About Face to Face with Tongues - A Verse by Verse Examination and Exposition On the Subject of Tongues
From the Preface: "If tongues are for today, I want them. If tongues are not for today, I do not want to be deceived. The only way for any person to be convinced is if they are willing take the word of God, examine it honestly, and stand 100%..."
Dr. Younce believes if Tongues are from the Spiritual world, they're either of God or of Satan--it must be either one or the other. Dr. Younce makes a compelling case that Tongues are not for today. Dr. Younce concludes that Tongues were needed in New Testament times to authenticate the message and the messenger, and to spread the gospel to languages that those preaching could not speak. Dr. Younce examines the usual scriptures used to justify tongues, including Acts, 1 Corinthians, and Mark and shows how everything about their usage then differs today--in practice, in motive, and in circumstance. The author concludes that today's use of Tongues is not Biblical.
If you don't want to read the whole book, you can read the final chapter which presents a nice summary of Younce's arguments and the questions Tongues advocates must answer about Scripture.
From the opening chapter:
"There are four reasons the tongues of today cannot be that of Pentecost:
Wrong Motive. The languages spoken on Pentecost were spoken for God's glory. You do not find in Act_2:1-47 where any of those that spoke in tongues (languages) ever used this to judge the spirituality of other persons or themselves. Tongues advocates claim this for their glory as a sign of their mature spirituality. Yes, they say it comes from God--praising Jesus! But, in reality, they glory in their own manifestation of speaking in tongues as "evidence" of the Spirit's working in them.
Wrong Purpose. On the Day of Pentecost, God wanted His word preached so that all would understand, regardless of nationality. That was God's purpose and He accomplished it. Is this the purpose of tongues speakers today? If so, why do they not go to the foreign fields with God’s Word and not waste time training in the language schools. If they want all nations to hear, as the Lord did, why are they not preaching in tongues to the various nationalities abroad? (I understand those who actually try this are soon home again! ) No, their purpose is not that of the Lord’s, nor do their activities match what took place on Pentecost.
Wrong Manifestation. Of all the nationalities present on the Day of Pentecost, each one understood. I have never been in a tongues meeting yet where anybody understood, let alone those speaking a foreign language. Something is wrong. The problem: It is not the same thing that took place on the Day of Pentecost.
Wrong Spirit. It is either the Spirit of the Lord of the spirit of the Anti-Christ. You may say, "This is too narrow-minded." Do you remember what the Lord told the Church of Laodicea in Rev_3:15-16"
