SBC poll: Half of pastors say ‘tongues’ valid

In Uncategorized on June 23, 2007 at 2:14 pm

“The findings came from LifeWay Christian
Resources, an SBC agency known for its church education resources, and
were released June 1—only days before the divisive issue was expected
to arise at the June 12-13 annual meeting of Southern Baptists.

As Pentecostal and charismatic movements have grown in the past 100 years,
the SBC has steadfastly denied the authenticity of modern-day
glossolalia, or speaking in tongues. Its leaders have backed the theory
that such spiritual gifts as described in the New Testament were
legitimate only in the early years of the church.” From Christian Century article
