Jan Crouch Speaking in Tongues



This is so fake. This video is from 1982. Even the emotionally laden prayer of Paul Crouch, uses the same fear of Armageddon and healing the USA themes we see now. Jan Crouch's tongue speaking is so false. If you have studied languages and know the patterns of them, tongue speakers appear even more ludicrous. In my early days as a Christian, I visited a few Pentecostal churches and heard almost the same thing from those speaking in tongues. It's all they are all speaking the same non-language, snippets of words and no complete sentences. She repeated a few "words" to make it seem more real. This is all show-boating. I don't believe in Pentecostalism at all. Speaking in tongues is false too.

I'm not so sure it is fake. These people are tools of Satan and he can speak through them using anything. The verse that says that not everyone who calls Lord, Lord is genuine and will see heaven. But the foolish will be taken in.

A demonic source for the tongues? It's possible. I'm sure that is happening with some of them who fall backwards, and who writhe around. You can tell evil spirits have taken over.

I don't believe the speaking in tongues-aka'special prayer language' is true. I believe it is a deception. Recently, I was asked point bank about my thoughts on it. I wasn't volunteering to get into a theological debate, but was pushed out on center stage in front of 3 people, by being questioned. I am an introvert and shy in front of groups, but the Lord took over as I started preaching...ugh. I was a bit shaken up. I have to defend the faith as a servant of Jesus Christ. There isn't any 'special secret prayer language'. Jesus said to test all things against the Word of God. If you don't know what you are saying then you can be blaspheming God with a deceiving spirit, such as the kundalini spirit. There is the spiritual gift of tongues, such as that at pentecost, but that is different. I believe that it can still exist today, but there must be an interpreter. God is not going to give you a 'special prayer language' that you can't test against scriptures. God will not contradict himself. The charismatics are some of the most deceived people and get so offended when you give them the truth. I would think that if they were truly a born again Christian, that they would take 'heed' and look into the issue further.....look at both sides of the argument. I've studied this subject extensively and always pray for the truth. If someone just wants to defend their view without asking God if they are in error, then that is a huge red flag. They are deceived in their minds and unwilling to 'love the truth' and submit to God's Word. The Bible says that the heart is desperately wicked, who can know it? They are deceived in there minds, leaning on their own understanding, and have a pride issue. We can't trust what we feel, think, or believe, unless it is backed up in the Word of God-rightly divided. These Christians will be the ones to betray us and send us to the guillotines.....grievous times we are in.

Bible Believer,

Falling backwards is a sign of judgment and can be verified by a study of scriptures.....again another deception. Falling forwards is different. The slaying in the spirit- falling backwards is part of the charismaniac witchcraft going on in the church- kundalini and other deceiving spirits have infiltrated the churches, and the people are 'loving' it, because it appeals to the flesh. The truth is 'repent', which if taught, might scare the people straight, and save a few souls. However, you then would probably not have the money making false 5013c church business that we have today. Most of mankind will perish, that's what the Bible says, not me. Very sad, but prayer, witness the truth through mockery and hate, and persevere through persecution and apostasy, is all that we can do.

Faith I agree, those were my conclusions about tongues when I wrote about them on a thread having to do with Pentecostalism. I agree falling backwards is a negative spiritual sign and there is a scripture against it, I may have posted it on this article...http://galatiansfour.blogspot.com/2010/11/azusa-street-pentecostalism-and-calvary.html

I believe Pentecostalism is a rotten root from the start and had dark spirits to it from the Azusa street roots.

Pentecostalism and the charismatic character has been used by those who deem themselves 'more spiritual,' 'more in tune with our LORD and Savior,' and more 'religious' than the rest of us all for the sake of power and control over people. These individuals love the praise of men, they love to manipulate people, and they love their money without having to work hard for it.

In researching Pentecostalism/charismatic movements, there are two elements that bind these so called 'moves of god' around the world....and these are sexual perversions of every sort and money.

Hi BB,

'Speaking in tongues' in NT was the claim that people were speaking in languages that they had not learned. Whether the bible's claim is true or not, it is plainly clear that the modern phenomenon is speaking gibberish.

The Pentecostal emphasis on supernatural spiritual gifts seems to take precedence over compassion,mercy and loving kindness. This contradicts i Cor chs. 12-14 where the gifts were meant to be exercised in love and were said to be given for the common good of the body of Christ.

The gifts are also said to be given sovereignly by God according to his will, not to be manipulated by fanatical charismatics. The ecstatic states that many whip themselves into are a failure of these people to recognise that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the compassionate Jesus.

Shalom,

John Arthur

I once went to a Pentecostal church when I was dating my ex-girlfriend. It was her home church and they were having homecoming. They had all the usual insanity, and one lady started speaking in "tongues" towards the end. During the meal after, she was in the table just behind me. She claimed that her "tongue" was Japanese. So I turned to her and said "Watashi wa Sukeri Uriamu-San, Ogenki desu ka?" (translates to I'm William Sculley. How are you?). She looked at me like I had a second head.
