St. Paul's Letter to the Corinthians

To justify the use of the languages, refer above all to St. Paul's Letter to the Corinthians (CHS 12-14). But the Apostle Paul wrote this passage precisely because "tongues" had become a source of disorder in the Corinthian Church; And even when it does not prohibit them, which permanently minimizes their significance. This quote, instead of encouraging any modern revival of "languages", should instead discourage, especially when it is discovered (as Pentecosts themselves admit) that there are other sources speak in languages ​​other than the Holy Spirit! As Orthodox Christians we already know that tongues as a true gift of the Holy Spirit can not appear among those outside the Church of Christ
