        Speaking in tongues
I received this gift when I was very young, I still pray in tongues in private. I was told this is Satan and not God talking to us. I feel that it is God. Any passages to show that I am right.

      1 Corinthians 14:22   
Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

      1 Corinthians 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.

Notice how it says UNTO GOD. You can surely give this scripture to the person speaking untruly to show them what they say is a lie.

      1 Corinthians 14:15   
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.


I feel very sad for the person that is ignorantly telling you your tongues are speaking to Satan.

Let me try to clear this up. When you are speaking in tongues to the Lord it is the Holy Spirit praying for you. It is your prayer language. Only GOD can understand your tongues unless it needs to be interpretted. We pray in tongues for 2 main reasons. One because often enough we do not know how to pray for ourselves and secondly so Satan CANNOT UNDERSTAND what we are saying.

Tongues is a gift from the Lord. Sadly many people do not understand it and are uncomfortable with it so they put it down or say they don't believe in it. The Devil does not want you to speak in tongues so he will say anything to get you to stop.

Continue what you are doing and don't listen to evil ignorant people for they know not what they say. It is perfectly clear in the Bible that we ARE to speak in tongues! God Bless!
