Dear Mr. Foster, I have experienced the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Weirded out yet? Didn't speak in tongues until a few years afterwards. The tongues I speak in are only for my own benefit and occur perhaps watching TV or a sermon or laying in bed at night. They are not for any gathering of Believers, but are only for personal edification. The prophetic dynamic of tongues spoken in an assembly requires two or three to interpret and the interpretations must agree. I have interpreted tongues, and the interpretation was germane to the edification of the people present, that is they learned something important in their walk with Jesus. I used to think you had a clue. However, I see now that you are a fake, a backslider moving quickly to become reprobate, defined by, as "an unprincipled person... "he had to present himself as more of a lovable reprobate than a spirit of corruption."

You are doing more harm than good as you turn your back on Jesus and the written Word of God, "twisting the Scriptures to your own destruction." How you remember biblical script is well beyond inaccurate and even seems to be purposeful. I am becoming convinced by your essays that you are a person not worth listening to. Read the Bible and seek His presence in your life.
