1 Corinthians 12:10,30

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another many kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues. [Not all faithful Christians are to expected to speak in tongues; yet today the Pentecostals believe that speaking in tongues is the proof of all true Christians, which false belief this chapter's verses 10 and 28-30 prove totally false; in fact, the theme of this whole chapter is different gifts to different members of the body. The Word of the Lord within also contradicts that false belief, saying, "the tongues of the Holy Spirit are optional."]

 30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?
