My question has to do with 1 Corinthians 27-30, where
27 If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn; and let one interpret. 28 But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silence in church and speak to himself and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. 30 If a revelation is made to another sitting by, let the first be silent.
This passage has concerned me for sometime. I have intermittently attended Catholic Charismatic prayer groups over the last few years,and would like to begin going more regularly. But I've noticed that
none of the groups seem to abide by Corinthians-- in other words, many, many people pray in tongues all at once. Also, I've yet to hear anyone "translate" the tongues. This seems to be in direct contradicton to what St. Paul wrote.
Can anyone give some insight on this question...note, I said, this question - not the question of the charismatic movement in general, but this particular point.
