Speaking in Tongues, A Means Of Keeping Free From Worldly Contamination – KENNETH E HAGIN
I CORINTHIANS 14:28
28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
The sixth reason every Christian should speak in tongues is that this is a means of keeping free from the contamination of the ungodly and the profane, and all the vulgar talk around us on the job or out in public.
Notice from the scripture above that we can speak with tongues to ourselves. Paul said that in the church service, “If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God” (I Cor. 14:27-28).
If we can speak to ourselves and to God in a church service, we can also do it on the job. It won’t disturb anyone. In the barber shop, for instance, when men tell risque jokes, I just sit there and speak to myself and to God in tongues. Riding the train, bus, or airplane—we can speak to ourselves and to God. On the job—we can speak to ourselves and to God. Talking in tongues to yourself and to God will be a means of keeping free from contamination.
