    Why do people in this world speak in different tongues? I was told that God put a curse on mankind for something they did. Can anyone tell me what that was?

    Building a tower and thinking they were equal to God. I think that is how the story goes.

    Thanks,I found it,is that were the expression comes from “Why do you keep Babeling on”

    It was at the Tower Of Babel in Genesis 11. Man was being arragont by building this tower to heaven and it made God angry with them, so he confused their language so they couldn’t understand one another. Before that the whole world spoke one language. Needless to say, the tower wasn’t completed.

    It’s common to believe the tongues and scattering was a punishment for trying to reach God or be like him, but it’s really for disobeying the command to be fruitfull and multiply and hold dominion over all the earth. Diversity was God’s intention but they were being a collective unit and their arrogance was getting out of hand. Languages corrected the situation and humankind had but one choice – spread out and diversify. It’s not so much as a curse because it’s God’s wish that humankind hold variety.

    This topic is timely considering today is Pentecost and the Holy Spirit enabled the Apostles to be heard in many tongues. <img src=” title=”Smile” />

    For sure, the event is the most remarkable event in Acts for me. Have any of you experienced any form of tongues yourselves or witnessed it among another Christian?

    Yes. In fact this morning at church my baby girl was speaking in tongues to the other babies sitting next to her. :o
