I"ve known Apostolic since 1981, but became a backslider because of "loving this present world"...Glad that God had mercy on me, and brought me back. I'm still learning the true meaning of Repentance, Baptism in Jesus name, and the power of the Holy Ghost with evidence in speaking in tongues. Also, "No man cometh unto the Father but by Me'...so much to learn. God's word is more important than my natural food.
Amen! Oh wait, sorry, "evidence of speaking in tongues" has no return in a Bible search...but otherwise, Amen!

Did you want me to show you the verses that shows right after the people received the Holy Ghost, they spake in an unknown tongue ? One instance I know off the top of my head was when Peter came to the house of Cornelius.
Acts 10:
44 Even as Peter was saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell upon all who had heard the message.
45 The Jewish believers who came with Peter were amazed that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out upon the Gentiles, too.
46 And there could be no doubt about it, for they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.Then Peter asked, 47 "Can anyone object to their being baptized, now that they have received the Holy Spirit just as we did?"
48 So he gave orders for them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. (NLT)

It is not my job to decide what is a heaven or hell issue, that's up to scripture. It is not my job to privately interpret scripture, adding or taking away, that is wrong as well. It is however commissioned to me to rightly divide the word of truth and to study to show myself approved. God's blessings. JBol

Ah, you'll note that, having already occurred in the upper room, and in the court of the Jews, the Holy Spirit expressed tongues to the Gentiles here; connecting them all, and with Christ. Curiously, these are the only three examples, and one might say that the purpose of the expression of tongues in these instances--which I'm understanding as speaking one's own language while being heard in the hearer's native tongue, and not babbling--was to provide a bonafide connection to Christ for all.

This is an old scab, and I don't want to pick it, but reiterate
that the Apo/Pent phrase "...with evidence..." is lacking...evidence, sorry.
I certainly believe tongues is a gift, that one may or may not get, as evidenced red-letter, and wish you all the best.

Trust in Jesus. He will help you stay true to God

Let it be understood that Apostolic Friends Forum is an Apostolic Forum.
Apostolic is defined on AFF as:


  1. There is One God. This one God reveals Himself distinctly as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
  2. The Son is God himself in a human form or "God manifested in the flesh" (1Tim 3:16)
  3. Every sinner must repent of their sins.
  4. That Jesus name baptism is the only biblical mode of water baptism.
  5. That the Holy Ghost is for today and is received by faith with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues.
  6. The saint will go on to strive to live a holy life, pleasing to God.
