I have heard many times of people speaking in tongues, this is the first I’ve heard of there being someone who understood such speaking as being in their own language.
I’ll relate again another from a dear friend in the Pacific NW.
She went on a tour to visit half a dozen or so Native American tribes as a kind of mission outreach.
At the closing of her time with 3 DIFFERENT tribes, while a tribal leader was praying over their shared time, she was praying quietly in tongues more or less under her breath but loud enough for someone standing nearby to hear her.
In EACH of those 3 DIFFERENT TRIBES WITH 3 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES, after the ending of the ending prayer time, an old timer in the tribe who’d been standing near my friend, spoke up and asked her “Where did you learn the more eloquent, [archaic] form of our language? You gave a flawless summary of the Gospel story in the old, seldom used, more formal form of our language.”
My friend had no idea she’d been speaking their language at all. She was just doing her usual of praying in tongues as she had ran out of things to pray in English.
That’s because it’s all hokum. The language of tongues is an “unknown” language only known by God. This story of speaking in tongues in English is, to put it best, poppycock.
