The practice of speaking in tongues, or a private prayer language, is a fundamental teaching in the Charismatic movement. However, there are teachings in the hyper charismatic movement that go beyond this teaching, incorporating additional elements with this experience.
One such instance occurred when a group of people were encouraged by their leader to touch a whiteboard so as to encounter the power and the anointing of God. On this whiteboard was written a prayer language.
Is this a Biblical practice, or is this encroaching on New Age practices? Should we normalize such teachings? What about the belief of the private prayer language and its history?
Join me as we take a look at this practice and some concerns surrounding such practices. We will also take a look at the beliefs of Charles Fox Parham, the father of Pentecostalism, regarding tongues.
