Special thanks to my fellow Oneness Apostolic Pentecostal brother and Elder, James Anderson:
|Juanita Bynum II|
Let me first state this unequivocally...I have received the gift of the baptism of the Holy Ghost which is an experience subsequent to salvation, and I DO speak in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and that with confidence according to scripture which states:
1 Cor. 14:2 ~ For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.
I also understand that speaking in tongues is a present day gift of the Spirit of God delivered unto men for edification of both the individual and the church so that the will of God can be accomplished in this space and time continuum.
So neither "tongues" nor the "gift of tongues" are not in question as I believe ample biblical evidence can be delivered to support such practice and use of it in and among the congregation of the Saints both with and without an interpretation.
HOWEVER, with all of that said...what can't be supported is what Juanita II is doing. Having graduated from the $5,000 pen, and a wedding dress with a sword on her 50th birthday, in yet another saga and amazing chapter of the unbelievable mega- ministry mess that Juanita has become, Juanita Bynum II has struck once again to embarrass and bring shame to all Pentecostal believers.
