You rely on humanistic understanding and attack those here and the very word of God. You use terms not even found in the bible but in a secular humanism book which is more about atheism than Christianity. the Bible does not have the words" gibberish, free-vocalization. That was created to explain the supernatural power of God which you do not believe happens today and use worldly terms and man intellectual ability to disprove the word of God. You have no edifying words nothing comforting all you have is hate.
I would argue that you’re relaying on a complete redefinition and understanding of “tongues” that came about in the early 1900’s after the failure of Parham and his ilk to demonstrate that what they were producing were real, rational languages hitherto unknown by those speaking them (i.e., xenoglossy). One of the results of this redefinition and understanding of “tongues” was the reading into the narratives of concepts and things that are simply not there and never were, in order to “proof” the modern phenomenon.
No, you won’t find “free-vocalization” in the Bible, because that’s not what “tongues” refers to – when the word is used for something spoken, refers to real, rational languages…every single time; nothing more, nothing less.
The supernatural power of God certainly does work today, it can even be argued that it exists in the "tongues experience”, but the ‘tongues’ themselves (i.e. the speech that is produced) is just not supernatural, no matter how much people would like it to be.
There’s no hate at all – just a reiteration of truth with respect to the modern ‘tongues’ phenomenon.
