I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

"Tongues" Are Mindless !

In a fascinating new study out of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine it was discovered, through brain imaging research, that brain activity in the frontal lobes decreased while Pentecostal subjects spoke in tongues. Why is this significant? The usual language centers are not used while speaking in tongues. There is a lack of intentional control.

This helps to explain why you can even do math while speaking in tongues. Speaking in tongues is more like tapping the foot while doing math than it is really speaking a language while calculating. This confirms that you are only talking to God and not to men or angels. This also explains why it needs "interpretation", (not like language interpreters) , and becomes the equivalent to prophecy.

Interesting research. It appears in the Nov. issue of the Journal of Psychiatry Research.

Neat, a sign of a sign.
...Though, of course, tongues is more than a sign.
