To say we don’t seek tongues, we just seek the Holyghost and tongues come, seems a little bit “dishonest”. We do seek the evidence of tongues whether we admit it or not.
Very true.

My observation is that:

Most Christians identifying as Charismatic or Pentecostal DO, or have, spoken in tongues, and it very often correlates with them receiving the Holy Spirit in their lives and life changing conversion.

Most Christians identifying as nonCharismatic or nonPentecostal DO NOT speak in tongues at the time of conversion and receiving the Holy Spirit in their lives with life changing conversion.

I know many in each category and have no reason to question the experience of either simply on the grounds of whether they speak in tongues.

I am a firm believer in the Old Paths

Articles on such subjects as "The New Birth," will be accepted, whether they teach that the new birth takes place before baptism in water and Spirit, or that the new birth consists of baptism of water and Spirit. - THE PENTECOSTAL HERALD Dec. 1945

"It is doubtful if any Trinitarian Pentecostals have ever professed to believe in three gods, and Oneness Pentecostals should not claim that they do." - Daniel Segraves
