    Yes, this is similar to the Pentecostal/Charismatic charge that ...
    other denominations were ripping many pages out of their Bibles!
    One positive result of this tragedy: their Bibles were lighter to carry to church!

    All of this nonsense (and many similar nonsenses) which church denominations
    have chosen to believe ... all lead back to Satan, the greatest liar and deceiver!

    All humans are spiritual idiots ... it's just that born-again believers are less so.
    And those whom Jesus has baptized (anointed) with the Holy Spirit
    (with the confirmation of speaking a few words in tongues) are even less so.
    Born-again Christians just need to learn their place in Christ's body, the church.
    All are needed ... with some being anointed to have a special ministry, etc.
    But, God's Plan was never meant to be squashed by certain parts of His body.

    Everyone will wish that they had some of the spiritual power gifts in 1 Cor 12
    during the up-coming great tribulation of the antichrist.

  2. Romans 3:23......
    "All, all have sinned and come short of the glory of God".

    We are all sinners but not all sinners are spiritual idiots. Your comment that those who speak in tongues are less of an idiot than those who do not is problematic as it opens a swinging door. I would encourage you to move away from that kind of thinking as it is demeaning as well as against the rules of this site.
