One of the fundamental beliefs of the SDA is the belief in (Spiritual Gifts and Ministries No 17) but what is intriguing is whenever they list these gifts in their commentaries the gift of tongues is always conspicuous by its absence from the list.
The gift of tongues is clearly articulated as one of the gifts of the church in the New Testament
Mark 16:17 ESV
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
Acts 2:4 ESV
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
1 Corinthians 12:10 esv
10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
Why does the SDA seem to sideline this gift?
