A Church in the City – 1st Corinthians – part 25
Historically, God has used speaking in other languages as a sign to the faithless that judgment is coming. (Think about that for just a moment). Now when I say faithless, I don’t necessarily mean people without ANY faith but people that refuse to act on their faith and put it into practice. Paul quotes Isaiah 28:11-12 to prove his point that tongues were given as a sign not to believers but to unbelievers particularly the unbelieving Jew – as a sign. Not in the public setting. Tongues were not a sign for believers but for unbelievers. And that sign might not be a good one.
