOT SPEAK

IN TONGUES, YOU ARE NOT

SAVED.

I'VE BEEN SAVED FOR OVER 24

YEARS, AND I'VE NEVER SPOKEN

IN TONGUES.

I'M VERY UPSET OVER THIS."

Gordon: DARLENE DON'T

BE UPSET.

"ALL WHO CALL ON THE NAME OF

THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED."

JESS, JESHUA, IT MEANS

SAVIOR.

GOD, SAVE ME.

THAT'S ALL YOU NEED.

EVEN IN THE BOOKS OF ACTS,

PAUL GOES TO A CHURCH AND

THEY JUST HEARD ABOUT THE

SAVE YOU SAVIOR, AND THEY

WERE SAVED AND HE ANNOUNCES

THERE IS THE BAPTISM AND THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT THE BAPTISTISM, WE'VE

GOT PLENTY OF TEACHING.

THERE IS A GREAT ONE I WOULD

REALLY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO

GET, FROM HAROLD BADISON,

HOW TO RECEIVE THE BAPTISM

AND SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.

Terry: CINDY SAYS, "MY

FAMILY DOESN'T HAVE A HOME

SERVICE.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE GETTING A

LOT OF OUR TEACHING FROM

TELEVISION, AND SO WE SEND

IN OUR DONATIONS TO SOME OF

THOSE.

IF WE TOOK PART OF OUR

TITHES AND HELPED OUT THOSE

FAMILIES, IS IT STILL

CONSIDERED A TITHE?"

Gordon: CINDY, I SAY

YES.

I THINK THERE IS A LOT OF

CONFUSION OVER TITHING.

BECAUSE OF MALACHI, BRING

ALL OF THE TITHES INTO THE

STOREHOUSE.

THE STOREHOUSE WAS THE

TEMPLE, SO THAT WAS THE

PLACE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

BUT JESUS SAYS, WHATEVER YOU

DO TO THE LEAST OF THESE, MY

BROTHEREND, YOU DO ON TO

ME.

SO IF YOU FEEL COMPASSION

FOR THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU

AND YOU WANT TO HELP THEM,

BY ALL MEANS CONSIDER THAT

YOU'RE TITHING TO THE LORD

WHEN YOU DO THAT.

Terry: ACTUALLY IN OUR

CULTURE TODAY, WITH THE

NEEDS BEING SO GREAT, THIS

IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

CHRISTIANS TO LI LET THEIR

LIGHT SHINE IN THE MIDST --

Gordon: I THINK IT IS

TIME FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST

TO REALLY STEP UP.

NOT JUST HERE IN AMERICA,

BUT AROUND THE WORLD.
