When one hears that someone is speaking in tongues they are not referencing the bible scripture where all standing in the house of worship begin to speak in their native tongue and only the children of God understood. It sounded like their native language.
Acts 2: 1-47
When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. .
Now days the controversy stands because man once again has his own interpretation of something of God.
