I know this question has probably been exhausted on here before, but I got to know. What is the gift of tongues? Is it being filled with the Holy Spirit speaking babble we can't understand, or is it an actual human language? Is speaking in tongues so other people can here the gospel, or is it for the Holy Spirit to pray for you? And most importantly is the modern view of tongues biblical and accurate? I'd like to get some answers because I don't know if I believe in modern tongue-speaking. I tried it once before, during it I FELT like I was filled with the Holy Spirit, but then afterwards I questioned it, and now I think it is silly.
