Do People of Praise practice glossoialia?


I honestly did not know, because it is not something I associate with the Catholic church. Obviously, it kind of subverts the authority of the clergy if the laity can speak in tongues, and the priest's most impressive trick is speaking in Latin.

    GLOSSOLALIA: Speaking in tongues bears no resemblance to that described in the bible where everyone that heard understood clearly whilst the modern version is just psychobabble! It is also related to xenoglossy, which is speaking in a natural language that was previously unknown to the speaker after a brain injury! No surprise it was started in America by slaves from countries that practiced Voodoo!

    Some do, but of course you know that.  Someone that knows the word knows what it means.

    So it would seem you are trying to impress complete strangers with your vocabulary - quite sad really.

    Sometime, but nobody can understand it.

    No, if you mean true speaking in tongues like was done in the first century (Ac 2:4-6).

    All that ended toward the end of the first century as God's word was completed (1Cor 13:8-10); what we call today the "New Testament".  What some claim today is just mindless gibberish that psychologists have labeled "ecstatic utterances", and are not limited to certain "Christian" groups, but have been recorded in almost all cultures around the world including even in some Muslim sects.

    Yep, in nearly every religion around the world.  Despite the claims to the contrary, it has never been objectively or independently shown to be speaking in any actual language.

    Isn't that the psych disorder where you repeat what people say?
