I actually did see this brief comment, but had no idea what you meant. Now 
that you have clarified it, I would unequivocally disagree!!!!

However, I do note that in 1 Cor 14, some Corinthians had manufactured their 
own "gift of tongues," (ecstatics) but this false "tongues" is the subject 
of Paul's sharp rebuke. They were acting like children.

As Paul indicates in 1 Cor. 14:21-22, the gift of Gentile Languages was 
prophesied in Isaiah 28. The Isaiah "near" fulfillment was in perfectly 
understood Gentile Languages. Same with the "far" fulfillment.

But then again, Carl has always warned us that he is
very Liberal  :o )

Thank you,
